Hey Guys, Hubby is still doing well. Better each day. I am so grateful, so excited, and SO looking forward to this amazing trip we are about to go on.

All during the time my mom lived with us, I used to talk about and fantasize about taking a trip to Italy for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. My mom used to say... "just go NOW!...while you feel healthy and well" - unbeknownst to me, my Mom ... made my hubby promise her... that just in case she wasn't alive at my 50th Birthday... he would surprise me and give me a trip to Italy (both from her and him).

She died last year about 13months ago... and she had him go out and get her a birthday card that was all mushy and lovey... so she could sign it (she couldn't write much after her strokes). Most beautiful chicken scratch ever!!!!!

It took me a week just to be able to speak about it (after he gave it to me.) And he didn't give it to me on my B-day... if you remember, my cousin gave me a girl's trip w/ a cruise to Mexico. Which I had a blast, and I assumed HE had a part in. My kids took me out to dinner and that was awesome. I seriously had no idea he had something ELSE up his sleeve.

So after I had been home for almost two weeks after my birthday week trip south... and there was this moment that I teared up as we were reminiscing about my Mom w/ the kids... he said he had something he wanted to show me on the computer.

He started a slide show that was 30+ slides of our lives together, places we've been, pics of the kids... they each had clues written on them in some kind of Powerpoint slideshow thing... it was FREAKIN' AMAZING!

Mind you this is all from a man I didn't think had an 'emotional' bone in his body!!!!!!!!!! (ever logical, yes!~emotional...not so much!)

By the end of the slide show...I was balling - and when that final slide said we were going to the Amalfi Coast in Italy...Love, Hubby and YiaYia (which is what we called my Mom - means Grammie in Greek) - I turned and looked at him ... and he handed me a card, w/ her handwriting and my Name on the outside.

OMG I thought I was going to pass out.

One of the most beautiful moments of my life.

So I couldn't be more grateful for every prayer said, every positive energy... whatever... to see hubby feeling back to himself and we are definitely going.. priceless!

Thanks Mom... you are the best!

Today is hubby's first day back at work (in 11 days), so I am praying he does well today. He's only been on two tylenol for discomfort, as needed, and seems to be doing ok.

This type of illness is so random. And the more I read, it's sooooo common. Some of it might be genetics - but in large part they think years of being out of shape, and eating a processed foods kind of diet puts too much 'strain' on your lower intestine/colon.

Anyway - this attack is just a symptom of a condition that has been inside him for quite some time. And who knows IF or WHEN it could happen again.

Overall, he's to get on a High Fiber Way of Eating, Drink plenty of fluids (mainly water) and get some weight off and start exercising regularly.

Sounds like advice he was given 5 years ago from someone special :) !!

Still, seeing him in that kind of pain - TERRIBLE. Let's just focus on keeping him well, and following through with the above to do list, and praying that keeps him from having another attack.

Thanks for all your love and support through this. Much Appreciated.

Will keep you posted on how his work week goes... We have until Sat before Departure to make a decision.

Much Love.
