They couldn't do the MRI cause they didn't have the blood work results back. He has an appointment tonight @ 7:15pm to get it done. It's going to take at least 45 mins to do the test, yes...with contrast dye.
The kids left yesterday. *M*'s head is doing much better. In a change of plans, i'm not going to drive down to pick them up on Tuesday. My parents are coming back tues and dropping them off and then turning around Thurs to drive down to OC, NJ. There was no way my dad's fishing stuff would have fit in there car.
My hair looks amazing! As Jim says i look like a "hot soccer mom" now, I did before/after pic's of both the front and back. Wow!
Yesterday was awesome.
We saw Stacey's little girl! She is so adorable. I had to hold her! I got some awesome pic's with my phone.
Jim's appointment went good today. His foot is healing. The circulation in both legs is good. Though he does have a clot in the left leg around his thigh down to about his knee. The veins and arterys have compinsated for it so the circ in the foot is good. They aren't going to do surgery yet....they will wait till the pain gets worse. He wants to do a follow-up in 4 wks.
I'm doing the reading assesment for the CNA class tomorrow morning. God, i hope i do good!
I'm going to upload the pics from my phone to the net. Hopefully, they will be up and posted shortly.
I'm waiting another wk to doing the reading assesment. I looked at my calendar lastnight and figured i'm going to start the Oct class. This gives me plenty of time to get the requirements done and try to get the loan.

in other unrelated work news:
Yeah, i'm sure by now everyone has heard about the "incident" at a local Macy's. Guess what? Yup, the one where i work.
I got to work lastnight and my co-worker told us about it and that if anyone from the news stations came in to say "no comment". One of the employee's did see the whole thing. .
If you have no clue what i'm talking about: Short version, Woman (in 20's) possibly pregnant either jumped or was pushed over the railing from the second floor of the mall right outside of Macy's.
having one of my moments.....
I've been real *****y and mean to DH lately. I think it's because i'm scared. I just feel this need to push myself away from him "just in case" something happens. I'm really freaked about how i would/am going to handle it when he passes away. Going through Zachary's loss nearly killed me....so i expect this to be MUCH worse on me. I just feel like i need to prepare myself.....but how the hell do i do that without pushing him away or being mean and *****y?
I found some good stuff.
People, I think, more often tend to think that grieving presents us with tasks, that there is certain work that we have to engage in in order to work through a loss.
The first task really has to do with accepting the reality, that it's really true, a recognition that a life has changed.
The second task, for the most part, has to do with coming to terms with all the pain.
The third task is learning to adjust to a new environment in which roles change.
The fourth task really is about finding a new relationship with the deceased person and finding new sources of meaning in life.
----This is exactly how i feel.Anticipatory grief is really about a dance between holding on -- staying with the person, still having a relationship -- and slowly letting go -- beginning to think about what life is going to be like without this person here. It's a difficult dance to do.
And there is something i just told him lastnight. In early Jan (before he was even admitted to the hosp) i kept going threw a box that has his nice suit in it and reminding myself that needed to have it dry cleaned. I know i even said in my head that he was undoubtably going to have to go to a funeral sometime this yr, and maybe even his own. Right? I felt like CRAP telling him that lastnight.
for the entertainment value only......
You'll never guess who i passed by lastnight.
You really wanna guess?
Yes, folks that would be the one and only "tricky rick". It was weird. He was standing by the side of the road, no doubt has lost his liscience AGAIN. I knew it was him before i even saw the face, just the damn posture and well, yeah......the muscles.
