If not for the impeding illness with my dad, and wondering what’s next. Today would be a great day.
Slept in. Went to lunch at the fantastic “Dancing Elephant” an Indian restaurant down the road. Played a fun, and challenging little par 3, 9 hole at Sunset Ridge, and an ok little mini-golf course (did get one hole in 1, both for only $5 (yep a steal).
Got laundry done, watched a little US Open, listened to a little music in the park, and had delicious poutine, steak salad and an Allagash White at the Frog and Turtle with my fabulous wife Lanna.
But, I wonder what’s next. Looks like my dad’s brain tumor is back. Don’t know if there may be surgery as soon as next week. Don’t know if I will have to go to Pennsylvania for a while. Don’t know how much time there is left with my dad. Feeling like it might be just a few months. I feel lucky to have him this long but not ready to let him go. Especially with my wife Lanna, losing her beloved father just a few months ago.
I have rested a lot the last 2 days, had a total crash day yesterday. This is tough. And it’s really hard to be an 8 hour drive a way (at least). So I appreciate everyone’s prayers and have to take this one day at a time.
