Some of this, some of that, a little bit of the other

It's been a little over a week since Dad was released from the hospital and we are figuring out our routine. It's pretty laid back, but there are still things that have to be done every day. Dad has to walk for a few minutes a day outside so we make sure to do that. There are also breathing exercises that he does. Otherwise, we hang out, watch movies, talk, and just generally enjoy each others company. 

It's never a good thing when someone has major surgery or is ill, but I believe everything happens for a reason and it has been good for both Dad and I to be able to relax and spend some time just doing this and that without having to adhere to a particular schedule. We will be seeing his surgeon and his cardiologist on Monday to assess where he's at and what needs to be done from here. We are both expecting good news.

In the meantime, there are things to be done. I will be driving to Victoria on Saturday for a mandatory practicum meeting. This was not something I knew I'd have to do. It came up just recently because there are issues to be discussed with all the students. Yes, there's a story there involving a professor who seems to be easily offended and lacks a sense of humor (in my estimation). It's best I say no more than that, but that should give you an idea. Why no, I am not happy about having to do this, why do you ask?

While I'm in Victoria, I will attend a colloquium series on body language. I'm required to attend two of the four they present during the semester and since they have one on Saturday and I have to be there, I figured I'd get it out of the way.

To close, here is my Random Thought of the Day: Placing a medical office next to Sonic is rather efficient. Once someone keels over from the delicious fatty, cholesterol-filled goodness of Sonic Tator Tots and or the chili dogs, they can just be carried about 10 feet to medical help. I'm not sure if that encourages eating said tots and/or chili dogs, but there it is.
