Just one of those weeks
By ThinGuy on Jan 30, 2008
Let's see here...Three visits to the pediatrician as the kids pass something around. Three of the exact same prescription for each kid, which of course there is no generic and is at the maximum range of our co-pay. Ch-Ching!
Same sickness has now been passed on to me and my wife have. My throat is on fire and I'm congested. I'm supposed to step on a plane this afternoon, but I really hate to do that as the cabin pressure drives these types of things deeper.
The second ABR test for Bellamy failed since she would not fall asleep (again). After the we could not get her sedated for first test the audiologist asked the ENT to up the dosage, which he refused. Sleep deprivation coupled with a late appointment was the answer. Late to bed and up early and no nap, that's the ticket! She fell asleep in the car for about 10 minutes, woke up right at the time of the test. And by woke up I mean in a state of panic and terror as she is scared of doctors offices. Fun!
On the Bellamy front both my wife and I are just plain mentally and emotionally exhausted. We just want something to go right. And really a lot does go right, it's just hard to see sometimes. It's very aggravating that I've cancelled two trips around these tests only to be no closer to an answer. I really don't like disappointing anybody.
On a not so serious note, but drives me crazy none the less. The cleaning ladies (we have a service that comes in once every two weeks and does a "deep clean") seemed to have hit ever wrong button possible on my alarm clock while cleaning. Theoretically an alarm went off, but the volume was set to zero to some spot on the AM dial that probably hasn't seen a broadcast in years. That resulted in a mad scramble to get everyone out the door on time.
The only good thing that came out of it made me miss the gym, which in this case is a good thing because I'm sick and I really do need the rest. I just feel so guilty about rest when there is so much to do.
Oh yeah and twitter was down. OK, I'm done complaining for the day.
Wait, no I'm not. It's only Wednesday? You've got to be kidding.
