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.

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:
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!
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. 🙂
That’s great news about your Dad! Hope he continues with a speedy recovery!
I’m glad your dad is doing better. I’m also glad you took some time out. 🙂
