It's been a couple days since i've posted last, i've mostly been stressing about the current situation back at home. However, I do have some good news. The doctors decided to break the two arteries up into two seperate surgeries. The first surgery on the more clogged artery was yesterday at around 2 pm (New Orleans time) and it was a success. I don't know too many details, my mom hadn't been able to talk to the doctor before I went to sleep here, but she did confirm that Granny was out of surgery and coming out of anesthesia. Color me relieved. I am not sure when the next surgrry will take place, but the fact of the matter is that Granny now has a better blood flow to her brain which will, in turn, make a more healthy Granny.
I have been trying to look on the bright side of things while i'm here. I have been trying to get out as much as possible to keep my mind off the situation at home, although it should be a little easier to do so now that one of the surgeries is complete. I received a B on my first photo critique. I was somewhat upset with that grade, but I have to tell myself that I am in intermidiate photo now, and Ariya is just trying to push me harder in order for me to become a better photographer.
I have been staying in the city a lot lately, since I got back from Poland. I will probably stay in the city limits until I leave the country just because there is an enormous amount of stuff to do here. I will never get to visit everything I want, however, staying in the city of Prague will assure me that I get to visit the majority of it.
I miss everyone at home dearly; I can't wait to get back and hang out with everybody. I love Prague, but nothing is like home. I will say, however, that if all of you back at home were here with Polly and I, our time here would be so much better. Not knowing many people leaves Polly and I exploring by ourselves, which isn't a bad thing, but we know that a lot of you would love it here.
It's a pain in the butt to try and upload photos to this blog site, so please check my flickr site (www.flickr.com/photos/jeremyrsmith) regularly. I update it pretty often.
Don't worry everyone! We'll be home in 11 days! Get ready!
