Tomorrow is the big day! Dennis is having his surgery at 10:15 in the morning. By this time tomorrow night, his stomach will no longer be 80% up into his chest. It won't be upside down any longer. We are praying that he will be able to have it done laproscopically. If so, he'll be home in about 3 days. If not, he will be in the hospital for 7 or 8 days. He is not looking forward to pureed food for a few weeks or the discomfort of recovery but he is grateful that he has a great surgeon and he will be in good hands.

All prayers and good thoughts are welcome and appreciated!!!

The McCain team is bashing Sarah Palin and making her the scapegoat for losing the election. I was just waiting for this to happen. They just cannot accept responsibility for all the mistakes the campaign made ~ they have to play the blame game.

CNN has a video by Campbell Brown addressing the situation. It's very honest and fair.

Personally, I didn't think Mrs. Palin had the experience needed to be vice president but I like her spunk and her spirit. She was used by the Republicans to pull in female voters who would have voted for Hillary Clinton if she had been running. She was a 'token' VP candidate in McCain's attempt to manipulate voters. It's just not right to throw her to the wolves now. Shame on them. Here's the link to the video. I hope it works. If not, go to and click on Campbell Brown's video.

A friend of mine had a similar surgery a while back and recovered very well from it. It definitely wasn't overnight, but all was well, so I'm sure Dennis will be well, too.

I'll be keeping Dennis in my prayers.

I have an entry half written that I've titled "The Blame Game". ::sigh::

Take care of yourself and Dennis too!
