UGH,,and it's only Tuesday

Still in the fair,,and on the Merry go ride. A few new trials and tribulations added to the ride today,,,Everything comes in three's,,,so here they are, how they came to me in order-
1) Am case PT. totally scratching all over-and ademi in legs, Dr's appointment in pm-gave Benydril for the scratchies,,,,she is so freaking thin,,and it is tearing her skin scratching as she is.
2} Next PT. moved off the rehab floor and onto a general "nursing home- Enviroment floor",,,,you ever see any zombie movies where people are walking in circles or use the bounce of wall situation to change path in travel---well that is where she is---
3] My nephew Michael who is in the picture above,,,is a diabetic since birth. He had brain surgery a couple of years ago,,and a pump put in just last year. Well I don't know all the details of why it happened,,,but today his sugar level shot up,,my little sister Midgie ( His Mom) called me at 9pm to tell me they are following the ambulance up to a hospital in Syracuse....his level was 812. I am really worried about him now. There is a lot about his illness that I don't know about that scares me. He is such a terrific kid and he has to go throu a lot of crap. He has such a love around him,,a Aura that is truley beutiful. My sister was following the ambulance up to Syracuse from Rome, NY- And they are in the middle of a snowstorm,,,plus now they have Lake affect snow to deal with to. It sucks.
4] the waiting is the hardest part,,,the unkown.
Ok,,that was 4. I actually probley could have made a list to 20. Are my bags packed yet for my holiday?----No. Will I some day achieve a award for procrasting- I am sure,,if not I will like be in second or third place. I think my list of things I am procrasting on has rose to 12---Ugh....There is always the Morrow.....Happy Trails**************%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
