ere voice of dread

Left shin, with colors reversed.  (you can thank me later!)

After only 4 hours sleep, I went to work.  Great night with the child, except for the fact I broke my toe 2 hours in.

Saturday, my Father's Doctor came to the house.  YES, THE DOCTOR MADE A HOUSECALL.  After he was done caring for my Father, Dad asked him to look at my toe.  I had to explain what I'd done, no big deal.  He asked, "Are you sure it's broke?"  I took off my sock, he agreed, it was definitely broken.  "Doesn't it hurt?!"  Yeah, but in the grand scheme of things, not so much.

Sunday morning Dad broke his front tooth, I slept in a little, and his Doctor returned as promised.  New antibiotic, cuz despite our best efforts, it looks like he is on his way to having cellulitis.

Next stop: 

  1. Dentist for referral

  2. Oral surgeon for removal

  3. Dentist for prelim. x-rays

  4. Dentist (in 2 weeks) for work towards a bridge
I was told the other day that I need a Vacation . . . I laughed.

Doc. is pretty upset by the whole hospital incident and plans to make a great noise.

I hope that since your Mother "graduated", things are a little slower for you. Not necessarily easier, yet, but slower.
