Sorry girls. It's been a bit hectic. Monday I was truly a slug and got some sun. I also got the news that my dad might have cancer. He was in the hospital to get his carotid arteries cleaned out.

Yep, that's my pops. He does not just clog an artery with cholesterol and shit, he goes for the biggies. Way to overachieve, Dad.

They postponed his surgery because he had, what they thought, was fluid on his lungs. Yeah, not so much. They did a biopsy and should have the results today. Now, I know the odds. My Dad smokes like a chimney and does not take care of himself. He has been lucky thus far in that my fam seems to have some sort of genetic mutation that allows us to abuse the living crap out of our bodies and pay very little for it. For instance, I subsisted on fast food for the better part of 30 years. Do you think I have high cholesterol? High blood pressure? High triglycerides? Nope, nope, and nope. Now, could my ass be smaller? Of course. Anyway, point being that this could be the nicotine gods coming back on his ass. If he has cancer, I just pray that it has not metastasized.

Please go pray or chant or do a "no cancer on SFG's dad" dance or something, ok? That man means the world to me. He made me try hard and never let me slack off. That sounds like a hard ass, but I know his motivation was good. He is the voice in my head always making me go farther, faster, and better than anyone else. If that voice is gone, then I am not sure what I would do.

All my thoughts are with you guys SFG. My MilkMan had his left (95% blocked) done two weeks ago and is going back this Wed, to do his right carotid (90%).

So far, so good. And so far, no more smoking...

I'll check back to keep up with your Pops, take care of yourself.
