Today I found out that my Grandpa who lives about an hour out of town decided to have my uncle take my grandma to her Chemotherapy about an hour away from them because for the last day and a half he was having chest pains radiating down his arm, but as grandma is fighting cancer he didn't want to worry her. After they left he drove himself (I am going to talk to him about this later) to the hospital. they gave him Nitro and he felt much better. They sent him down here to Wichita to the Heart Hospital. He tried to talk them into letting him drive himself the 75 minutes down here but they refused. they are doing a heart cath tomorrow afternoon, but they are thinking that he had a mild heart attack.
I know he is in the best hands and that he is feeling much better and they are not concerned, BUT in my mind I am still very concerned. I am a grand daughter I think it is in my job description to worry..
Other than my mind being preoccupied things have been nice. Things are CRAZY here in Orlando but great at the same time. I am loving the weather and the people. some of the classes are going to put me to sleep, but I am loving Orlando as a whole. We found this great little restaurant called Cafe tu Tu tango. It is all based around sitting around enjoying food in a group setting. everything is served in appetizer portions with lots of little plates and you order a few and everyone shares everything. They have an AMAZING spinach salad with a vinegarette dressing with strawberries and pecans. Super yummy. BUT they also have a chocolate calzone dessert that is to die for.
I have done a little bit of working out but not as much as I should have done. the gym is all glass and mirrors and it looks out over the pool. Should be pretty right, YES it is BUT everyone and I mean EVERYONE can stare at you while you work out and guess what, THEY DO. so I have just been walking around the grounds because I am not a fan of working out and everyone staring at me.
tomorrow we have a group that is going on a "power walk" at 7 and I have already set my alarm to get up and do that.
I did wear my pedometer today, (well put it on at 11 when I remembered it) and I have 16,000 steps so I did get in lots of walking even without going for a workout.
Hope you all are having a great day.

Many prayers and blessing for your grandpa's health, and your grandma too! And way to go with 16K steps, that's something to be proud of! Enjoy the rest of your trip, if you can, given the situation at home.
