Just wanted to drop by and say I'm still around. The last two weeks have been complete havoc. My dad was in the hospital after having a fall at home (he's ok though) but from the hospital, he was discharged to assisted living. I actually work at the facility he moved to and he's doing quite well. Due to his dementia progressing, we decided going back home was no longer the safest, best option for him. And he's been amazingly accepting of this whole process, thankfully! Its a good place for him and finally I have some peace of mind.
It was a stressful time while he was hospitalized and the whole moving process apparently took its toll on me. By the end of last week, as my dad was settling into the assisted living community, I got hit with a terrible sinus infection. I'm still on the mend, but unfortunately, with all that going on, I haven't had much chance to participate on Spark as I would like. Of course, I haven't worked out much in these last two weeks and its driving me NUTS!! I finally went back to work today after being out sick since Monday. I'm hoping to make it back to the gym by the weekend. Amazingly, I lost another two pounds. Probably because with this stupid sinus infection, I can't taste or smell anything and have had no appetite!
Hope things are well for my Spark friends and I look forward to reconnecting very soon.
