Suffice it to say, I was very quickly NOT at the hockey game and at the hospital with the rest of the family. It was a scary night not knowing what exactly was going on but he was already looking much better by the time we headed home. The good news is...it was a very minor heart attack, his heart and arteries all look great, and he's had a stent implanted in the area where the plaque rupture occurred. And he's already home and resting comfortably! He's already quite healthy in terms of diet and exercise - and does not smoke or drink - so he just needs to fine-tune some things to help prevent anything bad from happening again.
Somehow in the midst of all of that, the last bit of training for the block got done. I needed that long run on Sunday morning just for therapeutic value if nothing else and managed to finish it off despite texts and calls from family along the way. Thank goodness this week is a rest week so I've been able to enjoy the lighter volume. Which is especially helpful as I've been busy driving kids to school, home from swim practice, etc, so that my mom can focus on taking care of my dad.
Anyway, now back to our regularly scheduled life...
