Sick daddy. Day 110, 30km  (2/11/2009)

After a stifling hot evening with no sleep had by all, D’s mum knocked on our caravan door at 3.30am this morning to tell D that her dad was running a temperature of about 41 degrees and we need to take him to the hospital in Ballina.  We all knew D’s dad had been sick but we all thought he had the flu so we had been allowing him to rest over the last couple of days but with a temperature getting too high for human comfort we all jumped into the cars and drove the 30 kms to Ballina to get D’s dad into hospital. D then had be driven back to Woodburn to start running to Ballina, I couldn’t image what it would be like to be running on the side of the road when you would really prefer to be in the hospital sitting beside your mum while you find out what is wrong with your dad. At about 10am D’s mum did ring and told her that her dad had pneumonia in the right lung and will need to be in hospital for at least 48 hours, I know that D was very worried and didn’t really want to be where she was but everyone told her to keep going. I think D just got through the day by not thinking about her dad and just thinking that when she got to Ballina she could be with her family again.  Sometimes the rules of the world record are just not fair. It is really hard to run every day with no days off in normal, no stress, no injury situations but now D has her continued leg injury and the stresses of a sick father. How does she have the mental strength after all we have been through to carry on? It’s a mystery to me. As I write this tonight it looks like D’s dad will be in hospital for a little while but the good news for me is, that my daddy, Alistair will be coming up on Sunday to help us as we continue on. Hopefully D’s dad will make a full recovery soon but until then send your prayers

Always praying lately.
