What a Week

I can't decide which is worse, my husband being home or being out on business.  Both have pros and cons.  It is just really hard to get used to my husband being around only sometimes.  It is hard on our daughter, too.  Especially when he is gone for several nights in a row.  She just doesn't have a good concept of time, as a three-year old should.  She thinks every noise is her daddy coming home.

Last week while out on business, my husband calls and says he is sick and in horrible pain.  He is in a hotel that is a 3 hour drive away.  I tell him to go to the ER and he does to find out it is not an appendicitis, as I suspected, but kidney stones.  So, now he has to follow up with a urologist in Peoria.  He tried to make an appointment but could not get a hold of the person and played phone tag until I finally made the appointment. He went in today and things are good.

Also this week, my husband decided to finally get his eye infection checked out.  He has has this eye infection on and off for over three years.  He goes to the eye doctor and is referred to another eye doctor specialist.  Yesterday afternoon, after his second eye doctor appointment of the week, he finds out he has rosacea on his forehead (I thought it was just bad skin) and it is in his eye.  He received meds to clear it up, but his eye will have permanent scarring and rosacea has no cure, so this will be a lifetime issue.

This has been weighting on me all week.

Also, it seems that everything I did at work this week had some flaw or error in it.  For example, I made 30 color copies instead of 3, I was late for meetings (I am never late, always early) and I spilled water all over my chair.  I was just off my game and I could not figure out what was wrong.  I think the family life stress was just seeping in to my work.  I couldn't get caught up with work.  I didn't have much time to workout.

All the human doctor appointments are over this week and the future looks clear.

Oh and to finish it out, I had a vet appointment with both dogs.
