5 DAYS!!!

I have 5 nights off in a row! I am so excited! I get to sleep when normal people sleep and sleep and sleep some more. I might clean the house and do laundry and get groceries, but mostly lay around and sleep. Did I mention sleep?

A week like no other

Life is crazy. That is all I have to say really, but I will elaborate and tell all about my week.
It kinda started Sunday when I was at Stephens auditorium for a dance competition. I got a call from work asking me if I would be on standby that afternoon, even though they knew that I was working that night. I got the message from them and my thoughts started racing. I thought that I wasn't supposed to work until Monday night. So I called around and tried to figure out what was going on. It turned out that I was supposed to work, so that meant that I wasn't going to get a bunch of things done that I had planned for Monday.
Monday night I fell asleep after I watched House, and turned my alarm clock off in my sleep and sat up at 10:56pm. That was a bummer, I was twenty minutes late to work.
The next morning I went to my moms house to tell her something and she said something about my sister was home sick, she wasn't feeling all that well. Back up to Saturday, she had been having some stomach pain, but my mom told her she needed to wait it out. So Tuesday morning she was home sick from school, and I said, oh I can take her to the doctor for you because she had classes all day in Boone. I got her into the doctor at 11:30. I slept from about 9-11:15. The doctor wasn't sure what it was and ordered a blood and urine sample. Both of those were inconclusive. So he ordered a ct scan. That wasn't until 2pm. I wasn't able to sleep while we were waiting to go to radiology. Then after the scan we were told to go home, it would be about an hour or so. Two hours later the doctor called and said that they were 90% sure that it was appendicitis. He told us to go over to the hospital and get checked into pediatrics and the surgeon will meet us there and get her prepped for surgery. We got to the hospital at about 4:30 and she didn't go down to surgery until about 7:30. The waiting is really a killer. Keep in mind that I didn't haven't been able to sleep since about 11:15. It wasn't for a lack of trying... I was just to worried about my sister to sleep. I also didn't want to leave my mom alone at the hospital to deal with everything on her own. I am sure that she could have, but I didn't feel right. Esther finally got out of surgery about 30 minutes later and we went up to her room to wait for her. An hour and a half later she finally came up out of recovery. That was 9:45 and I had to work at 11. I ran home and showered and then went back to the hospital for my shift. By 7:30 wednesday morning I had had two hours of sleep in the last two days. I went down to peds and checked on my mom and sister and both were doing well. I went home and fell asleep VERY quickly and got up at 10pm that night. And went to work. It is starting to feel like all I do is sleep and and then live at the hospital. When I got to work that night I wasn't sure if Esther was still there so I ran down to peds and asked. The nurses gave me a weird look and said she left at 7 that night. On thursday I went to my moms house to sleep because she was going to be at school and then her clinicals all day and Esther needed someone with her. I didn't get much sleep there because people are always coming and going and making too much noise. I did manage to get groceries that afternoon after my brother came home from school, and did three loads of laundry. I went to a book party that evening and then got ready for work. That was last night.
This morning when I got home I passed out. It was wonderful. I got up at four and went to see Bolt with my friend and her kids. That is a REALLY good kid movie.
Anyway. Now I am laying bed watching No Reservations with my roommates. I almost feel human again!
I am going to curl up now and watch the rest of the movie and then sleep some more! Ah bliss.
I have pics from the hospital that I will post later.

At work we are all space agey and the like. It is quite fun.

The thermometer that we use is VERY fun. You run it across the forhead and behind the ear and as you run it is making a beeping noise. Several people have jumped back and wanted to know what it was. It really does look like something out of Star Trek. I love it.

I thought people should know how much I love my job.

Dangerous Driveway

On Saturday night I was rushing out of the house to make it to a movie (Yes Man- VERY good). I made it past the sidewalk and was almost to the street and all of the sudden I was knee down in the curb of cold water. I have a REALLY cool bruise and scrape... but I don't think that you can upload pics from your phone... unless there is some link that I am missing.
I have to go to bed... Lots of things to do, and little time to sleep!

I have some sort of bug, and I hate it.
I threw up at work last night at had to leave. I also called in sick tonight. I feel like such a slacker, but I can hardly move. Anyway. I just wanted to rant about the sickness that is plaguing me for a day.

My new favorite store!

I used to work at Duckworth Wearing on mainstreet here in the greatest town on earth. Recently (yesterday) they opened a new branch of it called The Loft. It is a fun little consignment shop for teenagers and young adults. I bought a couple of shirts and am looking forward to consigning some of my stuff there in the future. That would be way easier than garage sales or eBay. I was just super excited.
After that I went to my friends house and practially forced her to go out without her kids. Mostly I just wanted to play with Luke and Gabe and hold Ike, but I also wanted her to get out without them. Then I found out when she got home that her birthday is on Wednesday, so it all worked out perfectly!
I went home after that to take a nap before I had to work at 11... I set my alarm clock for 7 so I could watch House, but I turned it off because I decided that I wanted to sleep more. Then at 11:43 I sat straight up and started running around because I was LATE for work. Thats the 2nd time I have done that- but this time my alarm just didn't go off.
Anyway, I think that the reason also for sleeping was I have a coldl that I am trying fight off.
I think I am done ranting for now.

Someone has some good news!
