On the Mend

Friday, July 29, 2011

So today was a much better day for my dad.  He did spike a fever during the night, and they had to re-draw blood cultures, but his blood work in the morning was better (white blood cell count was lower, which is good, meaning the body is able to fight off the infection with the antibiotics). 

In fact, about a half hour ago my dad was down-graded to the general medical floor which is a very good thing.  He’s still very weak, but I talked to him this morning and he was able to make a full sentence Smile 

I think just a lot of rest and recuperation are in his future. 

As for me, I was a TAD bit disappointed today. 

I was hoping to make it to the beach today but Mother Nature had other plans—plans which included a very overcast day with NO SUN and scattered thunderstorms.  You can’t do the beach in that weather. 

So instead I washed the bed sheets, dusted the whole house, and cleaned both of the bathrooms. 

That’s not a fair trade in my opinion!!

However, I may see about going to the beach tomorrow depending on the weather. 

But I also have to fit in the gym.  I took today as a well deserved day of rest.  My muscles needed it! 

But I’m actually kind of looking forward to going tomorrow.  I don’t necessarily WANT to go, but I know I’ll feel awesome when I’m done!

Plans for tonight—playing a game and watching a documentary—with healthy snacks—our weigh-in is coming soon!
