Well this week has been a horrible time in my life. My back went out again last Tuesday, I am not even sure why but I think it is due to the chair at Branson that I sit in when working in the closet. So I have been off for a week now, however my back is not responding to the usual treatment and I am starting to get concerned. I have a doctors appt tomorrow as long as I am in shape to go. However this is not the worst news… Last wednesday dad went for his angiogram and apparently they found some blockages in two arteries of his heart and they rushed him to Lausanne ED to have double bypass surgery. Even writing that it doesn’t seem at all real to me. I am not sure if it is a mixed blessing that I am not trying to concentrate on work and worry about him and my mum. I have spoken to mum a couple of times and Fizzy once, in fact she was the one who called to give me the news. So unfortunately this week has, in a word, sucked. I am hoping that we will be able to go to Switzerland for Christmas and maybe even see Fiz and Gordon so that at the very least we will be able to give Dad some support. I will write more tomorrow after i have been to the Doctor and should know more about both my back and my dad. I am still in shock, I am sure, because no matter how many times I go over it in my mind it just doesn’t seem real.
