A VERY QUICK UPDATE ON DAD

Today it feels like I've eaten my bodyweight in comfort foods. I didnt think I was worried about my Dad's surgery but subconsciously I must have been fretting.

I was up at 4.30am doing the ironing and then with some added pressure at work I seemed to be eating all day. Thats one for the FB :-(

Mum and I visited Dad tonight and he looked good (breathe a huge sigh of relief). He showed us a picture of his totally blocked right coronary artery and of the 3 stents he had put in. All should be good now.

When I got home I had a drink to relax and I'm heading off to bed very soon. Its made me stop and think about what we put in our bodies to cause such problems and maybe a little more vigilance wouldnt be a bad thing. In other words make sure the healthy stuff REALLY outweighs the rare treats.

Will catch up with comments and other blogs soon.

Good night all

That must be a huge relief. He will feel so much better with 3 stents and will be back on his feet in no time. Angioplasty is one of my fave procedures to watch, it is amazing seeing the arteries re-opening and seeing what a positive impact it has on a persons life. What you wrote about making sure the good food outweighs the bad is so true.

I hope tomorrow is a lot less stressful
