I’ll be away for a few days…

Sorry I haven’t responded to comments or visited anyones blogs…my dad had chest pains last night and went to the ER and the news wasn’t good. His arteries are blocked really bad and he’s going to have to have triple bypass surgery, so I’ll be gone for a few days looking after him. His spirits seem to be good and we’re all hanging in there hoping for the best. He hasn’t always lived the healthiest lifestyle so if all goes well hopefully this will be a second chance for him to start over.

On a positive note, the job interview went well today…hopefully I’ll hear something back soon from them and I’ll try to let everyone know how it went if I get some free time.

Try to keep us in your thoughts and prayers if you can. I’ll miss all of you while I’m gone and I’m sure I’ll have TONS of posts to catch on when I get back. Read lots!

  15. It’s good they caught yout dad’s illness in time. Just make him promise to commit to healthier living and tell him not to be afraid. Sometimes heart disease and bypass surgery makes some folks develop a weird kinda dread. It seems to go along with the illness. All really should be well with him. Heart disease surgery is pretty normal and well-done nowadays. I’ll be praying for him. Glad to hear the interview went well. -C
