Blah.

Dad is home now... doctors decided they would be able to do very little over the weekend, so he might as well spend it at home.

While three of his arteries are almost completely hardened, his heart is strong, and is operating well.

We need to figure out what was causing the fluid on his lungs before we can do anything with his heart. If there is an infection, we're looking at 6 months of antibiotics before we get him to New York Presbyterian.

So, he's home, I'm spending one more night here before returning to my apartment on Sat.

Oh yeah, my computer? It looks like it's completely fucked. My video card has apparantely went schizo. And considering I have a laptop, with everything attached to the motherboard, I might very well be fucked.

ummm... bring it to me before you decide you're fucked. It might save you some $$ if its only something like the ribbon connecting the LCD to the video card.

Boymeat, are you going to be ok for Wednesday? I want to make sure you know that "no" is a valid answer to this question... *supportive vibes and hugs*

FABulous - let me know if you need anything, food beforehand, beer afterward, any special room setup... (Would you like the stage set up like a catwalk, so the audience can feel the pain in 3-D?) *gigantic hugs*

Will a plain ol' table do? Else, I'll do some brainstorming...

Just as long as it would hold the weight, yeah, it'll be fine. What would also work is a portable massage table. Not sure if anyone in GMSMA would have that (Daniel would, but I don't think he comes to meetings anymore.)

Everything will be fine...my dad had 4 arteries blocked, but the doctors could only find 3 veins that could be used and had a triple bypass...and lived many years after that...

Sending you huge hugs

I just wanted to send my well wishes to your father. I have total understanding after what I have been tiringly going through with my own mom for the past two months and please give him a hug from us. I miss talking to him and your mom when we did in the past. They're terrific people. All the strength to you and your family for the hours of love, work and caring in taking care and getting dad well again :) hugs
