Bad Surprise Day

In a surprise move today, my wife dislocated her left elbow, so a call at 9am from a neighbor got me scrambling. Fortunately, said neighbor took in my daughter for the day while I waited in the emergency room with my wife.

FYI, emergency rooms move at a speed somewhat between molasses and that sticky tar that they put onto roads.

Also FYI, getting elbow relocated is not something that you want to do.

Well, I'm glad the emergency part is over. The world-turned-upside-down part has just begun. My wife has one arm. This impacts almost everything that she does. A household worth of work has just landed in my lap. Thank God that I saved up leave. I have lots and lots of it just for this occasion.
