LAALI: Chap 1.7 - The blog that never was...days that you hate

Living alone and loving it - goal to stay on track through stress and cafeteria temptations

I just wrote a long blog and poured out my soul and it disappeared. Par for the day.
My father is back in the hospital after being found this morning unresponsive beside the side of the bed. His PICC line is infected.

The non existent blogs highlighted the increase complications in his care and my concerns for my mother trying to keep up with it - for her health. Then my own self irate-ness over the fact that I feel I'm drawing back emotionally from his situation. He has lived for over 25 years rolling from on major health issue to another - brain tumor, heart attacks, prostrate cancer, bladder cancer. Oh yea it is your right to keep smoking, but it is your right to get all this crap at the end too. I hate those nasty sticks and all the people that keep the government funds rolling into growing tobacco. But I get off track. So this is going to be a long day.

I've fed and giving meds to the dogs I'm sitting, and now need to get a solid breakfast so I can resist any food I can't log at the cafeteria. I know we will spend a lot of time there waiting between doctor's reports.

This was going to be my planned marathon exercise day...I wanted to get in at least four hours. Can this day be over already? Rain check for the exercise until tomorrow.

    I'm so very sorry to hear about your dad. I really hope that he is okay. I definitely understand your frustration. My husband smokes (not in the house or around me), but his Grandpa died from cancer, his aunt died from cancer, his dad has cancer, and I've had cancer. Granted, only one of those was lung cancer, but still. . . I'm sending you lots and lots of emoticon ! Be kind to yourself and don't give up on marathon training!
