Kent's 2nd Surgery

Kent had his second cataract surgery on Tuesday.  There were a couple complications. Apparently, they weren't able to do an IV.  They gave him some other medication and it made him a little loopy.   I can also see a little bruising/bleeding around his L eye, which I didn't notice with the right.
All is well though!  Kent says he can see better and he's been cleared to drive.

    My dad has been sick for a couple weeks, (sore throat, conjestion, cough, headaches, etc.)  He's been to his doctor twice, and was told both times that it was viral and there wasn't much that could be done for it.  On Tuesday when my dad awoke, the whole right side of his face was paralyzed.   We were affraid that he'd had a stroke.  My mom gave him a baby aspirin and my sister drove my parents to the ER.
     My dad was diagnosed with Bells Palsy.   The hospital staff started an IV and gave him steroids and antivirals.  They also did a cat scan of his neck make certain there weren't any tumors.
    We were told that it's rare, but symptoms can be permanent.   Most of the time clear up between 2 weeks to 2 months.  Here are a few pics I took with my phone.

Celebrating Abby's Birthday!

Today was a fun, but busy day.  Instead of having a party this year, Abby wanted a "sluff" day.  I took her and Bree up to Fashion Place Mall .  We went to several stores and shopped to Abby's heart's desire!
On the way up, we stopped at Point Meadows and visited LouJean.

We also stopped at TOSH and visited my mom.  She was in quite a bit of pain.  :(
She will be discharged later this evening. 
We had lunch at Chuckorama in AF.  Then it was time to pick up Brody from school.

I took Brody and Bryson trick or treating.  The other kids went with friends.   We met up later and went trunk or treating at my parent's church.  Afterwords my dad fed us sime chilli.   
We sang Happy Birthday to Abby.  She blew out her candles and opened her presents.

Mom and LouJean need prayers

     My mom had a left total knee replacement today up at TOSH in Murray, Utah.  Brody and I went to visit her.  She seemed to be doing pretty well.  Her spirits were high. I'm sure tomorrow will be difficult when the epidural wears off.  Please keep her in your prayers.
     Please keep LouJean in your prayers too.  She is at Point Meadows in Lehi til Saturday for respite care.
