Update on Dad

For those of you not checking Caring Bridge first, I apologize.  I decided to post there first and I haven’t been here since.  No internet at the hospital after surgery waiting room.

Dad is having a rough time.  His heart issues have come back into play and he is on the second floor now, where they are monitoring his heart 24/7.  Has a tube down his nose/throat to suction out his stomach due to bowel obstruction.  Atrial fibrillation back in the picture and now they’re concerned about pulmonary embollism (not sure of spelling).

No word yet from pathology, but the kidney surgery itself went very well.  Will post again when we know more from pathology.

Prayers are appreciated.

Hugs all around,

Grunge Chic Journals on Etsy – 3 New Ones

Just a note to let anyone who might be interested, I did get the three new Grunge Chic Journals listed today on my Etsy shop.  I’m happy with the way they look, and hoping for the best.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/borchisko

With that behind me, housework, housework, and oh yeah, more housework.

Tuesday is “pre-admit” day for Dad to get his blood typed and held for the surgery on Wednesday.  Monday will be the last “open” day, so I gotta keep going.

Looking forward to seeing family again.

Hugs all around,

New Grunge Journals Coming This Weekend!!

I did it….I actually finished three Grunge journals!  My “goal” was to get them finished and on Etsy by the end of the weekend.  Yay, me!!

These Grunge journals are a little different.  I’m calling them Grunge Chic Journals.  The outside is Grunge style but the inside pages reflect a little grunge and a little class at the same time.  Looks cool together, I think.   All I need to do now is photograph them and list them, which will happen tomorrow morning. 

We have to get started on getting the house ready for the surgery, people arriving, coming/going, etc.  I’ve been the hold up with the journals.  Tomorrow by this time I will likely feeling twice as bad as I do now, a scary thought!  I love creating the journals but it’s hard on me physically.  No more three at a time…journals will now come in pairs.  LOL 

Check them out in my shop, hopefully before noon tomorrow.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/borchisko

Dad’s Surgery Scheduled

I just talked with the assistant at the surgeon’s office.  Surgery is scheduled for October 13th.  Dad will go to be admitted at 10:30 and surgery will be at 12:20 p.m.  Two surgeons, like I said before.  We got lucky the second guy was available on the first date – YAY.  We’re in a hurry to get this thing out of his body and get on with his life.

Any questions from anyone, just email me.  It’s easier on my physically to email rather than talk on the phone.  I can also be texted at 805-320-4313, but I prefer email.  Happy to answer any and all questions from  you all.

Oh, we did get one bit of good news when we had that last appt.  Can’t remember if I mentioned it.  He is guessing at stage 1 or 2 for now….which is definitely good….so far.

Thanks for your love, prayers and thoughts.  We love and appreciate you all.

Etsy Shop Open

Well, it took a lot of work, but I’m almost finished putting all 6 of my journals up on the shop.  It’s been hotter than can be here today (for here….for me, anyway).  High of 80 outside, maybe a little higher, and 80 inside as well.  Almost all of the fans are on full blast, and working with this laptop on my lap has been a real challenge for me.

We’re hoping to hear something early this week about scheduling Dad’s surgery, but with the “Mother-May-I” ways of Dad’s insurance, who knows.  Will literally keep you posted.  Check in here first, as there will likely just be links on the other two sites.

Asian Funky Blue/Purple Journal

This Journal reminds me of a line from “Pretty Woman” where the hotel manager says “Something that beautiful must be difficult to let go of.”  I wanted to show this beautiful journal that, yes, will be on Etsy very soon.

Grunge Graphic Journal

This is one of my Grunge Cover Journals….I will have two of these on Etsy.
