This is Amazing Grace - Phil Wickham

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God we were able to be around to help my dad today.
  • Thank you God my dad is resting at home, and no longer in pain.
  • Thank you God for text messaging.
  • Thank you God for Your Protection, Healing, and Provision.
  • Thank you God for hearing the prayers of Your People.
  • What a day - two trips to the hospital.  One to pick up my dad and then later in the afternoon to take him to the ER because the doctor recommended it after we went to his office.  Five hours later, we were at home finally.  My dad will be alright and is no longer in pain.  Had a scare when the nurse that was doing a procedure on my dad had a seizure.  I was standing outside the room waiting and then all of a sudden, all these nurses, hospital personnel, doctors rushed to my dad's room.

    They carried out the nurse and put her on a gurnie or bed or something like that.  She looked awful.  In the end, she was fine, but she has a history of seizures, just not when with a patient.  Other nurses took over for my dad and once they figured out where she left off, they were able to continue with the procedure.  Good grief.

    Anyway, really tired.
  • I did not get my subcon work done, but I did get 60% done, which I'm surprised I even got that far, by near midnight.  I will have to finish tomorrow.
  • Really way too much time went between lunch and dinner and I physically wasn't feeling well.
  • Thankfully my husband didn't come with me to take my dad to the doctor, as I rushed him there, as he was in a lot of pain.  Grateful we were going the opposite direction of traffic and made it 10 minutes before they closed.  I suspect the doctor wanted to go home and sent us to the ER.  What I thought would be a quick 1.5 hr of my time turned over triple that.

    He was able to take the kids to their karate class and stay with them.
  • I had a beginner's workout that I turned it into an intermediate/advanced workout and it took me nearly an hour to do.  Way too long.
  • Exhausted from the day.
  • Grateful that my husband, kids and a friend of mine kept praying for my dad and everything turned out alright.  But I will have to take him back to the doctor tomorrow.  I hope he will rest in the meantime and for the next week as the doctor told him to do.
  • Tried to sign the kids up for online Dojo, but something is wrong with their website.
  • Turns out I signed the kids up for the wrong karate class.  The class they normally go to was cancelled, so we will try to go to either Saturday or Monday or Wednesday classes.  The Thursday is filled with little kids, beginners.

Notes:  Today was my longest workout so far.  I made this a lot harder than she had it and pushed more since I didn't really workout yesterday.  I messed up in the ladder of 8 & 7 and did either 8 or 7 reps, but didn't realize this until I started getting things off my heart rate monitor for my blog.  Oops.  Still, a near one hour workout is a lot for me.
