Busy day

Today my dad had a surgery to his oesophagus (slokdarm). It always causes a bit of stress when you have to wait, especially when it takes quite a long time before you hear if everything went well. He had the surgery around 1pm and was back to the ward at 4.15pm. Just 5 minutes before my mom arrived who couldn't stand to wait at home any longer. I went to see my dad this evening. He was still very sleepy due to the anaesthesia and morphine, but he was doing well. He has to stay in hospital for a few days. We don't know yet when he will be released.

This morning I went to Amsterdam to visit my former colleagues and spent almost 3 hours with them. Pretty strange to be in the office as a visitor. Had a cup of tea and a chat with some girls, and lunch with my manager. It was good to see him again. We worked together for more than 9 years and I still miss him from time to time.

No time to scrap today, so I will leave you with a picture of one of the photo swap layouts. Yvon got mine in the mail today, so I can now reveal the layout. Fortunately she was very happy with the result. I will get her layout on Saturday, so I have to be patient for another 2 days. I am really into Scenic Route lately. I just LOVE that brand. I am very curious to know what new lines they will introduce at CHA in July. Has anyone already seen a sneak peak?
