My day started out ok. I met friends at the Chowderfest on City Hall Plaza. I wasn’t a huge fan of the chowder this year but it was good to hang around with friends to get my mind off of Dad. We went to Houston’s for some wine after and I laughed.
Then I went to the hospital.
Dad did not have a good day today. He was grumpy and mean. He told me to “be gone”. He flunked his physical therapy test. He could not sit up nor walk. It is going to be a long road back to normal.
When I got home, I could not choose between ice cream or alcohol. The low fat Friendly’s Maple Walnut won out.
I am off tomorrow. I was planning on doing something fun but instead I will be going to the hospital and doing some errands.
Two years ago, I started this blog. It is hard to believe, I have kept up with it for 2 years. I have come a ways in 2 years but still, the shadow lurks and comes out now and then. Today, is one of those days. It is something I will be battling for a while. I wonder if it will ever go away.
