Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today would have been my Dad’s 63rd birthday. We¬† are off to my Mom’s house to help keep her company today. I am going to cut and perm her hair before she takes my 15 year old niece on vacation to Kansas to visit her family. I am glad they are going. I think it will really be good for her. My Mom is the youngest of 10 children and since she is 67, some of her sisters are really getting elderly.

I am going to do my very best to stay within my calories today. My Mom likes to feed people. It’s going to be a stressful day.

I go see the cardiologist tomorrow morning. I’m hoping he has good news. When I was there before I was shocked to learn I have a hole in my heart. It’s always been there he said. He also said most of them close up in early childhood but mine hadn’t and wouldn’t at this point. He didn’t think it was really anything to worry about.

I can still feel my heart acting wonky. He has seemed to think it did not need to be treated. I’m going to verify with him if I am okay to exercise before I start anything new. He said my heart did worse under stress so I’ve not been exercising really until I’m sure of what my limitations are.

  1. I just found your blog and read it from the beginning. I’m so very sorry about your Dad. When my mom died 8 years ago I felt the very same way. I think it’s nice how you can keep close to him through gardening – esp. the tomato plants he gave you.

    Good luck at the doctor tomorrow. ::hugs to you::
