You guys have not seen/heard much from me the past few days.
I was up late working on Sunday and did not get to swim practice yesterday morning as I was just too tired after only a few hours of sleep. I planned to swim in the afternoon. I was up against some tight project deadlines and then life through its (should be expected at this point) curve-balls once again.
My Dad was doing really good and then he woke up yesterday kind of off so my Mom got him into his Dr. In the process of getting to the Dr’s office in the building he got weak, light headed, starting losing sight. They checked his blood pressure and it was incredibly low and they thought he may also be dehydrated again. So they called an ambulance from the Dr’s office and he was taken to yet another hospital (as they go to the one closest to where you are at). Once there they got him on an IV fluid and within 15-20 mins he perked right back up. So they admitted him and no;w are working on evaluating his blood pressure meds and a few other things as they think they may now be too a high a dose for him given everything else he has recently gone through.
Since none of this was “planned” I had to head out and watch my sisters kids as she had to work and my Mom was still at the hospital dealing with all of this. Meanwhile I was still facing a midnight deadline to submit some projects. So once he was in a room and all set she came home to relieve me but needed me to run my Dad up some supplies (his glasses, contact stuff, phone charger) they normally would have brought with had they known he was going into the hospital. This hospital is actually on the way to my house (the others are not close to me at all) so that made it an easy stop on my way home.
I spent a few minutes up there - and was happy to see him eating and in good spirits. And then I headed home. Finished up my work in the nick of time. Got in bed and for some reason at about 4am Annie woke me (very unusual) panting to go out. And from there I had the hardest time falling back asleep. So I have been dragging today and once again a swim was just not happening.
There is a lot of pink (meaning I did not complete the planned workout/swim - on my tracking schedule in the past few weeks. I would usually beat myself up about that but with everything going on, something has had to give a little and those early mornings were it. So I will give myself a bit of grace and know in the big scheme of things it will all level out. And I am still on plan for where my yards need to be to hit my goal for the year so I am not falling behind there or anything. My goal for weigh loss - yeah that is a bit of a disaster as I pretty much predicted because I have such a hard time with that. But I will figure it out.
(Also I was tagged sometime yesterday by the man on a mission @fitness-my-way to stop drop and selfie - so here I am finally getting a chance to relax and catch up on my dash before I crash early tonight, so I can make swim practice in the morning happen)
