Wow, what a day. My dad woke up this morning with horrible stomach pains that just got worse and worse, and finally at 1pm my mom convinced him to go to the ER. They did an x-ray and a CAT-scan, and found a white spot on the scan that showed there was a baseball-sized mass on his small intestine. They took him into surgery, and apparently there's some little pouch on the small intestine, this useless thing, like an appendix? Anyway, it had gotten obstructed and the tissue had started to die, so they were able to go in with the little scope (laproscopy? something, you know) and cut it off and stitch it right up. As surgeries are concerned, fairly straightforward, but still.

So he'll be in the hospital for at least three days or so for observation, and the doctor recommended he take a month off work, since his job includes lifting heavy things. My poor grandpa, who had come out for barbeque at 5pm, ended up having to sit at the hospital for five hours; after my dad came out of surgery and recovery and we got to talk to him, my grandpa was like, it's IHOP time.

It's been a long day.

We went over to the nearby furniture and electronics store after dinner, to walk around and get out of the house. I found the most beautiful pub table, about four foot square, with blue-green slate in the top. For $99. I want it SO MUCH, but we have absolutely no where to keep such a thing, and like, my heart hurts right now, guys. It is literally absolutely the exact style I like, the kind of furniture I want some day, when I'm not at home anymore, and it's NINETY NINE FRAKKING DOLLARS.

Sigh.

Oh, BTW, Marshall moved up to his KU dorm on Sunday. In other news, it's been a lovely, peaceful four days around here.

Icons up to Aubrey! I'm including the small batch I made last year when my aborted attempt to rewatch the whole show got me all the way up to Conduit.

They're finished! I finally finished! I have no idea why I ended up making so many, other than that I scrolled through my caps folders to pick out likely icons and found a lot (rather than looking for a specific cap, which is what I usually do). I would welcome any feedback, positive or constructive, and obviously everyone's welcome to any if they like.
