1. My father was taken to the hospital on Tuesday for a severe seizure. He was getting ready to see his doc to get the beginnings of his cultures done for an esophageal cancer screening, and before they could make it to the car they had to call 911. He also went into kidney failure and his blood pressure wouldn't stabilize. He's still in ICU now, but his kidneys are finally functioning again and his blood pressure is holding stable, plus they say that he physically LOOKS a bit better. Everything is a win at this point. I've had a rocky relationship with my father in the past, but we've reconciled and started to rebuild over the past few years, and I really want to spend more time getting to know him again. He's a good man, and hopefully he'll keep fighting as hard as he has been and he'll come out of it. But there's no way to know, we can just keep hoping and praying right now. Please keep him in your thoughts.
2. Before that (and still) I've had a sick toddler, so my life has been workout-less completely. Whatever. I'll get back on it when I get back on it, and hopefully this weekend I'll be attending a super awesome Women's Half Marathon with two of my best friends instead of flying in last-minute to California for bad news. If I make it to that race, every step I run on Saturday will be sending my healing thoughts to my father. I hope it helps.
3. I have more suckiness than this in my life right now, but there's no point in talking about it all. So, number three is for you to fill in with something that doesn't suck. Leave me a comment with something awesome that is happening for you right now. I love to hear successes and happinesses (is that a word?) from the people around me. And that's not being fake or trite, I seriously just like seeing those I care about be happy. Plus, maybe your positivity will rub off on me, so give it a try...tell me something great!
(This is where I'd put a picture of my dad that I had from our get-together last year, but some asshole hacked my computer a while back and I just found out that my photo folder is empty. Because I need more crappiness right now, right??)
