Sam Strikes Again....

This time was different, though.

It was MY heart.

I just got him out of the bath tub, all nice and snuggly warm.

Wrapped in a towel on my bed, he layed there looking so sweet.

I leaned over and kissed him on his cheek and point blank asked him:

"Are you my ANGEL ?"

First, his eyes kind of darted back and forth, as if he was debating
whether or not I deserved to witness this rare glimpse into his soul.

Then he looked me straight in the eye..

He said, very plainly...."Yes"

Next, I asked:

"Did you come here to bless all our lives?"

He said, very plainly...."Yes"

I tried to stay calm.

I answered back telling him, thank you for coming to me.

I whisper this to him every night as I tuck him in bed.

Then as quickly as the miracle came and the veil was slightly lifted, he looked away and we were done.

He rarely pronounces words with the ending consonant. Usually just an approximation of the word.

Tonight I got a distinct....Y E SSSS !

For once....

I am speechless.

Took Sam to the Cardiologist last week.

Shoulda called ahead to issue a "Red Alert" status to the clinic letting them know Sam was preparing for battle.

I also shouldve called in some "back-up" forces for myself, as well !

Started off trying to get a chest x ray.

Finally got a wiggly portrait of his wire sutures from his heart surgery 7 yrs ago.

The xray tech was clearly special-forces; she got out her best tactile weapon to subdue the combatant:


Yup, Sam gave in. Put his hands in the air, the Tech snapped the picture!

The xray revealed that atleast 3 of the 5 or 6 wires that were placed during the surgery to hold his sternum together have come undone !

Betchya can guess when some of that happened .....

Yep, Cookie Cutter's battleground....I mean hair cut salon.

Sam's cardiologist is a seemingly nice enough guy. After trying to accomplish an EKG, a blood pressure check, and just a measly pulse-oxygen finger check thing....

The doc drew in a deep breath of defeat.

Then he said..."Well, Mrs. time Sam gets "put-under" for a procedure of some sort.. give us a call so we can show up and get our tests done on Mr. Sam !

What a Chicken !

"O'Sama" triumphs again!
