I have not had the time to be on much as of late.

 

I have been spending all of my time taking care of my Dad since his new heart valve surgery. Being that he can't drive or lift anything above 10Lbs. I am doing all the things he can't do. Like mowing, tending to the gardens, shopping ect...

 

And when I am not doing that, I take care of everything for my Nephews Great Grandmother.

 

I do try and come on here late at night when I get home, but I am usually to tired to reply to posts.

 

Tomorrow I am taking a little brake. I am going to take my Dad with me to the beach and he is going to hang out while I do some surf fishing. So hopefully I can catch him something to grill up, Either a Blue Fish or Stripped Bass, I might even rig up and catch him some Scup (Porgy) as he likes to throw them in the smoker. No matter what the weather is going to be great and we'll both get a chance just to get away from everything for a bit.

 

Anyway, I just thought I would let you all know why I haven't been around as much.

 

Chris

Sounds like a nice break, if the fish aren't biting, could dig up some hogs and make a chowder  :thumbs:  :beer:

It's funny you say that John! My Dad wants to make a weekend out of it, and have me get some "Hogs" and Blue Claw crabs on Sunday. :D

I hope you have a great time with your dad. Mine had heart valve troubles that were corrected last year with a procedure called TAVR. Very interesting process, done via catheters. Was you dad's surgery open-heart, or maybe this TAVR?

Hope you will catch a big fish.

As we say here in Denmark: Knæk og bræk (crack and break)

Have a nice weekend.

His was open heart, The Doctor decided this was the best procedure for his situation. This was also the second open heart surgery my Dad has had. 15 years ago he had a 5 way bypass. He is doing great right now, he is real sore still but he is getting around great! Even the Doctors can't believe how well he is doing!
