Yesterday after work I went and picked up a few sandwiches to bring to my sister at the VA hospital. My dad had a scheduled angiogram and we were hoping that they would put stents in. Was shocked when I got there and the parking was free! Went in and up to my sister. She had been there since 6:30am and they still hadn't started my dad's procedure at 11. Finally started and we had lunch outside together. Was really nice spending so much one on one time with no kids with her. They didn't get done with my dad until 1:30. The doctor came out and we were hoping for good news.....found out that they decided the stent wasn't the right thing and he will need triple bypass surgery. Really bummed us both out and is going to be a lot to deal with. I think I am just having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that my dad is old :( We are such a close family and so it's a lot to take....especially someone so sensitve like me. I had to leave to get Reed from school but got to spend about 15 minutes with my dad. He was being so funny and so grumpy at the same time.
I had a good cry on the way home and getting Reed was the best thing for me. He was my shiny light that made me feel so much better. Him and lil Tito!
