Well busy weekend, dads 89th birthday was yesterday. Didn't get any pics of the generations as I wanted as the kids were busy and dad wouldn't have been able to have them sit on him or anything. Eva played shy when we all went for brunch, yes all 9 of us!! but once we got back to dads apartment ( we couldn't be upstairs with all the wood and reno ) she was fine. She sang and hugged dad and when they were leaving, she ran back and said happy birthday! lol Thomas was good too but more into seeing what he could look at and figure out. Then we got a great pic of him but have to get it off the email as dil took it. he has a newsboy type cap on from dd hubby and was so cute.
Dad is getting stronger, still tires and not sleeping but at least I don't feel as nervous to leave him. He did fall first thing yesterday morning and skinned his knee and made his arm and elbow all thin skin red bruise. But was okay once I answered the phone to go down. I didn't hear it ring first time.
Today I have a dr appointment with my GP, not sure what he will do as my arm is bad but I can't get any tests done etc. cos he books them and if it is next month I wont be going too far. Oh well will still see whats up, and also as a few questions about dad without dad around. also have to get one refill for hubby. I also have some things I still want done but that's okay. Tomorrow dd and I are going to Micheals and also wherever else I figure. lol I am going to get mil gift cert. and son in laws gift and whatever else. Hubby will work on reno which........
He has the toilet plumbing in and done, the sink plumbing dry fitted and vent too. now to make the floor area, and then put the wall in for the closet. Then he has to get the rest of plumbing done. He worked 4 hrs on Friday and about the same on sat. took him way longer and didn't get as much as thought done but who cares he is doing it. I said you kow if I have to I will just have to use dads chair... he said there will be a toilet, and walls I promise. lol
Well hear him rumbling about and I have to get ready for dr soon. Hope all are well and do know that I appreciate every single comment, note, goodie and reply. Just seems it has been so hectic that I haven't gotten any time to reply to everyone. Love you all and wouldn't still be here if I didn't have spark friends.

11pm just finished watching the Voice. and have to get to bed. Dad had CT scan and xray and his lung isn't expanding enough and if they put the talc in it will sink to the bottom and just coagulate like cement. Not a good thing obviously. So they are going to insert a more permanent tube and have a drain at the end.... was their 2nd choice but that's what they can do. Hoping it works and it stays working once he is home...
I got my date for pre op stuff, Nov 27th good as I go to GP 24th Dad goes to GP 26th and hopefully nothing else has to be done that day. I have to have pre admission, bld. work, xray and physio and also visit with nurse. So be there for 2 hrs +. glad to know when that was - good thing I phoned to ask as it wasn't scheduled! whew.
Okay off to bed. hope I sleep well been waking with such pain in my shoulder bicep area. Need a good nights sleep tonight. getting worn, cant have that now!

Well am tired today, sore, and hurting. My neck shoulder bicep area is worse and I haven't a clue why. Oh well I go to the dr end month, not that it really matters as I wont be running to any other apointments for while after anyway.
Went over to see dad, looks okay, tad SOB but not as bad, opps sorry short of breath! LOl forgot my medical isn't what everyone knows. He didn't get the powder in but they will probably do it tomorrow depending on his xray. Hope so for his sake, he wants out, and we would rather him home and have to watch and keep him comfy than over there. But don't think they will rush him out.
Went down to the cafeteria and while there took picture of the fish for dad, as he used to have fish tanks. and then wanted to share the spark board I saw..
thought that was pretty cool!!!
and for fish lovers
they were very big fish!!
Well think I will go read for a bit. arm/neck is bothering me a lot. so will go do heat.
My knees were bad again today but oh well, that will get better in 2 months! I know that the first month -2 are bad pain but thinking that I wont feel the top of my knee fall over the bottom and catch much longer!!!
