Wonderful news today... he is feeling more like himself and wants to get better! BP under control. Sugars under control. Eating more. My nephew is taking over his business and doing a wonderful job. This will allow my Dad to recover without worrying about the finances. YAY!!!

Yes, he still ran his own construction business and was trying hard to keep it going while ill. Thank god he allowed my nephew to take control, and ALLOW himself to release it. That was HUGE. He will still get paid every month, but won't have to work so hard. At 74 he needs to slow down. OBVIOUSLY.

We all think he was holding so much in that it showed up physically as illness. That is why I always say what I feel at home... Here too, but mainly in real life.. no use holding things in and getting sick.

SOOOOOOOO I am so relieved today... thank you ALL for your support and prayers.!! yes, he has a way to go, but it is looking UP.. finally......

Not much to report this morning. Talked to my Mom and she is still so exhausted. She has never had to deal with finances and such, and there are bills that need to be paid. My sisters are there helping her, but she is so old school, that she has no idea how to even use a computer...

They will gather the bills that need to be paid now, make sure they have enough to cover them, and get that done. I wish I was there, because bills are what I do all day long...

Anyway, I want peace for her now. Dad is getting great care, but she is not taking good care of herself. She needs REST. Maybe when we go up this weekend, we can convince her to just rest for a few hours while we take care of things.

On the eating front, I am sticking to low carb, and trying to get into Ketosis deeply so I don't have to bother with food while doing so many other things. This is the 3rd day now, so hopefully this will do it. Have not tested yet.

Hope all my good buddies are having a great day!! Back later..

Hi Deb. Just checking in on you. I pray your mom can get some rest. It's important during this time... but I know it's hard. Thank God your sisters are there to help her sort out the bills and get them paid.

You should be in ketosis by now. Have you tested?

Have a good day, girl.

Morning Deb.

Don't worry about your diet. Well actually, come to think of it you should! We should learn from your pappy's experience! We all need to watch our food intake. VERY IMPORTANT!! NOt so much for weightloss but for HEALTH!!!
GOOD LUCK!!

Hope your momma gets her much needed rest!

Thank you Meek. I should be, but I still feel like eating too much. I probably have too many carbs with my atkins bars etc. I will test tonight when I get home.

YOU ARE RIGHT!! of course Pati dear.. I am consciously trying to eat better, but when we are running back and forth to St Louis and here, about a 2 hr drive, I don't always make the best choices. Working on it though!!!

I also pray that Mom gets some rest. I may see if she will take a sleep aid for one night, so she is not up from thinking about things. We shall see.

HEALTH is the main thing I am focused on right now. Making best available choices.

Low carb will definitely help for now. Yeah test tonight, I bet you're already in ketosis if not in deep ketosis. Take care hun.

Thank you Shari! I just got word that he is retaining too much fluid still and they are going to go with more Lasix to help. Now of course, my Mom thinks he is not going to make it.

She is just so so tired and upset. I wish I could do something more. This really sucks! He was up and using his walker yesterday, and now she is worried he won't make it a week? UGGG..

Oh boy! Your poor mom is playing the worst case scenarios in her head I am sure! That's stressful on her but hopefully she isn't feeding this to your dad! He needs to be worry free in order for his body to recover.

Still praying for him and for your mom too! Gosh, poor thing is probably so stressed!

YES, that is it Pati!! She is definately doing worst case scenerio and I met the doctor, so I know that doctor is telling her all the most negative and worse things that can happen.. uggggg!!!!

Anyway, she is not feeding it to him that I know of, she is trying to be strong, but at this point it is so hard for her... I wish things would turn for the best, and STAY that way.. too many bumps in this road.

Thanks hon, you always have encouraging words..

Oh boy! Hopefully the Lasix will do it's job enough that the excess fluid is gone. Your poor mom, some people try to prepare for the worst thinking it will help but in this case, it's causing too much stress on her and I'm sure you all too. His body is having to recover from major surgery so it will adjust...just need a bit of extra help from the meds.

Thank you Shari, I agree. He just had major surgery TWICE in a week and a half, plus having undiagnosed High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. I am sure it will take some time to get all these things under control and for him to be on the mend. I just worry about HER more now than before, because she just is not used to life without him there.

Praying she gets some peace and rest and some good news VERY SOON!

Mom is a mess. Dad is going in for a scope this morning to check on a possible ulcer situation. Which MAY be why he is not wanting to eat??

Good news on the financial front as my darling son will be taking care of their outstanding bills Mother was worried about.

All in all, it is an ok day so far.

What a fantastic husband-to-be I have! Seriously, that's awesome!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. Sucks she is having a rough time but very understandable for her!

I hope Dad's scope comes out clear. Hopefully they can get to the bottom of why he isn't eating and nip the problem and he can get back to getting nutritious meals in him!

Prayers for all!

Thanks Dear, I totally agree, what a sweet thing to do!!! he's a keeper!

Thank you also for all the good thoughts and prayers you are sending out.. trust me, they are going to good use!!!...

I just want my Dad to get somewhat back to himself, so that mother will stop being so upset. It is terribly hard to see our ROCK taking this so hard.. poor Mom.

I am sure Dad would do things differently if he could understand and see what this is doing to her right now...

POWER FORWARD!!! that is all we can do!!.. pray for the best!!
