Thank You

Thanks for all the love, support, emails, comments, and phone calls. They help.

I’ve just returned from visiting Dad again this evening. He is so tired. And sore. And puffy. And mopey. They have tubes feeding into his carotid artery, with a bunch of apparatus taped to his cheek, which is unbearably Borglike in appearance. He dozed off ten or so times during our short visit. We talked to the nurse, who says he is doing well. He’s mad about being kept up for an hour at a stretch several times a day. So he’s spunky, I guess. She says tomorrow they may take out the chest tubes: don’t ask about them, it’s too icky to discuss. Sometime I’ll write about Mom and how she’s handling all of this.

I’m so happy there is no strategy guide chapter sitting in my inbox because I honestly couldn’t face it now at 9:41 p.m., no matter how much the client jumps up and down or how loudly he begs. I am feeling licked for today.

    I’m very very proud of you for being so strong and hanging in there with your dad. I’m really glad that he came out okay and now he will experience the adventure of healing. You are an amazing wealth of strength, keep the positivity up and everything will go by faster than you can realize. Tate and I are sending you lots of love tonight.

    Yay, glad he’s doing OK. Yeah, he’s gonna be loopy and odd and maybe a little up then down for a decent and possibly worrisome while.
