There is nothing like getting a phone call at 3:30 in the morning from your son’s roommate telling you that he has all five symptoms of an appendicitis, according to WEB MD, and that he is taking him to the emergency room.
This happened early Wednesday morning. Then at 5:30 am, my son calls to inform me that he is going to have an appendectomy. WTF!!!
I cancel all my plans for the next two days which included another day of training at the DD Market and start my 90 minute drive to the hospital.
Then after Case and I arrive home on Thursday, I come to find out that the cat still has the urinary tract infection she got because she is so damn fat she can’t clean herself properly, and that is going to cost me another round of antibiotics.
Where is my husband? He is
vacationing working in Europe not able to offer any help. He has, however, called to let me how messed up his company is and how lame his meetings have been. Isn’t that so nice of him to check in?
“Ahhhh…. honey, yea, I’m a little busy right now trying to get a urine sample from the cat who won’t do anything in the litter box but sit there because her pee pee hurts so maybe I’ll call you later.”
Carsyn, God love her, informs me that we have no food in the house. Which is totally bogus because we do have food just not the kind of food she wants to eat! I mean, what is wrong with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for the 10th time in a row? She also makes a point to tell me that I forgot to rinse the blender and there is rancid milk at the bottom.
And finally, another round of fish have died which means a fourth trip to the pet store with a water sample from the tank, and the dead fish, to figure out why we keep killing these damn things and what else do we need to
buy do to make the aquarium work. Gone are the days of a bowl of water and fish. Now you need bubbles, and water conditioner, a heater and oh of course the water stabilizer because the water at the pet store is better than our water. And that is just for regular fresh water fish!
It never fails, when it rains, it pours and that doesn’t count the real storm that is supposedly coming later this afternoon that will not just lightly water everything, it will bring a deluge of rain similar to what the last couple days have been like.
Take a deep breath. Have a cup of coffee and go find a stool sample and be sure and thank God that it’s Friday.
