Anyone out there?!

From starting this blog, I have found that I have become a little obsessive about it. I constantly check to see if anyone has visited, and more importantly, if anyone has left a comment. haha. I really want people to read, so that I don't feel like I am just writing to no one. Each time I blog, I imagine someone reading it, so I guess I'll continue and hope for the best.

Today I am very sleepy. I can't sleep as it is, and I felt like I was awake on the hour last night because of some silly, but vivid, dream. And 7am comes way to early. I don't see how people can get up at 4 in the morning, go work out and then start their day.. it truly amazes me.

But the good news of the day is that dad gets to go home... or at least that's the plan. For those of you that don't know, he has been in the hospital since Jan. 4, originally diagnosed with pneumonia. We found out that dad has brain cancer in mid November, and he had surgery to remove most of the tumor and then started radiation. He came down with a cough during the month of December, and mom finally felt she had to take him to the ER. He was put on a ventilator the day after he was admitted to the hospital, and luckily came off that in few days. 5 rooms, 3 infections, and 1 round of rehab later, they feel that he is well enough to go home. We will find out today if the insurance will pay for the at home care... it would be way too much for my mother to do all on her own. Plus, he still needs some physical therapy, to get his strength back and his weight up.. he's lost over 30 lbs! The next step is chemo, and I am praying for a miracle that something good comes out of it. He just can't seem to get a break with any of it. Here is a picture of my sister, dad, me and the fiance from our wonderful trip to Italy in October.

UPDATE: I went to the hospital on my lunch break today to see dad (which I have pretty much done everyday he's been there) and to my suprise he had on the jacket that he is wearing in the above photo... coincidence?
