My morning started with a bang (literally) Mike got the bang when he fell face first and split his eyebrow open.  He called me this morning at 7:30 and told me he had fallen and was bleeding pretty bad.   I got the first aid kit and drove over to find he had a substantial laceration in his eyebrow and a big ole rug burn on his forehead.   I tried to close the eyebrow with butterfly strips but without success so I took him to urgent care where he received 3 stitches.  He is fine but will have a black eye and will probably be sore for a few days.  Luckily he didn’t hit his head on anything on the way down.

I got to work 2 ½ hours late but since I have to work tonight it will all even out.  I’m going to have to take off again on Thursday to get Mike to his psychiatric appointment.  I told Ron this morning that one of us definitely needs to retire.  It’s way too hard to take care of Mike and work at the same time.

Weight loss has been a nice bonus from my hip replacement.  Because I'm more active and gave up caffeine and diet drinks....I've lost 30 pounds.  Everything I gained while I was inactive from hip pain.  Back in my old clothes................hooray!

Election Day tomorrow....don't forget to exercise your right to vote!

Olga, I am definitely counting days. I have 9 months left to work. This will be my last Christmas here at the children's hospital.

That makes me hope that my heart surgery will help me lose weight too! Good for you. Sorry about Mike.

Judy, good luck with your surgery I know it will go great. It's always nice when it is behind you and not in front.
