Thank you all for your well wishes over this past week. It was a very difficult time. I got the call last Monday that they were taking my best friend's mother off of life support. When I got there Tuesday morning, they had decided against that course of action, but there was still a lot to do. She has no arrangements in place for emergencies like this, so we spent a good deal of time at the courthouse, arranging for her apartment to be cleaned out, etc. Saturday night she went into cardiac arrest. They were able to bring her back, but I truly don't believe she'll be around much longer.
My best friend was an emotional wreck (understandably!) but even more so because he had a lot of pent up anger towards his mom that he's working on releasing. He's handling the whole situation so well, I have hopes he just might be a more mature person on the other side of this.... maybe :)
He sent me home yesterday so I could come to work today. I'm getting as much done as possible because I anticipate having to go down again in the next couple weeks to handle the funeral arrangements for him.
I will say that what food choices I made, I made wisely. I didn't eat NEARLY enough, and I didn't get a whole lot of exercise. I went walking with my sister one night, and we had a lot of walking around town, but nothing like I had planned on being able to do. I think it'll probably take me a few days to get back into the habit of real life again. I'll be as smart as possible until I'm back up to snuff.
