hanging out at norton

we spent a lot of time at norton hospital on saturday. i'm so thankful pap's surgery was then. the waiting room was pretty much empty except for us, which was nice. nobody had to make special work arrangements, which was good for the working.

saturday was quite a day, but we made the best of what we thought would be 9 stress filled hours during pap's surgery at norton.
lots of naps were attempted

lots of coffee
lots of good conversation,
lots of talking on the phone.

surprisingly lots of laughter. i think that's what gets us through.
after word that the tumor was removed, us rotten grandkids went and ate some good food down on 4th street with a good drink too.

these pictures make the day look like we were having a blast, but it was actually pretty stressful. i'm so thankful that it turned out the way it did. Thank you everyone for your thoughts & prayers.
the doctor finished up the surgery in great time & did a wonderful job on our pap.

It's nice seeing him eating already.
I'm sure it was a hard time for all of you.
He is very lucky to have such a wonderful family as you are.
I was thinking of you and your papaw.
Lots of love
