A trip to the Grand Canyon ain't so grand

Well, just a hodge-podge of info tonight -- first, the title of this blog is referring to Bruce's doomed trip to the Canyon...he has never seen it, so he planned to take advantage of a free afternoon today to drive out there. Not very far into the four-hour trip, however, his rental car got a flat tire. By the time he finished monkeying around with it, he wouldn't have had much daylight at the Canyon, so he scrapped it and went back to his hotel. I am disappointed for him, although if one segment of his travel had to be canceled, I'm glad it was today's trip to the Canyon and not tomorrow's trip back home!

My cardiologist appt went well today. A nice surprise was that the timing worked out for my parents to meet us at the hospital, where we all parked on the top level of the parking garage and they played with the kids while I had a (peaceful!) appt. To summarize the appt, the arrythmia and abnormal EKG do not appear to be caused by anything that requires further intervention -- it's just 'one of those things'. I have to finish out my month with the heart monitor and then I will see the cardiologist annually to make sure nothing untoward develops.

Grandma 'Nota made John Deere quilts for each of the kids, and they were so excited! I'm sure they'll sleep better than ever before underneath their own yellow and green!

That's such a bummer that Bruce didn't get to see the Grand Canyon! Maybe you can all take a trip out there together sometime.

So is this the first full month that you didn't have an "episode"? Maybe you could wear it a little longer, altho I'm sure you're probably sick of it by now!?
