As I said yesterday, painting at Dad's got pushed back to today and I had promised to be at the hospital about 30 mi from where we live to support my best friend while her husband had a stent put in this morning. Of course, things never go according to plan, the dr had an emergency so this procedure got pushed back and instead of happening at 8 am, it was about 10:30 when he went into surgery. All went well and he was back in recovery by 11:30 and dr was pleased with the results, BUT he is already telling him he thinks he will need more stents by next year. I am hoping this will be a wake up call to change his lifestyle and eating-he is diabetic, sedentary, and about 40 pounds more than he should weigh.
Once he was settled in, it was off to take my friend to get her medicine at Wal-Mart but she gave the dr the phone number for the one about 20 miles south of the hospital, not the one a couple of miles away so that took longer than planned!
I finally got back home about 3 pm instead of the noon I thought I would be. Then it was pick up Abbie from friends who kept her for us and over to check on dad and the painters. I had been trying to keep tabs on that by phone while we were at the hospital. I bet they all thought that pacing lady is a bit crazy but was trying to get in some exercise while I was waiting!
Hopefully tomorrow will be a little less stressful!
