You best jump far


Spent the evening hours at the hospital with my Dad. He had some tightness in his chest and numbness in his left arm and fingers. They admitted him. He was in very good spirits when we left. Happily eating graham crackers and peanut butter and waiting for his Italian ice to melt enough to use a plastic spoon. The doctors will run a whole bunch of tests to rule out heart problems. He was recently diagnosed with emphysema so we're all kind of on edge as it is.

It's my responsibility to notify my brother tomorrow. He didn't take the news of my father's emphysema so well, so this will definitely not be a good conversation.
