Life's gone on hold for the moment.........

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

31st January my Dad had a fall and hit his head which meant he had to go to hospital to check for internal bleeding as he was on anti-coagulant medication. Scan was clear but they discovered he fell because he had a serious infection which had dropped his blood pressure and made him dizzy.

From thereon in the world sort of went into freefall and hasn't been right since. To cut a long story short, Dad didn't recover. He died on 16th February. His funeral was last week on 21st March, nearly 5 weeks after he died.

It was hard organising the funeral because Dad was very well known in the town and the funeral was a bit of a civic event as well as a private goodbye. Nevertheless it was a good day in the end and felt like an appropriate send-off.

I am now mired in a mass of legal paperwork trying to get probate sorted so I can inherit his house and what savings he had (not a huge amount).

Concentration on what I eat and even inclination to eat haven't necessarily featured much but on the other hand it was tempting sometimes to comfort eat. Nett result is my weight has been up one week, down the next. The knowledge that I am supposed to be eating healthy and losing weight sort of reigned in the comfort eating to reasonable limits, so overall I have still lost slightly, but I know I must get back to eating healthy stuff or I will be the one to suffer.

Hard though, when I basically want to stop the world and get off!
