This Day Blows!

My Mom called. My Dad is being admitted to the hospital. Apparently he has gained 40lbs in 1 month and woke up this a.m. w/a badly swollen leg. He has Cellulitis. I'm glad that it was checked by the doctor right away and I'm glad that they are admitting him (his breathing hasn't been good lately). I just wish they would find a cure for his COPD. For those of you who are smokers that are reading this - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop. Right now. Do whatever it takes to stop smoking. Seeing my Dad like this is horrible. It's from smoking... nothing else. Just those fucking cigarettes. My Mom said I don't spend much time w/them and she thinks it's because of my Dad's failing health. Maybe she's right. Maybe subconsciously I am scared to see my Dad sick (even though he's been sick more often than not for the past 10-15 years). Time for that shit to end right now.


  1. So sorry about your dad and your friend's child....could your day suck more? Geez.

    I'll second that on the "stop smoking" - it took a heart attack and emergency quadruple bypass surgery to get my dad to quit. Soooo not trying to scare you but I know how much it sucks to sit there and watch our dads get sick.

    Hang in there.

  2. I second the comments on smoking and so hope that things get better for you. You've had a really rough time of it recently.

    Sorry about your dad Jules.

    I quit smoking cold turkey last week, and I've been doing pretty OK with it. Hopefully this time will be for good.
