After running a couple of tests the doctor decided he wanted him to go straight in to a hospital in the city where he would be able to see a specialist. I don't have all the details because as of last night they were still waiting for more test results. All I know is he has some kind of blockage and is having a procedure done this morning. My mom and brother are taking a ride back in to the city to be there. As soon as they get more information they are going to call me. His doctor here was very concerned about how bad the circulation was in that leg. So if you could please send up a quick prayer for my daddy I would really appreciate it xo
Praying for your Dad, my friend. (((Hugs)))

Good Morning MMC!!!!!!! It's going to be another hot day here with a high of 78 predicted. After 3 days of the pollen count being off the charts, my allergies have finally decided to take the bait and go crazy. I can't let that get me down though. I have lots to do. Including doing the dishes since CAH has been AWOL the last couple of days. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Thursday everyone.

I know some folks don't like it but for me this has been a great spring. Winter was a disappointment but the snow we had in early spring and the mostly below normal temps we have had are wonderful. Hopefully this trend holds. A summer where the temp never reached 80 would be heaven.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a great time at the 'Pines yesterday. Carl sure pulled out all the stops for the first day of May! Today should be an eventful day. It's my final full-day at work. Tomorrow is half-day due to a physio appointment. I like a few of the people that I work with, but I'm ready to move on. Glad to have the opportunity to start a brand new position right away on Monday. Having no downtime and a constant income is exactly what I need.

Today is also forecasted to be the warmest day of the week. Temperatures should reach about 25c/77f. Beautiful weather! The long range forecast has Ottawa with sunny skies until after the following weekend. I doubt that will happen, but it looks great! The trees are either beginning to bud or have leaves make their first appearance of the year and Spring has finally arrived in Canada's capital.

Not many plans for today. I haven't been to the gym since Monday - due to my birthday and acupuncture yesterday. I think I will have to return for a little bit today, although I will not be able to do any leg exercises. I'm trying to ensure that I receive the full benefit of acupuncture. As for tomorrow, I don't know if I will be able to get into the gym either since my dad should be arriving around 3 PM. We'll see how it goes!

Well, I should get to work. I have a bit of things that need to be cleared from my desk. I don't know how much time I will have to work tomorrow, so I should really make sure I don't leave anything behind.

Have a great Thursday, everyone! The weekend is in sight. Let's continue this descent to the first weekend of May!
