Where to even begin on this horrid day from hell? I should have known speaking to a nurse from Ethan's facility 10 minutes after my alarm clock goes off was not going to be a good thing. Turns out it set the tone for this Monday. Ethan was rushed to Children's Hospital in Austin. He had severe stomach pain. Turns out he had a blockage in his intestine that they worked hard to clear. They managed to get it cleared and he is able to return to his facility for the time being. If the blockage happens in the same area again he will be going into surgery to remove the part of his intestines that is damaged! Not a great thought when your baby is 7 hours away! They assured me he was doing better and he sounded better when I talked to him on the phone. He was joking and laughing about them putting water in his butt. My poor baby handled it well and said the staff member that went with him made him laugh and helped him.
I am happy that they are caring and they did keep me informed every step of the way.
I had my doctors appointment today for my contacts and left with none. I can't get them on post since I have a fucked up axis. So it's back to the off-post provider to shell out the money.
I set out to have beef tips with rice and gravy for dinner but that didn't workout. There was no way I could have them simmer with me being gone for an hour and half. So they will be for dinner tomorrow night.
Travel pay for our trips to Shreveport and the trip to Texas should hit tomorrow. Thank God we avoided a Government Shut down! That would have sucked totally.
I have decided to do a make-up look tomorrow since I have a couple new products that I am loving! I am also going to start at the end of each month doing a list of faves for the month. Should be fun.
So I hope everyone is having a great Monday and I sure as hell hope the rest of the week goes better then today did.
