We took a road trip to TN to see my dad and step-mom. The weather was amazing.

Dad’s Health Update

December 30, 2004

Last night I talked to my father while he was waiting for the doctor to visit him in his hotel room. He said the doc had promised to be there first thing in the morning. When I talked to him at 7pm the doctor had still not shown up. They were going to check him out and go to Dad’s regular doctor if the cardiologist didn’t show up by 8pm Central time. I suspect they did just that. He said the same chest pains happened before he had the stint put in his heart last week and he wonders if they are separate issues. I’m praying the doctor can figure this one out.


We are Back in Boston!

December 29, 2004

Well, we made it home. It was an enjoyable and stressful trip at different times. My father ended up in emergency surgery for his heart and was released Christmas Eve. I heard this morning from my step mom Shirley that he is back in the hospital with chest pain. Ugh! Please say a prayer for my dad.

We spent time with the NavSol crew (the job I left when I moved to Boston) on the Friday that we got to Dallas, Saturday we had an open house party at my Mother’s so we saw a lot of great friends. Donna made the night memorable, thanks Donna. 🙂 After that, it was family for a few days. We stayed over at Dad and Shirley’s house for a night. With them, we ate at Abuelo’s and drove around looking at Christmas lights. Later in the week, we squeezed in a way too short visit to Christie and Steven’s beautiful new home in Northwest Plano and Jenny and Tom’s gorgeous place in McKinney. We did get a partial evening with Diane, Mike and Annette in Plano, which was a fun night. Sadly, we did not get to spend time with everyone that we wanted too; it’s amazing how fast 10 days can go by. Overall, it was a nice trip (before Dad got sick) and I’m thankful to those who rearranged their schedules and made sure they saw us while we were in town.

Don’t forget to say a prayer for my dad and Shirley! Thanks in advance!

Today was Peterson’s penalty verdict. Anyone who has been around me over the last two years should know that I have been following this case. Justice was served. The jurors took it very seriously. “He gave Laci and Conner an execution date and they gave him his.” May they rest in peace.

On a lighter note, I FINISHED MY FINALS!!!!! I took Database Management (Access) and Psychology this semester. The final for DB class consisted of eight weeks worth of projects, the same as we did weekly times eight. It was my third Access class and I learned a ton. The psychology exam was an eight-page paper cumulatively regurgitating what we learned over the last 10 weeks.

Now I can think about our trip to Dallas on Friday.
