The Dr called today--not good news. I called my brother to tell him to book a ticket... He is in total denial. Thought if I had to know, he should (selfish of Me). Haven't yet told my Dad. I think the Dr shoukd be the one to tell him, nof me. CRAP, CRAP, CRAP.

I'm so sorry, CWS. The doctor should definitely be the one to give your dad news about his health. Hang in there.

I found this old Vista working. All going thoughts and prayers for you. Hang in there!

Crap, this old girl from 2005 still works! Woooo! Love lots from us!

It may sound insane but I'm really grateful for this old computer. I really didn't know if my old girl would work. We name our stuff like computers and cars, and her name is Purrl.

Purrl is up and running like mad. Cat has my new laptop, she deserves the best we can give her.

Our home is quiet now, I checked on everyone. Cat, Rina, Arlene, and Justin are all snoozing away.

I'm here just enjoying our home and looking at them, wonderful and safe.

I may not be perfect, but by God I'll do anything to make them happy.

Dawg, are you aware that the symptoms for heart attack are quite different for women than men? And the reason they kept you was probably because your lab work was still showing problems. Once I pulled an AMA, and the next day I found myself right back in the hospital. When they begged me to stay, they wanted to give me a pint of blood. A procedure that would have taken probably an hour or two. The next day when I was rushed back, I need two pints and then they gave me a third a few hours later. It seems I was really, really low on blood. No wonder I felt lousy. It was the lab work that alerted the doctors to a potential problem. I was just being difficult.

Fixin' to head into town and do a few errands. February and March are big birthday months for family and friends, so I need to buy cards and stamps. A quick trip through the ATM for cash to buy raffle tickets for my grandson's baseball team, stop at the store for milk and eggs, get some gasoline, and then I should be done.

CW,

I'm very sorry that it has to be you to tell your Dad. Your brother will get over it. You at least had the decency to tell him now so that he can see his Dad. He should be grateful.

Maybe the Dr thought it best for you to tell your Dad.Your Dad might not be in any shape to fully understand if it's he who tells him. His Daughter will. Personally I'd rather hear it from a loved one.

Keep strong in this tough time.

Just a "few" errands?

Gee, and I have no plans other than a quick trip to Winthrop and then back home. House is clean, today's inspection lasted a whole three minutes. So I get to sit back, watch the TV and do some needlework.

Addie, I live in a rather small town out in the middle of nowhere - 3 miles from one end of town to the other. It's easy to go to several places to get errands done, and be home within an hour. I love small town life.

CWS....my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
