Family Update

Just a quick update.

Last Sunday I had to take my husband, Dennis, to the Emerg and we discovered he had a brain aneurysm.

Today, he had surgery to clip the aneurysm and he is in stable condition. The next few weeks will be critical in his recovery but we are hopeful that he will make a full recovery as he has not suffered any neurological damage as a result of the surgery or the bleeding aneurysm.

As you can imagine ,the last few days have been trying and exhausting. This is the first night I am sleeping in my own bed since Saturday night and me and the boys are together in our home.

I know the last few days I have not eaten properly, nor enough and my blood sugar has probably been out of control. I am hoping now that Den is stable and on the road to recovery that I can recommit myself to my own health - especially in light of what we have just been through. The thought of putting my family through another health related crisis is strong motivation for me to get as healthy as possible.

Hug someone you love tonight because I now know that tomorrow isn't promised.


  1. Enz, I'm so sorry! That is really scary. Also, very weird that you are the 2nd blogger I read whose husband has had an aneurysm in the past 2 months. I thought it was really rare, but maybe not as much as I thought. I'm so glad that it sounds like there won't be any permanent damage. I will keep you guys in my prayers, and hope for a speedy and easy recovery for him.

  2. Wow, I'm so sorry you and your family are going through all this. Prayers are with you.
