This was taken last week at his surprise party

Dad had a heart attack on Tuesday and was flown to TMC! It was so scary and amazing all at the same time. We all feel so blessed that it all went the way it did. He had a precedure done where they go up into the artery in his groin and it goes up a shoots dye into his heart so they can find where the damage was. They said that there was some (crud) in one of his 3 ateries and that it was taken care of with the precedure. all the other tests came back good a couple days later and I was able to drive him and my mom home today!!! I can't believe how lucky and blessed we feel! Heather, Trevor, Shawna and C.J met us at TMC and we loved the time we had together to pull from eachother and lean on one another. I love my family so much and as hard as it was to be there for that reason we have all commented how much we all needed that family one on one time with just the syblings and no kids. We missed Rex and wish he could have been there but it was nice to talk to him on an hourly basis.!!
It has been one emotional rollercoaster after another but I have felt the Lord's had and comfort from the start. Thank you to my wonderful husband and amazing Bishop for the blessing he recieved in the ER. It was just what we all needed to hear.!!! WE love you!!! I will post pics as soon as I can get them off my mom's phone!! I love you all!!!!
hugs and kisses
