My sister, Melissa recently came into LA for a business trip. Kevin and I took her and her co-worker to the Santa Monica Pier and then did a little sightseeing. It was great to see her and realize how much of my personality (mainly my humor) is because I am an Archer. We live WAY too far away!
another sister, (well in spirit anyway) Liara, came for another visit. This time she was able to stay with us a couple of nights and she brought her friend noelle. It was nice to have to quality girl time at the beach. We walked around main st. in Huntington Beach and all the little vendors beside the pier. I bought a pretty necklace and they walked away with some cool souvenirs and gifts for friends back home. It was cool to show kevin that I am not the only one who knows all the lyrics to ice ice baby and all the salt n pepa songs. COME BACK SOON! You crazy nut! (wink)
I want to say thank you to everyone who has called or text me to see how my father is doing. The last I heard he thought he would be FINALLY get to go home today. Things turned out to be a lot more complicated than they originally thought and they had to do more surgery. I am so thankful that he had such wonderful doctors and nurses taking care of him! I know that everything has turned out the way it was supposed to. I know in my heart that our prayers have been answered. (Dad I know you have gone through so much. You are so strong. I love you and I hope to come and see you soon!)

I'm not quite sure who reads my little blog and out of those few people I don't know how many of you know my father or that he was diagnosed with an aortic anuerysm five years ago. Well recently it has enlarged for the first time in five years. The doctors told him that it was time to have surgery. SO...Tomorrow he goes in the hospital for a heart cath and then Thursday he is having open heart surgery. I would really appreciate it if you could keep my father in your thoughts and prayers. It is really hard for me being all the way across the country while he is going through this eventhough I know I would still feel as helpless in Florida.
I just want you to know that my thoughts will be with you. I love you and I'm so excited for this to be behind you so you can come and see us in California.
