More life

On top of all this, my father is going back into the hospital today. His legs have swelled up due to his diabetes (mind you, he STILL has fluid in his lungs.) So, he will be admitted to take care of that, and once that is done, then they can concentrate on his lungs again (which will also require a hospital stay.)

So, to summarize, I need to:

- Work.
- Keep control of my brain.
- Set up a car service for my mother to get back and forth to the hospital.
- Run to the hospital today to pick up the car that they used to drive to the hospital and drive it and my mother back home in Brooklyn, then trek back up to my place in Manhattan.
- Be awake for work tomorrow, where I will be the only person present for my department.
- Somehow maintain a cheery attitude
- Keep myself mentally adjusted to enjoy MAL this weekend

Tall order.

Okay, you sound reasonable right now. I'll call you later to check in with you.

Let me know if you need me to come up on Sunday or something. Remember, you don't have to do this alone dear. You have family that loves you and is willing to help.

Well, here is the deal. I'm out of town from Friday to Monday. I am still going on this trip - I can't keep cancelling things whenever this happens. I know he will be alright, and there is not much I would be able to do there besides sitting.

But, a visit to Dad would be a great thing, and I know he would appreciate it. In my stead, if you could do that, I would be most appreciative.

Love you. Thank you.

Let's just make sure he is actually there that long. Considering today is Wednesday, it is feasable that they will release him by Friday or Saturday.

Okay. Call me tonight or I'll call you? And we'll figure it out then.

You and I are supposed to get together tonight to work on our Febraury project. This really should not wait any longer. Do we have to reschedule???

It is good that you are able to support your family like this, but bad that diabetes has so many little things that require hospitalization and a great deal of effort by family to handle the logistics.

My dad has diabetes as well, so trust that your father will be able to recive his treatments and be released soon.
