Anticipating Good News

Today is smoke-free day 248, and I probably won't be quite right until I get the call saying that my dad is out of surgery (the open heart surgery is today). So far, I'm just hearing that surgery was delayed slightly due to an emergency but that my dad should be in there within the next half hour or so and that he is in decent spirits, ready to do this thing. I'm expecting good news within the next 5 or 6 hours, but of course, I'm still kind of pacing a bit inside my head. Which is far, far better than standing outside smoking and pacing as I am certain I would otherwise have been doing, and how silly would that have been? Funny enough smoking occurred to me this morning but was dismissed pretty much as soon as the thought popped into my head.

  5. At least you're not killing yourself by inhaling poison while your dad is in surgery. Best of luck, let us know when you he's okay!

  6. It is hard not to pick up smoking again when there are stressors. Good for you!
    Prayers for your father!
