So What’s Going On?
As you’ve noted, I have not updated the blog in a while. Here is a quick explanation as to why that is the case. You may recall I had mentioned that my father had a heart catheterization. Well, that did not go as well as we had hoped. The doctors found three blocked arteries. So, he had to have heart bypass surgery. Once inside his chest, doctors found that there were four blocked arteries. Thus, the surgery was even more complicated than anticipated. As my father is in his seventies, he was quite confused several days after the surgery because of the anesthesia needed to keep him sedated during a 6-hour surgery. I spent about 8 days traveling “over the mountain” from Blairsville, Georgia, to Gainesville, Georgia. (I realize that statement means little to you unless you are familiar with US highway 19/129.)
Since my father’s return home, I have had to give a lot of time towards his care and recovery. I consider that one blessing of being “disabled.” I can be here for him and my mother. I have never been the best at budgeting my time and need cognitive behavior therapy to help me battle my ADD to be more productive. I have been trying to take small steps to provide more order to the chaos. In the interim, I am thinking of archiving all of my previous posts and leaving this one to allow people an opportunity to know what is going on and say a prayer for my father if they are so inclined. Eventually, I want to focus more on writing, reflecting my imagination, and less on the minutiae of daily living. I do think some might find benefit from an autobiography, as I have been through many illnesses, but that will have to come later. I would also like to write about my mother and father’s lives since they grew up in the pre-Civil Rights South. Their lives depart from Hollywood depictions. The main thing, though, at the moment, is getting my dad well.
I hope you and yours are doing well. 🙂
