Jasper Speaks:

My mom had her procedure on Friday. They drilled a hole into her heart and placed two stints in it. She did well. The long term prognosis is unclear. A part of her heart is dead. One of the blockages was 100%. The other was 70%. She may need another procedure a bit later. They hope to treat the other issue with medicine.

I can't believe we are so close to Christmas day! Kendra and I watched our favorite Christmas movie together tonight. It is called "All I Want For Christmas". It is a pretty cheesy 90's movie but we quote it all year round. "You have to say it louder, he has tiny, tiny ears"! I am glad that the first semester is over. I get very excited at Christmas Break! Aaron will be here in like 8 days! Woot!

My mom is a little better. They have moved her to a step down sort of room outof the CICU. She seemed to be in better spirits today. She will not have the catherization anytime soon. Please do be praying as she will have a medicine induced stress test tomorrow. That is a little scary but we know who is in control. Her room has a LOVELY view of Forest Park. It sits just a little off of Steinberg Rink. Here is a picture from what she can see out her window. This picture was taken from the park and the building in the pic is the hospital. I didn't take it. I just found the picture online and it really is taken from what she can see from her window. It is like you were a person standing in the park and trying to take a picture of her room. I couldn't get the larger sized ones to download. :(





I have two finals left to give and then Christmas break is upon us. That is a good thing!

Here are a couple of good Huckabee sites for today:

So, my mom is still not strong enough to have the Cardiac cath. She hasn't been able to get her kidney function to all it needs to be and she is now anemic. They were giving her blood today. She was a sleep most of the time I was there. Now the cath is scheduled for Thursday. We'll see. I did read an interesting article on Mike Huckabee in Newsweek while I was in the waiting room. He was the cover story. Of course towards the end they bashed him a bit but I must say the more I read the more I like him!

My last zero of the semester was today. So now I don't have to be at school at 7:00 AM instead of 6:15. Sleeping in! How sad is that? But I have fallen asleep in my chair during my plan period for the past two days.






Thanks for your many well wishes and prayers. We appreciate it.

Some of you know that my mom is in the hospital. She has been in and out of them for years. She had a heart attack this time. She just isn't herself. That is hard. I wish school was out so I wouldn't have to worry about finals and such. I would appreciate your prayers as we see what God has in store. Here is some fun:
