Do you ever dream your wife tries to give herself heart surgery and then you get chased by a gang?
I woke up so grateful today…
I had this dream last night where Elyse had something wrong with her heart, like literally a valve problem or something, and she thought it was a good idea to save the money and try to do it herself. So, she cut herself open and it was messy, but she oddly didn’t feel any pain or faint. But it turned out that she couldn’t figure out how to fix it…
I was supremely frustrated by her being stubborn and doing it herself, and now she couldn’t stitch herself up because we didn’t have any supplies. I tried calling 911 but my iPhone kept on messing up.
So I yelled at her. And I yelled loud at her, because I was angry and scared. And we were out on the porch in the middle of the day, so the neighbors were watching.
And the neighbors were members of the gang, “The Crips”.
And they weren’t about to stand for some guy yelling at his wife like that, so they started to chase me, and the rest of the dream was me running from the gang, all the while terrified that Elyse wasn’t OK by herself. And the Crips caught me and tortured me, but were more so just keeping me away from Elyse, which was worse.
And then I woke up when Elyse was bringing Indee back in from a walk.
And I woke up so grateful today…

so my cardiologist said i couldn’t lift more than 25 pounds when i work out because he doesn’t want me to strain my bovine valve, and i forgot. so today i went to the gym with my dad and was lifting somewhere within the 30/35 range for most machines, and he told my mom because he was proud or whatever.. and now she’s really mad.
this may seem insignificant to everyone who reads this, but i just wanna be normal. why can’t i lift what i what and do what i want? i’m so sick of people telling me what i can and can’t do. i had heart surgery one year, one month, and 16 days ago. it’s not gonna kill me if i push myself to be as fit as i used to be.
This morning, I wrote a post about my mom possibly having to have heart surgery. Five minutes later, I wrote a post aout how I got a free 4 day pass to Comic Con. Guess which one got more notes?
Now that’s messed up. But that’s okay, because all 4 of the notes for the heart surgery post meant so much to me. I can’t help but read them over and over again. But, I understand why comic con got more notes. The heart surgery post was so personal that my followers didn’t really know how to respond to that. Comic con, however, everyone can relate to, or at least can respond to it easily.
But is it also because of the length of the post? My heart surgery post is a few paragraphs long. Comic con only lasted for one or two lines. Are you followers just lazy to not read such a long post? Or is it really that you guys don’t know how to respond?
Can I ask something from you guys? Next time, when I post a really long passage, and if you really do read it from beginning to end, like it.
The Heart of the Matter
Two years ago today, my five-month-old daughter underwent open-heart surgery at Children’s Hospital to repair two holes she was born with between her left and right ventricles and her left and right atriums. Today, she is 100 percent healed and her cardiologist told us, “Her heart is beautiful.” Of course, we didn’t need a cardiologist to tell us that.
my mom's okay!!!
It turns out that she’s always had the problem with her heart her whole life, but it’s not life-threatening. But apparantly the problem’s genetic…..lovely.
So that means no more heart surgeries :]]
She walks like Mulan’s father without his cane though >.> and I’m stuck doing all her chores until she can move fluently again T-T
