The first thing you think of when hearing your husband has a broken foot is to rearrange all of the trips so you can drive from now until eternity because WHO can drive with a boot on his left foot?
When he gets home, you grab the White Out and immediately make dots on the black Velcro straps where they exactly meet so when you have to put the cast back on him, you will be able to line it up EXACTLY like the nurse did when she put it on him(big assumption here that the nurse did it right, which, for ONCE I didn't have time to consider---see, I am making progress! lol)
When in the first nanosecond you hear your daughter has to have another lumbar puncture, you immediately arrange a schedule including what the easiest/most comfortable thing to wear to hang around a hospital, plan meals for the next 3 days, determine what time to leave in order to get to the hospital on time for the procedure, where you should park at the hospital and the list goes on...this is all done in your head before you leave the examining room.
When you go to bed at night, you lay there and think of how to mark the ACE wrap on your husband's foot so that you get it exactly as it was put on by the nurse. You think of taking yarn and wrapping the OTHER foot as you are unwrapping the injured foot and then follow the yarn path when putting the ACE back on after his shower. Or you could use color coded stickers, using one on the ACE and the other on his foot and match up the stickers when you rewrap his foot. (You fall asleep before the decision and end up doing neither the next morning because you're half asleep when you need to take off the ACE for his shower and decide that you're as good as the nurse at the office and you can wrap the foot back satisfactorily without a map. Until you do it. And then you worry it's not exactly right and keep asking your husband if his foot feels OK and like it did yesterday when he came home from the Dr.'s office...)
You get the drift....say it loud and say it proud, "I'm SO glad I do not live in close proximity to this person!"
Lyn's colonoscopy came out OK so it's off to the OB/GYN for tests to see if it's adhesions or an enlarged uterus that is causing the problem.
Lyn is looking for your best homemade flaky pie crust recipe. She can't make it to her specifications in her mind on what the pie crust should be like or the kind she has had in restaurants where it is so flaky. She is an excellent cook/baker so guess she just hasn't come across the perfect homemade pie crust recipe yet. Email your recipes to email@example.com and I will forward them to her.
Off to take Kiereney for labs.
