And here we thought Tuesday would be a better day

Alright, Monday I drug myself out of bed this morning praying that today would be a better day. WRONGGGGGGGGG again Missy.

I swear I feel as if I'm dragging myself through fire just to get thru the day. I usually do this when my wildchild is out of town too long. She's been gone 9 days and it feels like a lifetime. During the course of her being gone, I have found someone to share my time and thoughts actual adult lol. Now, he's home sick and I feel powerless to do anything to help him. When he leaves my home he goes into a world I know nothing of, his "other life" with his kids, friends, etc. So, I'm stuck and not able to do much about how he's feeling. And I hate to admit it, but it has an effect on how I'm feeling. Talked to him a few times today and he was slightly better, not yet mended. **sigh**

Get home, the same quiet home from the wildchild and I'll be damned if she's not sick. 150 miles from me, with my parents and sick. Go freakin figure! My parents don't have a copy of my insurance card either, which is a moot point anyhow. I work for the carrier, I'm sure they'll see the light when it comes claim time. BUT, talk about feeling helpless yet again. Megann has been a blessing all of her life. She is my only surviving child out of 8 pregnancies. She spent her first 4 years at Scott and White hospital...wasn't suppose to be a year old, would never crawl, walk, etc....Needless to say, they were wrong. She's 11 going on 21 most days. But, I digress....Meg is sick at my Mom's, sick enough to sleep all day and not eat. Do I go get her? Instinct says HELL YEA...two issues, no babysitter here this week, and Mom telling me that she raised me alright, she can handle Meg for the rest of the week as planned. Great, I'll sit by the problem there.

Which feeds my guilt....I consider myself a good parent. How can I be that and have my baby sick and not home with me? Her Dad is in that town and can take her to the dr...yippee....he thinks sick is blood flowing, fever 106, green and glowing...not listless, refusing to eat, fever at 100 and side aching....nope, not sick enuff for him. Yeesh. So, I called him anyway and explained the better part of "If I have to come down there and take her to the doctor myself, while I'm down I will fix it so that you never ever use your equipment to bear children again"...was it too harsh?

Probably not nearly as harsh as he deserves.
