I am technically on vacation this week. That means that I am taking my father to the DR, my eldest to 2 doctors and I am going to squeeze in the zoo for my youngest (if it stops raining.)
Dad was in the ER last week. His feet are swelling and the cause is either his CHF (congestive heart failure) or a couple of his medications. He needs the medications to strengthen the heart which is only pumping 15% of the blood the body needs to function. He refused to stay in the hospital, so he needs to see his cardiologist tomorrow. He is also having difficulty in the evenings remembering things. It isn't a true 'sun-downing' it is a result of his brain not getting all the oxygen it needs because of his diminished heart function.
Bre, my eldest, is seeing the optomitrist and neurologist this week. We need to get her migraines under control. I am also meeting with a friend from church about getting her a mentor and a tutor. Her p-ACT scores came back astronomically high and my friend wants her to get a tutor to inspire her curiosity, not to help her in her academics.
Knight and I have been making friends outside of AA. It is a little weird. These people don't drink to excess. As a matter of fact, they barely drink. Hmmm...odd people. LOL.
