sad

Parents are mortal.

When I got home last night John said you need to call your sister. I forgot about it. Again after dinner he said did you call your sister, you need to talk to her. I called and left a message. I still hadn't heard from her so I called her this morning. Well for once she wasn't crying wolf. You see my sister has a tendency to be a bit over dramatic, especially when it comes to family matters.

So she went to the doctor with my Dad. He's had problems since his heart surgury over a year and a half ago. His kidneys are not that good. Now it seems they are down to 13%. I guess that's really bad. So they have decided to put a stint in so that when he needs dialysis it will be ready. Seems they would rather do it ahead of time rather than have to do some sort of emergency procedure.

I called my dad and of course my mother was on the phone too. I'd really like to have a conversation with my father alone but my mother just won't allow it.

He's on some new medications and hopefully that will help. But it's just a matter of time until he needs to start Dialysis.
