So today is my dad’s triple bypass. It has been a long day already. They have pushed my dad’s surgery time 2x already today. He was taken up to his room for prep about an hour ago. My sisters, mom and I went out to find something to eat. We ended up going back to the same place we ate at yesterday (Sunset Manila on Vermont Ave.) which was a small Filipino restaurant where the food was “ok”.Â From a culinary point of view, I haven’t found Filipino food that was more than just OK. The taste is great, but Filipino food doesn’t present well on a plate!Â We ordered a little bit of that and this and ate family style.
Mom is holding up ok. She had been having crying spells now and then for the last couple of days. Today she seems strong, probably for my dad. We gave our hugs and best wishes to our dad just before the orderly brought him upstairs.Â We won’t see him again until after he is transferred from Recovery to ICU.
In the meantime, my sisters are in search of the LA Garment District and looking for a good deal. They’ll be back in a couple of hours. My mom is in the waiting room while I am outside enjoying the warm weather and all the cute guys in scrubs! I know…I shouldn’t be thinking about that, but I need some distration.
So I think I will do some research online and get some work out of the way. I’ll check in later with an update if there is one to give.Filed under: Family, Health Status, Personal Log
