used my x-factor with coach nicoles videos with srength bands... to move more and use more of my body...
tracked my sodium for Awesome A team (nutrition), fitness, and drank my water...
Today I met with hospice for my dad... here is a pic of him with great-grandson Adam
Dad is doing OK, Hospice is a wonderful service! They are working with us to help dad maintain his COPD, as he is end stage COPD, he is never going to get better.
A month ago, I encouraged dad to enter a nursing home, he is still very cognitive, and did not meet their requirements, however, they got hospice involved so he can stay. He might still be discharged in a week - I will not know until then.
Can I just say emotionally it has been a roller coaster!!
As one of dad's main caretakers, I know I have made good sound decisions for his care, as his daughter - I JUST WANT my dad home!
I will be done with school next Thurs - June 20th for 8 short weeks!
I have so much on my plate - but hope to sqeeze in a four day vacation with Don to go see his side of our family.
I am going to make it a priority to take doughnuts and tea to share with dad once a week! (doughnuts?! YES I know they are not part of my healthy nutritional plan - I will work the calories and JUNK into my plan - it will make dad happy and I do not know how long he has left - heck he may just surprise us all!
At any rate - thanks for reading my bit of heartache!
Keep on Sparking!
God Bless you!
