Have I Mentioned?

You know, I usually write about this way in advance and I do believe I have at some point, but it's gotten lost amongst my worry about my dad and school. My follow up is today. It's 1:09 a.m and yes I totally should be in bed. I am a night person. Have I ever mentioned that? Yeah. I pretty much hate mornings. I love staying up late. I shouldn't do it because it's not good for me. I need to get up with the kids and I have to get up early for classes in the fall. It's a bad plan because I inevitably have to get up early anyway, so I just lose sleep. Bad I know!

I got off the point though. I have a follow up today. My appointment is not until 3:00 p.m. but it's a near 4 hour drive and I have to pick up Lexi from camp on the way there which is out of the way. I am not as anxious as usual. I don't think I have had time to worry about myself. I am glad. I don't need that added stress really. I will have the usual checkup and blood work to make sure I am still in remission. I couldn't even begin to imagine it any other way. The thought is simply to horrible too even fathom. So I'll just not worry about that for now.

My dad is home by the way. He was released quickly and guess what? He feels better he says than he has in months. Is that not amazing? The stomach ache (other than his surgery stitches) does not hurt. The pain is gone. How wonderful! I am hoping all final results come back good. His blood sugar got high during all this. There are things to be concerned about but he is better. I am just relieved and thankful about that. I better head to bed. Night all!
