I wasn't scheduled for my second job this week, except for Monday. I asked to have that day off because my Dad is in the hospital. He is slowly fighting an infection that is in his gums (had a tooth pulled and he hasn't been healing so my Mom took him to the emergency room and from there they admitted him into the hospital)and because he is a severe diabetic he is very sick. I told my regular job what was happening in case I needed to leave in an emergency. I work early hours and have been able to get on the freeway most days without too much traffic and visit him in the late afternoons and evenings. Today I had quite a scare, my Mom called and said their insurance doesn't cover any more time in the hospital and they want to move him to a nursing facility. I applied for Medi Cal online for him and my Mom is taking the info to the hospital to show them. I hope this works in time before they try to transport him elsewhere. Needless to say I haven't gone to the gym at all or walked. I weighed in this morning and lost 2lbs. It's from eating small portions and low carb. I bought Betty Crocker food containers from Dollar Tree and they have measurements. I'm able to cottage cheese and other stuff for lunch and know how much I'm eating. The weekend is here and I have to work so I'll get some exercise from walking all over the store. It's been so hot this week. I really dislike this humidity. I hope all my spark friends are having nice weather.
