Ugh. Today is NOT my day. I’d like to crawl back into bed, hide under the covers and go back to sleep. Hopefully when I wake up the day will get better.
First, my father in law was admitted to the hospital last night. He’s experiencing some internal bleeding, and his blood pressure is very low, so they are monitoring him and running some tests to see where the bleeding is occurring. We are concerned and anxious of course, to figure out what is wrong.
Then, I noticed something was wrong with Hannah, so I rushed her to the vet, only to be told she would need immediate surgery, and, oh, by the way, it will cost $480. The worst part was having to leave her there, she was clearly upset and she kept trying to get me to take her home. (Her poor little bottom has a golf ball size abscess, and it would have ruptured at any time….)
And then I had some not so nice emails to come home too. As much as I try, I never do a very good job not letting them get to me.
When it rains, it really pours, doesn’t it? I’m taking my box of tissues, wiping my eyes, and heading back to bed.
**Quick update – My FIL is doing better. The doctors were able to find the tear and cauterize it, but he’ll have to stay in the hospital for a few more days for observation.
And my sweet Hannah is awake from surgery and resting. She had to stay overnight for observation as well, so we’ll have her back home tomorrow. I’m missing her terribly, but I’m glad she’ll be in good hands (and on pain meds).
Thanks for all of the sweet encouragement. It’s just been one of those days.
