More bad news...

Well, I'm still on the road, headed home today. I'm in Altoona, PA at the moment, holed up at a *very* cheap Motel 6, but Am called me last night with some awful news. Rick, her BF, had an angiogram to see the state of his heart, and it's bad. Very bad. They said the heart disease is so far gone, they cannot even do a bypass as he wouldn't survive it. They are going to try some stents, possibly, but basically he's making arrangements. Wowzers.

Rick had a triple bypass 14 years ago when he was about 58, and they don't last forever. Especially as he's a heavy smoker and drinker. But they just went to Florida a few weeks ago and he seemed relatively fine. Am said he's been having a lot of chest pains lately, though, and going clammy, so she knew something was wrong, but he was being stubborn and wouldn't go to the doctor.

DC was an absolute blast, btw. Loved it all, including seeing my friends.

Grateful for:
-- the day off today to mosey home
-- finding the parkstamps website
-- this cozy and EXTREMELY cheap hotel
-- a great night's sleep
-- Altoona! LOL
-- having the US cell phone so Am can call me
