Well I didn't get a run in yesterday, and I could give lots of excuses but basically I just didn't have it in me to make the effort. It was a blech day all day. I blame it on the "return from holiday" blues. This afternoon is going to be perfect running weather--50s, sunshine--so I'm all set for a great run today. I'm planning on 5 miles and just cannot wait. I need this run like I need my daily Latte. =)
My brother in law had a mild heart attack Sunday night and DH and his sister left for Nashville yesterday afternoon to be with him. It's his second in 2 years, and it happened because the stent in his heart from the first heart attack got clogged. He knew what was happening when it started, and went to the hospital right away where they gave him meds to somehow unclog his heart and stop the damage. They are putting a stent inside the stent today. The prognosis looks good, but it's still serious, of course. Hopefully DH will be home tonight. Nashville is only 2ish hours away from us.
My husband's dad died at age 51 of a heart attack in the middle of the night when Mark was 8 years old. So this heart attack business is touchy stuff and brings up not only worries about his brother, but memories of his dad and thoughts of DH's own health. He's 45 and in much better shape than his father (and his brother, who's 55), but he has tons of stress and the bad genes and eats crappy food quite often. His cholesterol is high and he needs to get back on meds for it; I don't know exactly why he stopped taking them, but after this episode with his brother we're sure going to talk about what he needs to do to make sure this doesn't happen to him. I know there's only so much we can control, but I need my husband to be healthy for a very very very long time.
