P-pa and I returned home Tuesday following a 6-day stay at Baptist (oops, St. Thomas Midtown) Hospital. He went under the knife twice for back surgery.

SHE'S HERE! Amaieah Grace Morrison arrived Thursday morning the 28th at Harton Regional Medical Center in Tullahoma. She weighed in at 8 lbs., 9 oz and was 20 inches in length.
