Because, you know, ya gotta have it.
The Kid has been sick for almost two weeks. He got a different job here about a month and a half ago, hauling Sheet Rock. So he travels from job to job and is outside quite a bit.
Being still pretty young and having that feeling of immortality plus a deficiency in common sense, he has been doing all this out in the rain without any rain gear, while being sick.
The Wifely Unit heard this and immediately asked if I had any rain gear he could borrow. Fifteen seconds later I handed her a brand new set that was just inside the door to the garage.
You know, because I am a hoarder, right?
Unfortunately, he kept getting worse and worse. Saturday she had enough and took him to the ER.
Did I mention a new job without health insurance yet?
Six hours, a CAT scan and a handful of pills later, he is informed that he has Tonsillitus. He comes back home takes the pills and goes to bed.
Last night at OH DARK THIRTY, approxomately Four in the morning, he is in bad shape.
The Wifely Unit loads his ass back up and heads back to the ER.
Eight hours later, ANOTHER CAT SCAN and FOUR prescriptions in hand, she takes him up and gets his prescriptions filled and comes home.
Now we find out he has the Tonillitus plus MONO and an enlarged spleen.
Ain’t nobody had much sleep so I called into work also and took the day off.
That place is too dangerous to be wandering around like a Zombie and not be paying attention to what’s going on around you.
The Wife is beat but being a Mommy she is fussing over him like a broody chicken.
I didn’t do a damn thing all weekend because my lower back went out Friday after driving around in her little fucking car. There is something about the drivers seat in that little sonofabitch that has it out for me. No lumbar support or something. I went to get out of the fucker and was crippled.
It finally popped back in last evening to my great relief so I am going to sit here on my ass again today and probably take a couple of naps now.
It will give me the opportunity to watch the Wife worry and fuss over the kid while I have the headphones on so I at least don’t have to listen to the drama as it unfolds.
