Still Stressing . . .

Saturday, November 02, 2013

On Tuesday evening, My dad went back into the hospital. My mom took him via ER as he was having chest pains. By Friday, they had decided to go and do a heart procedure on him. By the end of the procedure, they were very confident about what they accomplished. They are hoping that this will do the trick.
I have been doing some emotional eating as well as not making the healthiest of decisions. I am amazed that I had weight loss this week at all. However, I worry that it won't be a weight loss that I can maintain as it wasn't due to healthy eating and exercise. I hope to get back on track this week.
I was even more bummed that I didn't continue my streak of logging my points on time as I was sitting in the hospital all day yesterday. There wasn't much down time when you get my sisters and I together.

    An exception has been made,,, and we are allowing Carla to CONTINUE On with her STREAK of being a "TOP DAWG". It just would NOT be fair to say that since she wasn't able to get her time on Fri,,,, due an emergency,, that we'd be HEARTLESS and NOT do so. Instead she's STILL A GO !!!

    Hon, as I wrote to ya,, I SURE hope your Dad will be like MY Daddy.

    WE ALWAYS CARE hon,

    HUGS !!

    Glad your Dad is getting the help and care he needs. My DH had heart problems about two years ago now and is better than ever. I will wish the same for your Dad. Now you take care! Woot to the sister power! emoticon
