She's having surgery on Wednesday to have stents put in two blocked carotid arteries leading in her neck. This is something that had to be postponed, of course, due to the accident last August. Now that she's recovered from most of those injuries, it's time. Supposedly, it's not a very invasive procedure and she'll be able to come home from the hospital the day after. Prayers appreciated - as always. Some friends have said this will help with the memory problems and confusion - better blood flow to the brain.
As for me, I took Exam #2 of 3 yesterday and I think I did pretty well considering the short amount of time I had to study. One more to go - June 12. I also have a paper to write for this course (Old Testmanet Prophets). Monday is a German holiday so I'm going to FOCUS and get as much of that done as possible. The other study work I can do in small bites, but for writing tasks, I like bigger blocks of time.
Eating has been off for the past couple of days. I gave myself a break from tracking and it's showing. Just too much going on with the exam and all the phone calls to the States concerning dparents. I need better strategies for handling those things! Being a long-distance caregiver can be tough.
