Here we go. My Dad came home from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon. Here he is looking all cool in his shades on the porch after the drama of the weekend calmed down. We were told that his heart is now beating at only 20%. 3 years ago when he had his heart attack, it was beating at 40%. So if you do the math.......
He always said he wanted to live to 100, and so that is the gist of the title of this post. I now know that will not happen. They did not give us a month/year range, but I'm thinking a year or year and a half, IF he does not have another heart attack or something else. And I hope he beats my prediction and knowing him, he just might do it.
The Dr told him he could still drive, so the first thing he did when he got home was to grab my Mom and the dogs, jump in the car and head for KFC for grilled chicken, cause he ate very little in the hospital and he was starving or so he said. Last month he turned 92 and renewed his driver's license for another 5 years and told me that this would be the last one. I teased him and said Thank God, the other driver's on the road thank you!! We laughed alot over that one, and then he said, I can drive just fine cause I have Cat Eyes!! Obviously cats can see damn good while driving!! He is a funny old guy. He will tell you a VERY dirty joke, just to watch you freek and then just laugh and laugh!! I am going to miss him desperately when all this happens.
I wanted my 100th post on my blog to be a happy one, maybe the 101th.
