You had a super productive morning! Awesome job. 

 

And way to be the take charge family member and get everyone on the same page. I know that can be tough with news like that.

hi everyone thank you!

 

I am flying to florida today to see my dad and stepmom. he is doing ok in the hospital, but sometimes you need a little face time. his treatment options are a little unclear, and I think it will be a waiting game. I am much more comfortable with a waiting game than dramatic and fraught immediate action, though. I've had a really rough couple of days talking to all my relatives and my dad and my stepmom and trying to make sure people are calm and know what's going on. I ate so many deli sandwiches yesterday at a lunch meeting in the office. I have a terrible not great stomach feeling today, probably because of stress and nerves. I can't stop farting, that is probably due to deli sandwiches. There's another lunch and learn today so my opportunities for even more terrible food choices that will really enhance the experience of the people sitting near me on my flight this afternoon are boundless. ha!

 

so, I had intended to gym tomorrow, and possibly sat. that won't happen! I packed my running shoes and workout clothes and will make a point to get outside for a super fast run a couple of times. Also need to figure out the hanging! I didn't do it yesterday or today. maybe I can find something at my dad's condo or in the hospital to hang from. Worst case, I can put a towel over a door and hang a little like I did that time I was on the motorcycle trip and doing AMRAPs of hanging exercises.

 

* go to the gym.

nope, probs not. though I'll check and see if there's a planet fitness in pompano beach florida, though I am not renting a car.

* learn the pull-ups.

missed wednesday, thursday is iffy. find a door and a towel for the weekend

* track my food more carefully.

I did write down all my deli sandwiches. they put me over my calorie goal, though I did get a zillion calories from being at the gym.

* check in on my goals!  at least I've got that going for me!

You have enough on your plate to worry about exercise. If the opportunity presents itself then awesome, but family comes first and if you miss a few days it's OK too.

 

Yes. Not that you need us to tell you this, but you are prioritizing correctly. Hope everything's okay.

Glad you are able to go see your dad. It will be a big stress reliever to see and talk to him, and hopefully his dr too.

Friends, thank you so much for checking in and sending these sweet notes. I get them in my email and it was so nice to see them.

Dad is good! He has a new blockage in an already degraded artery, but the doctors feel the best thing to do is treat it with medicine and see how he does at home. He is able to get around and seems just like he did the last time I saw him a month or so ago. He has a diseased heart, so he can't do as much as a 68 year old in good health, but he does amazing considering what he's working with.

He was just moved from icu to a regular room, and they're trying to get him set to head home. My sister who lives in England is coming tomorrow and I will head home on Monday.

Oh good news on the plan.    It's good to just even get to that point- so much stress gets hung up in the 'waiting to figure things out' mode.   Glad that he's doing good with things and that he sounds every bit as go-getter as you!     Keeping prayers aimed your way chica.   

 

Make sure to give yourself a little bit of recovery and re-situate time once you get home.

hello darlings!

I am back from florida.

daddy is home from the hospital. he's got a lot of follow up visits in his future, but he's good for now.

my younger sister is with him and my stepmom (she flew in from london) and my aunt is making a visit today as well.

 

to quote my dad, he's no more sicker than he was 2 weeks ago, but now he knows more about it. he might be a candidate for a mechanical pump implant to help his heart work better - but there's some incremental changes he can make at home too, like reduced sodium, that will help out. basically the doctors would walk in and say: you don't look as sick as the man on your chart is. And that's good news!

 

so, I flew down, spent a few days helping out. my stepmom told me she was grateful I was there because she didn't realize how exhausted she was from being "on" all the time mentally. I ate a giant ice cream cone with my stepmom.

I went for a run for about 2 miles with stops for pokemon and pokestops and also some hangs at a park. I caught a LOT of magicarp and tenticools. I comforted my dad's little dog gracie, who was apparently bereft before I got there with him in the hospital.

I went to a church rummage sale and got 2 pairs of sunglasses and an amazing 4 yard piece of fabric with mountain goats on it for $6, and I went to a thrift store and bought a pants suit. Which I wore today for voting.

and I picked up my sister at the airport, and she dropped me off the next day.

 

ok so week 1 was kind of a weird bust? I'll get week 2 shaped up. give me a second. I'll get there.

I agree with Twilight.  Best photos ever.   They make me want to hug her! 

Your dad sounds a lot like you in being that he's awesome.   And kicking physical appearance butt despite a chart that would suggest he shouldn't.

Glad they have some options and that he's in good hands.  

You rock girl.

Week 1 was not a bust.  Week 1 was you being an amazing daughter and person!!!
