41/365 - Finally home from Miami

This morning I woke up in Miami. I took two quick photos of my dad's orchid before heading to a nearly dawn meeting at the hospital.

Day 4 in Miami  - Dad's orchid

Day 4 in Miami - Dad's orchid

Day 4 of the hospital visit. We went very early to the hospital to meet with the doctor and got some good news. The scan showed no malignancies!!!!!!!!

My dad was able to go home today, so I went home too. What a long few days.

This is my message to those of you who smoke (like my father) - QUIT.

Quit. Just quit. Don't wait till next year, next job, next whatever. Quit now.

Quit before you get pneumonia, emphysema, COPD or cancer. Quit before you have a heart attack or a stroke. Quit before it's too late.

Just quit.

This was the notebook I jotted down names of medications, test results, questions and such while dad was in the hospital.

Finally home - my notebook

Finally home - my notebook
