Now after four days in the hospital we are just watching TV and waiting to see if he gets to go home today or tomorrow. The Dr also came in this evening and again explained to us that the blockage is called the widow maker because there is usually no symptoms ....then major heart attack. We have been given a second chance he explained and he was taking extra time to make sure we understood , change or he will be a " frequent flier". Life is so good and to be given a second chance....we feel so blessed, blessed that everything feel into place like it did and blessed that we have more time together! Jim and I have been together 32 years and if I have my way it will be another 32 years at the least! :)

Life has been going so good the past couple months we just got a stressful bill paid off and now its just the two left.....life is finally looking up.....Never think at 48 and 50 of a major health problem occurring, I just thank God it happened when it did! Jim (hubby) works in a lot of areas that are really in the boonies building structures a lot of times its in the middle of corn fields, no hospitals near......Jim came home Saturday stopped by our grandsons birthday party then went home to get some hunting in before dark. He was not home a half hour when he comes walking in the house sweating with both arms hurting and also under his tongue. We went straight to the hospital they took him right back, treated him as a heart attack, shipped him to another hospital and they did a cardiac cath, the main artery that feeds the bottom of the heart was over 90 percent blocked so two stints were put a small space apart in that artery. The Dr knows there was heart damage because of the numbers in his blood but he could not see damage during the cardiac cath because of the fast acting people in the ER :)

Hubby was home for the weekend with Monday off also, (dentist appointment, he is scheduled for a root canal). We did get a lot of work accomplished in only two days with almost 2/3 mile long and 8 foot wide area cleared of trees and brush so I can drive the Polaris along that part of fence, makes it a lot easier when repairs are needed. :)
We did find some spots in the fence along the way that we repaired, this is going to make my life easier! I can't wait until we get all the fence accessible so I can drive around it, now only about 2 2/3 miles of fence to clear....
It looks so nice cleared, hubby is way down there (can just him) he cut and I cleared :).
Love the pattern on the toad stool I found along the way
Bonus we found some fairly good sized trees that had to be cut for the driving trail soooo now I just have to drive up there and load the cut wood on the Polaris and stack in the wood shed.
Some trees had been down for a while (this one landed in the fork looks like a couple years ago so I have some green and some dry wood :)
Hubby taking a well earned break.....I keep telling him one of these days he may actually want to relax and do nothing on a day off......but he says this is very relaxing :)
