week from hell

This is turning into the week from hell. Yesterday my dad collapsed at work (a clinic is a good place to collapse if you have to) and was rushed from Cross Plains to Abilene Regional Hospital. It turns out that he had a dangerously slow heartbeat. It seems that it was not a heart attack, though. He's on a temporary pacemaker and will get a permanent one this afternoon. It seems like a pretty good outcome, all things considered.

But my poor mom is a wreck. Luckily, my sister was able to go join her last night. Thanksgiving plans are now out the window and it looks like we'll have to drive up to Brownwood (and back) on Saturday to see everyone and celebrate a low-key Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, I'm wracked with guilt that I'm not there.

Handyman calls and wants to come on Friday. Moving company calls and wants to pick up the sofa on Monday. Trying to get the final copies of the Shirish book from AlphaGraphics today. Trying to clean off my laptop and turn it in. Just had my exit interview. Have to do a P3P one more work-related meeting now. Yikes! When it rains, it pours.
