We were all so shocked at how bad my dad's heart is - all 3 of the main heart arteries are clogged - noone can believe how he has ignored the pain for so long and how he has even functioned. It is believed he did have a heart attack the night we couldn't get him to go to the hospital - The night before Christmas eve. We gave him aspirin - that probably saved his life! He is being flown to a hospital up north on Tuesday for surgery on Wednesday. I am confident he will do well - he is a stubborn and strong man and in fairly good health otherwise - man I have to keep up my exercise and eat even better. I really need to make sure my DH & kids do too.
Now my mom has pneumonia - she has been staying up too late and worrying too much. I need to make sure she gets her rest and eats properly too. She is on a strong antibiotic that seems to be working well.
I did get to the gym today - thank goodness for that - it has really relieved some stress - I have been doing Rodney Ye's (sp?)morning yoga video most days too - it is only about 20 minutes, but it really starts the day off right. I am trying to stay in my calorie range - eating lots of veggies - but I am struggling with th chocolate habit still.
