Dearest Butterflies,

Hello loves! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a journal entry. My apologies; been so busy lately. Just wanted to send you guys a quick update!

As you’ve seen from my twitter updates… I’ve had a very fun but messy past couple of weeks getting slimed. Ohh, to be in the Nickelodeon family– never a dull moment, that’s for sure! I’m sure a lot of you guys have already know what I was a part of. Not really hard to “figure it out”. hehehehe. icon wink Slime and open hearts.

This week was pretty insane. Last Friday, we took my dad to the doctor and found out that he had a 90% blockage in the main artery of his heart. So this week has been spent with him at the hospital. He had open heart bypass surgery on Monday morning, and after a very scary and worrisome few hours, his doctor came out of the operating room to tell me and mom that the surgery was successful. He spent a couple days in the ICU, and they moved him to a normal room yesterday… And the best news of all? We’re going to pick him up from the hospital today! He’s coming home. icon smile Slime and open hearts. We’re so grateful that the surgery was successful. It was a very stressful few days, but we’re happy to report that dad is doing well and looking forward to coming home and eating non-hopsital food. (Seriously, why is hospital food always so gross?)

Aaaaand in other news, in the midst of all this craziness, I am now sick. So I am drinking tea and sucking throat lozenges as I type this journal entry. I feel like I got hit by a bus. And a train. And a car. At the same time. But it’s all good.

Before I go pick up dad, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone at St. Bernardine’s hospital for taking such good care of my dad. Dr. Malki and Dr. Ruiz, thank you for everything. You guys are incredible. We couldn’t have asked for better doctors or nurses to take care of him!

And to all the friends and family that called and texted constantly over the past few days to check up on dad & to make sure that mom & I were okay– thank you for all of your love, support, and prayers. It means more than you know. We love you guys.

Alright kiddos. I’m off to pick up dad. icon smile Slime and open hearts.

xoxo,

Ash
