Back in the ER

Ok, so now Dad is in the hospital. I took him to the emergency room yesterday morning, and they admitted him last night. Kidneys and prostate stuff. After checking on Mom this morning I'll be spending the day with him today.

Meanwhile, my oldest brother and his wife are playing tennis with their delta country club crowd, and my sister and her husband are touring a Missouri winery this weekend.

*big frustrated and bitter sigh* :-/

You know what?

I think I just might stop by the Krispy Kreme this morning. Dad's a book reader like me, and I'm taking him some books. So maybe we'll just read and eat donuts today.

Sounds to me like you are the responsible child of the bunch. There's always at least one and he or she gets to handle everything ... like caring for parents or younger siblings, etc. I know that it can make one feel put upon, but you can comfort yourself with the fact that you are probably a stronger person - maybe a better person - if that matters.

But have a nice holiday weekend anyway. Looks like mine won't be much better - we're gonna get rain off and on for the next few days. Hope your folks get to feeling better.

Thanks, Smartass :)

*big hug for that*

It's gonna be raining here for several days too.

I think you need to come to Texas and take a break and make your siblings do their part.

Sorry about your dad, now he is in my prayers along with your mom!

Thanks, Janie girl. I think I do need a vacation away from here.
