Jesus. Did it again. Only different method and different hand and finger. At least this time it's not broken.
I was changing one of the students and was taking her shoes off. Her AFO's (can't even explain what the hell they are, google it) have a space in the back so they can join together when she walks.....wanna guess? My middle finger of my left hand got smooshed and stuck inbetween the 2 parts.
yet, another EDD annvi of Zachary's. I miss you so much baby boy.
Finger is good. Numb, but good.
Kids are good. Got that lovely message last night from the Super of Schools here. There are 2 confirmed cases of flu in the schools here. 1 In *M*'s school. With the possiblity that it is the swine flu. He better not get sick. God, when *M* gets sick he does it in real style.
Jim is ok. Toe still isn't really healing. He's doing a ton of overtime. The sh!t is hitting the fan, so to speak, at his work. Can't get into it more then that.
Tuesday i got bit on the hand by one of our students. I still hurts like hell but it didn't break the skin.
Wend i took Jim to the ER. His right foot (on the side and underneath) was looking and smelling digusting. He was vomiting since Monday and the fevers were back again. They are taking the pinky toe and the area around it sometime today. He's an add on so we don't have a spefic time. They did a transfusion lastnight, his iron levels were wicked low.
Yesterday, my Aunt (in NC) went into the cath lab cause she had been having symptoms of a heart attack. There were no blockages or problems. They screwed up and nicked an artery and she flatlined on the table, they brought her back and cracked her open and did a dbl bypass. She's awake, alert and PISSED.
Also yesterday, i was babysitting my nephews. *M* and *J* were outside with Adam. I was sitting inside with Ashton. I heard screaming and immediately knew it was *M*. Adam and *J* come running to the driveway saying something about *M*'s head getting hurt and bleeding alot. Long story short: He got stitches. We got home after midnight.
adding into this:
Good friend of the family's DIL miscarried. We aren't sure how far along she was.
My yougest cousin's FIL is actively dying in Las Vegas so she's headed there.
Jim was released from the hosp. He's back in the rehab where he was after the last foot/leg surgery. They only took the little toe even though the bone and everything under the 2nd one was also infected....DUMBA$$ dr! So, they still might be taking the 2nd and now possibly 3rd toe on the right foot. They are supposed to decide that at his appointment next wk.
My boss's water broke last wk. I just found this out yesterday cause i haven't been to work since last tuesday and it happened that night. She had the baby lastnight. 4lbs 11 oz.
My mom's car got hit in the parking lot of dunkin's getting Jim a coffee this morning. It looks bad.
I feel like complete crap. I almost called 911 for myself this morning. I was having severe pain in the left arm/hand. I couldn't even use it to drive.
My body can't handle more stress right now. I almost puked at work today. I had to eat lunch and i kept getting that naueous feeling.
I can't take family leave cause my check also pays the health insurance. Jim's was paying the life insurance. Which we need to switch over to my name somehow. They can't give him another medical leave and can't keep his job open not knowing how long he's going to be out (could be MONTHS).
