The Rest of the Week

Monday, as I already reported was great. 

Tuesday was just as good if not better. 

Wednesday, things weren't quite so glorious.  I took my mother to the eye doctor that morning.  It was a planned trip; quite routine with no surprises.  But, it kept me from my morning walk.  I got home about noon and started to walk when I learned that there was an air quality alert and it was not wise to go out.  I started to anyway, and recognized the irony of doing something unhealthy to get healthy so I didn't go.  That would not have been so bad, but I didn't walk that evening, nor did I do any strength training. 

Thursday I had been asked by my former employer to come in for 'a couple of hours' so I agreed to go in the morning. I thought that I would get it over with and get home to my new work and get in a nice walk.  The couple of hours was actually eight, so a walk didn't happen then either.

This morning was to be 65MD's surgery.  It didn't happen.  When we got there we learned that the scope of the whole situation is much larger than we thought.  The fix is going to be much more involved as well.  Now surgery is scheduled for August 27 at 1:30.  Between school starting and the doctor's schedule this was the soonest we could make that happen.

I really don't want to get in to the details for the sake of 65MD's privacy, but this whole thing has gotten me a little bit rattled.  I'm losing my focus on my own health.  There is some irony there to be sure!  Please keep a good thought, prayer, meditation, or whatever  you do, for us.  I fear we are in for a long road ahead.


  1. he's in my prayers as well as sendin reiki to BOTH of you. just remember if you have to take care of him you have to take care of you too! stay strong i KNOW it'll all be ok. if you need to talk/vent/cry/scream/cuss whatever i'm here darlin. i got big ears and wide shoulders! xoxoxoxoxo

  2. Under the best of cirumstances, it would still take a while to adjust to the new and unfamiliar routine. You have the added issues of having a foot in two doors (starting the new workstyle while not quite finished with the old one) and now concern over an unexpected illness. Be patient with yourself in ALL areas, but at the same time, don't give yourself permission to quit. In the long run, that would cause more harm than ever, both physically and mentally.
