UpDate On My Dad
Friday, June 01, 2012
As some of you know, this past week and a half has been a difficult, stressful time for me. My brother, I use this term losely, has been refusing to take proper care of my dad. A couple of months ago he had my dad's checking account so messed up that my dad had no money to live on so my DH and I got my dad all caught up and my dad took my brother off of his account and put my sister on all his accounts. I live in TN and my dad lives in FL, so it is not like I can run back and forth every day to help out. My sister and her daughter have been doing an awesome job! He went to the dr yesterday and he said my dad was having problems because his right foot was swollen, which we knew, and he put him on different meds to help take care of that. This way he is capable of getting up and doing the things he needs to do. He is also setting him up for some PT to help strengthen his legs and arms again. Other than that, he is in great shape for someone who will be 83 in 2 months. So now that I know he has been taken care of, I can rest a little easier and get back on track with all of my sparking, which I have been neglecting.
On the bright side, I had to go to the dr yesterday and she has not seen me since April 3rd and she was very impressed with my weight loss and the amount of inches I have lost. She said she really noticed a difference in me. That made me feel really good. I go back on the 26th of this month to have all my blood work done to see if there are any imporvements in certain areas. She said she was very optimistic about the results of those tests. I am hoping to have a little more weight off my then. I have almost reached 25 lbs lost and I am aiming for that or a little more would be nice when I see her again.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and I really do appreciate all of the kind words and thoughts and prayers from everyone on my last blog concerning my dad. I love
and all of my wonderful
