Good to hear you passed the physical. That in its self is enough stress then add your parents situation and dealing with the farm, Well...  I think it will be interesting to hear about your new job and how you like working for someone else.

Been busy this afternoon.  Going over the Jeep, which is running great now.  Daughter wants it, and likely transferring it tomorrow.  If it acts up again, I'm just ordering another refurbished computer, as it would almost certainly be the cause if the connections I fiddled with weren't at fault.

 I also just finished 9 plow gauge kits.  I added 2oz of green slime to every tube just to add a safeguard.  2 are already sold, and I'll have the rest of them at plow day.

  The car dealership I bought the Mountaineer at has my new license plate in, and I'll pick it up Thursday or Friday.  Tomorrow will be too busy.

  Called Dad to check on things and Mom is mostly just sleeping, and hasn't eaten much.  Going out tomorrow to check on them & refill med dispensers.  If she doesn't start eating, we'll have to either get her in the hospital or the nursing home.  It's like she's just giving up or something.  The nurse comes tomorrow too, so going out while she's there so we can talk with her about circumstances.

Mom is much better today. Dad I believe told her she was heading to the nursing home if she didn't start eating and laying down all day. He said they talked 3 hours last night. She was a different person today. At town now picking them up a few groceries and picked up the new license plate and more roofing screws.

Took Dad to a Dr appointment.  He's got a nasty head cold and congestion.  Then while in the back room awaiting the Dr, he had a severe chest pain.  Dr came in and said Dad had bad affib going on and might have had a small heart attack or lesser Angina pain.  He had the ambulance pick him up & take him to the hospital.  Tests show no heart attack, but they kept him overnight for observation.  Hoping he comes home tomorrow.  Mom hasn't been doing well either, so things aren't so great here.  I start my new job in 9 days, with plow days coming up too, so my hands are full to the point of craziness.  My sister Wanda (GTT member Craig's Mom) is staying with Mom tonight.  Mom is VERY confused and really should not be left alone.  As crazy as things are, just imagine if I were still milking cows!  It's a very stressful time, so if inclined, please say a prayer for my parents.

Prayers to you and your family Daniel. I,'ve been thru what you are going thru and know how stressful it is. My mom had Alzheimer's for 8 years. She didn't,t even know us when she finally passed. Hard to say but it was a blessing. Be glad to come down early if I can be of any help.
