Like a boxer who's been hit hard...

...I'm coming back to standing up, slowly but surely. Being sick sucks. It's not worth the downtime (and the responsibilities don't go away!), and I need to learn a new way to take time off. I'm sitting here carrying a few extra pounds, feeling not very energetic, but completely certain that I can get back to standing firmly on my own two feet.

My dad's doing better each week. He has not had a stroke and does not have a tumor, but his memory is still impaired. Well, this weekend we started playing brain games (variations on what I play daily on Lumosity) in an effort to help him get back to normal.

That's it from here.

It seems like everyone is coming down with some sort of flu! I hope you're completely back on your feet!

I can relate, though, because when moms get sick everything goes by the way-side.

I'm glad to hear your dad is doing well.

The main thing is to keep doing what you think is best.

You have very good judgement of things, so I know you'll do what's best.

Chin up misses, head high and GOOD LUCK.

You are AMAZING!!!
