More reality

Today my dad is having his second triple bypass surgery. The first one was done in 1993, which was fifteen years ago. I have to be up early and I am up already, just can't sleep. I'm hoping to fall back asleep here shortly.


My sister is coming home from Iraq Saturday or Sunday to be home for all of this. My brother is staying in Iraq.


The dealio is if you come home for an emergency, it counts against you during your R&R, or when you actually come back to the States. So this trip is counting against my sister's imminent arrival home which was scheduled for very soon anyway. She just now has a shorter amount of "free" time in which she doesn't have to be on post.


That's all I've got and why I've been quiet lately. Wishing everyone a good weekend, Weebs.

Keeping your family in my thoughts. I hope everything goes well with your dad's surgery. And you finally get to see your sister! Not under the best circumstances obviously, but at least you get to see her. Take care!

I'll pray for the best results for your father's surgery, and for you to remain calm and healthy throughout, and that you have a pleasant visit with your sister. Be well.

Of course the surgery is over by now, but my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Enjoy the time with your sister (very cool) and I'm praying for a swift recovery.
