This week has been a hard one for me. Yesterday I went in to the doctors and that was kind of stressful and then today my dad went in for major surgery on his back. This has been hard on me because I feel so far away from my family and just want to be there and see him. I know I don't live in a different state but with school every day for me I can't just miss whenever I want.
I have been waiting all morning and finally my mom called and said that he is going to be ok. The doctor said that his back was a lot worse than they suspected and they had to work hard to try to get his back to normal. We won't know until he starts to walk around how he is really going to be. This will be very hard on my dad because he is such a goer and a doer.
I am very excited that I have a four day weekend so that I can have some down time and I will get to go and see how he is doing. I think that we realize often how great our parents and family are but when they are going through hard times we really come to terms on how much they have influenced our life and how much we truly love them. My dad is an awesome man and has taught me and made me so much of who I am. I can't imagine life without him.
