3rd Blogoversary!!!

I'm Alive!!!!............ I'm still here!!!!
YEP!!!! I still exist on this Earth!!
Sorry for the long bloggy break...I had a family emergency!
I'll just tell you all in short....
On May24th I got a call from my mom ....my dad was rushed to the emergency.
Within few hours flew to my hometown with the kids!
On May 25th , my dad had a bypass heart surgery for the second time( he had one two & half years ago)
It was a tough one , it took way longer than usual...... after ten days he came back home!
After a day I had to rush him to the emergency again.... it was a case of heart failure!!
He again had to go for  ANGIOPLASTY....I really felt so bad for him, he was in so much pain!
We all were so worried! Poor my mom she is so sick herself( she needs Dialysis three times a week) and all the stress made it worst!
Unfortunately the procedure was only half successful!
Two more weeks of ICU...
Finally , Dad came back home now! 
He is on strong medications and the doctors are hoping he will be back to his normal acitivities after few months!
I hope everything works out fine...both my parents stay healthy!

And congrats on your 3rd bloggerversary! You have lighten up so brightly in the paper crafting world! May you continue to be bright and shiny! (Please leave me out for the draw as I have learned and received so much from you already)!! HUGS! PS: How could you even ask if we "dislike" anything you made!!? Silly question (LOL)!

I'm so sorry to hear about your parents, Piali. I hope your dad get well soon.

Congrats on 3rd blog anniversary!! I'm looking forward to seeing your layout!

Joan V said...

Hi Piali, wow, you must be stressed to the MAX. It sounds like you don't live near your parents. That must be so hard, especially when there are illnesses. I hope they both are feeling better soon.
I recently inherited my Mother in Law (Father in law died in Dec 2011)in March and she has since been in the hospital twice and then broke her hip. Life does get stressful. I haven't read blogs or made any cards for 3 months. I finally had time to read a few of my fav blogs today.

Congrats on your 3 yr blogoversary. Wow, time flies.

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

Congrat's on your blogaversary! Sounds like you have been very busy and I hope both your folks stay home and healthy this time. I would love to see more of your creations when you have time.

On a lighter note, congrats on 3 years. It is a fun journey, at least it has been so far for me too.

I am so happy to have met you on Facebook and glad you can devote more time to your blog now that your family has a little more stability!
