On Saturday afternoon, my hubby and I flew to Ohio because my father-in-law had gotten worse. In the 3 weeks since diagnosis, he has lost 22 lbs. and is now jaundice with severe abdominal pain. By Sunday the pain was under control and we are talking to hospice. I flew back Sunday night and my hubby stayed behind. I had a stomach problem all weekend with alot of time in the bathroon at the hospital.

Monday, work was really bad . We had 12 people scheduled to work and 6 called in sick with stomach problems. Not sure if it is the flu or the free lunch we had catered on Friday. But it made for a challenging day.

After work, I took Hooch to the eye doctor for yearly exam and new contacts. We found she had a severe eye infection. No contacts for at least 1 week. (a crisis to a 16y.o.) And oh by the way, forgot to tell you mom but my glasses are broken. We picked out new frames and they would be ready at 8pm.

It's now 5:30 and Bino is finishing bowling practice. I pick him up then drop off Hooch's prescription at Walgreen. We drove through Culver's for supper then headed for home. My hubby then called he was flying back in at 930pm and could use a ride home from the airport. No problem.

It was 630. I ran in the house jumped on the treadmill for 30 min. I took a shower and out the door I went. I got Hooch's glasses picked up. The prescription picked up. Next I headed toward Midway to pick up hubby. I made it just in time .

I hope tomorrow is calmer but the odds are against it.

Waddling to Tuesday....

My prayers are with your family. Cancer sucks.

I can relate to your 16 year old. I have a 13 year old and I always get the "oh by the way" at the last minute.

Bowling practice!!! Cool!!! I'm an avid bowler who is averaging 228 and 224 in league this year!!

I'm sorry to hear about your hectic weekend and your father-in-law. I hope your stomach is better.

6 people called in sick! Wow!

Nice job on fitting a run in,I'd have been tempted to skip it.

Hope today is much, much better.

Sorry to hear you had such a rotten day. I second the sentiments on cancer - it just sucks. Thank goodness for hospice - those people wear angel wings.

Here's to a better rest of the week.
