This has really, really not been a good month. It's sort of like, hey, universe, you can stop with the crap now, thank you. First Hurricane Sandy, and now, my father is in the hospital. His health hasn't been great to start with - he has diabetes (which he doesn't properly maintain), a very bad back and he's a two-pack-a-day smoker.

A few days after the lights came back on after Sandy, he started complaining of bad headaches. My mother dismissed it at the time as the shock of the storm. Then, he started having more trouble walking than normal. This came to a head when she found him collapsed in the hall in front of the bathroom in the middle of the night.

So he was taken to the hospital, and it turned out he had a stroke. They're talking about him going to a rehabilitation facility for a few weeks after that. I've been spending my evenings the last few days running back and forth to the hospital (especially since my mother's night vision isn't good, and I have to drive her).

Thank God I have a four-day weekend for the holiday - although it's pretty obvious my family's traditional Thanksgiving is canceled this year. I intend to take time to rest, and hopefully write for the GazettE Kink Meme (short bursts of intense porn are just the therapy I need). aleksiina_26, I owe you a birthday fic, I know - I'm going to do that when things settle down a little and I can devote more time to it. I'm sorry.

*hugs* I'm really sorry to hear that - you definitely didn't need any more on your plate. :( Fingers crossed that things start looking up for you soon, and as you said, porn is excellent therapy!

Ugh, that sounds terrible! I hope he'll feel better soon, and that you'll get some rest to be better equipped to deal with things. *sends good mojo your way* <3
