Mark Atwood
My Dad
I just learned that my Dad collapsed and hurt himself in the fall a few days ago.

The high altitude thin air in Bolivia and his habit of overworking himself to physical breakdown, combined with his habit of not keeping track of whether he is taking aspirin or Advil, and so taking them together...

Concerned and exasperated at the same time.

Current Mood: concerned and exasperated

I know seriously,

But remember when the ambulance came for Dad & nobody bothered to tell Jeanette, and she was HOME at the time?

Yeah, THAT was a fun experience. Mom comes down and says, "Well, your father is having another collapse."
I assume that means he is very tired and wants to go to bed at like 5:00.
I watch Smallville and then go upstairs just in time to see Dad being carted away in the ambulance and the upstairs filled with somber looking men from the ward with their suits and ties on.

Nice Mom. Next time please define collapse.

It's a good thing he doesn't drink...

or he could have killed himself. He is quite a baby when it comes to pain so he will take whatever he can get his hands on. Mom said he is out of pain pills now so that is good.
