Printing Maniac


I’m sitting here patiently printing out 500 business cards. Listening to the “Alegria” station on my XM MyFi.

Bet’cha didn’t know I speak Spanish, did you?

Well, I don’t. I just love latin music, even if I don’t understand a word of it.

Earlier, I took a few hours off work (gasp!) to give my Dad a visit. He’s doing really well. He’s lost more than a few pounds, though – – and has lost his appetite. He just picks at his food and doesn’t really eat anything of substance, even though Mom is trying in earnest to beef him up on a low fat diet.

But his mood is good. He looks good. He’s getting around really great. I think the appetite thing will resolve itself with time.

It does my heart good to see him smiling, laughing and back to teasing me again.

  1. Lisa, is it common for a person to lose their appetite or at least the sensation of taste after a heart attack? I know they already told you and your mom this, but Ensure or Boost is a great way to get much needed calories into the body. I wish you the best with his recovery.:smile:

  2. Wishing your dad well, too. I like the Latin music, too (and don’t speak enough Spanish to know everything they are saying), but I love salsa dance!

  3. Geeze, and hear I thought you were going to be telling us you were having and 80s flashback and doing the chair boogie to “Maniac”. 🙂

    That’s great to hear that your dad’s doing well. I’ve heard that the diet drops back a bit as well, and the best thing for now seems to be that his spirits are up. If they can stay up, normally the rest seems to come back. 🙂
