What I did today: Today was a worrisome day. My dad isn’t feeling well. He has a bad cough and a bit of a cold. Last night, he took two different cold medicines and went to bed. They had a negative effect on him, left him weak and dizzy. He fell in the bathroom and it scared the hell out of me. My brother helped him downstairs and I’ve been sitting vigil most of the day, keeping an eye on him. He’s finally able to walk on his own without falling.
What I learned today: This fasting thing is always so hard during the first few days. I’ve been using the rubber band method to keep me from wanting food. Day 2 is almost over and I know tomorrow will be another difficult day. After that? Smooth sailing.
What I am most proud of today? I’ve allowed myself to sleep off and on, in between watching over my dad. Normally, I would have forced myself to stay awake with something this important and end up sick from it myself.. Sleep when he sleeps, awake when he awakens. It’s worked out well today.
What did you do today, dear readers? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Gotta watch mixing those cold meds together. My mom had a very adverse reaction to doing that. Hope he’s doing better this morning.
Yeah, if I had known he was going to do that, I would have hidden one of those medicines. He’s still a bit wobbly today, but doing a lot better. Thanks for asking about him 🙂
I’m glad he’s doing better…
Yeah.. I just wish he had waited one more day to do any driving though. He scared the hell out of me going up the highway this morning. Kept going over to the right of the road and skidding along those grove marks they put there. But we made it home in one piece.
