Hi everyone. Sorry for the silence but life has thrown me another one of it's left hooks. On August 10th my father was brought from Florida to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland for a second opinion on some liver function tests. On the 11th he was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cirrhosis. Never a drinker, they suspect it's due to the fact that he's been a (not very careful IMHO) diabetic for 50 years.
On Monday he is seeing a specialist who has researched his condition and as he is too old for a transplant (80), hopefully can help with some of his symptoms. So the last week has been spent traveling back and forth between my home in PA and the hospital in MD and narry a workout until yesterday when I discovered I've had enough of LM Pump for now.
Really, with barbells the workouts are always just more of the same and I found myself craving more variety and the comfort of old friends so I popped in Cathe's Circuit Blast yesterday and it felt good to be home. This morning I did Cardio Supersets and it was just what I needed
Not to say that I"m never going to do Les Mills Pump again, just not as a program. I'll throw them into my rotations as an option.
So we are heading back down to Hopkins tomorrow evening and staying in Maryland until Tuesday so if I'm not on, you know why. I've not given up the fight, I'm just helping someone else with theirs.
