Wanted to upate with another entry prior to this one…but my grandpa (on my dad’s side) was sent to the hospital last night. My grandparents went on a Seniors’ trip with the church and my grandpa fell when a little kid zipped by and startled him during dinner at a buffet restaurant. My dad, uncle, my cousin, and my aunt brought him to the emergency room and waited for the x-rays to be done.
He stayed overnight in the hospital and is still awaiting the surgeon today to see when he will have his surgery for his leg/hip area. Please pray for patience, for wisdom of the doctors and nurses that are taking care of him, and for his pain to be minimalized. This makes me feel so helpless and worrisome cause I can’t go to visit!
As for me, I had my CT Scan on Monday Night and had a nice dinner afterwards to celebrate a good friends’ birthday 🙂 Prior to the Scan, I was given this white/semi-opaque/thick/orange-tasting liquid to drink throughout the day. It wasn’t great tasting, but anything beats Chinese Medicine! (…I found a “bug-looking” head in the remainders of the medicine yesterday… and I found out it was a scorpion head! So… eat that! Andrew Zimmerman… I think I’m ready for his Bizarre Foods Show on Food Network).
I also had another MugaScan & EKG test this morning at TGH. Thank the Lord that he continues to answer prayers when I ask for courage when it comes to needles & injections. Although I can tolerate them… I find I can never really get “used” to them…
So… it’s “poke-free” until next Friday when I get my blood test in preparation for Round 4 the Monday after Father’s Day!
On a side note… Ike & I have a wedding cake! 🙂 I went to Select Bakery with my mom on Friday to talk with Costa about the cake. I love his bakery & pastry shop, because it’s full of such beautiful, yummy, and wonderful varieties of Greek Pastries (especially the soft almond cookies!) I also love it because of the local community that the shop serves. It’ puts a smile on my face to see grandmas and grandpas come and enjoy a date or coffee while reading their newspapers or chatting 🙂
At first, Ike & I thought of just renting a styrofoam cake. I know, unedible… but we weren’t too serious about cakes. Somehow, our later idea of a simple 2-tier cake is now a 3-tier cake! haha… oh dear! But it’s simple & it’s strawberry shortcake flavoured (which is Ike’s favourite!) What was an even MORE wonderful surprise was that it was already paid for when I asked Costa for the price!!!!!!!! ALLEN YE, we know it’s you!!! haha… Thanks Biu Gor 🙂 We are so touched by your generosity & love for your family & friends. Thanks to Costa too (and Nick!) Have a great trip out west!
