I knew that my father had been having headaches and that his condition was worsening. I knew that on Thursday (the day of my post) that he had a doctors appointment. I figured that he was having migraines again (he had them when I was younger) or that it was something else (he had shingles once and had horrible headaches from that). So I wasn't concerned. My worry ratcheted up a notch when my mom let me know that they were taking him for an immediate Cat scan.

My sinus' were draining and really did a number on my head and I just kinda crashed. I was still sluggish this morning and decided to not go.....figuring that not over extending myself was a wise choice for today.
Soooooo, my world has YET to settle down. My life has YET to be calm. My life is still falling apart....and I'm starting to wonder if I should put a sign around my neck that says "come near me at your own risk!"
Meanwhile, the cats are doing ok. Holding their own. :-)
