I had no idea why I got out of bed at 0745 this morning instead of rolling over and going back to sleep like a sensible person, but it was just as well. Half an hour later, [tumblr.com profile] copyx called me, asking if it was possible to get a ride to the hospital.

We checked in around 0900 and were in a room by 1100; L was released with prescriptions around 1500. In the interim, I finished one scarf, went and put gas in the truck (the warning light came on while we were trying to figure out where the hell they're hiding the ER at Valley Medical these days), and began - and almost finished - a second scarf. (It would be finished, but I determined it was too long and not quite wide enough and will rework it again later.) After dropping the scripts off at the discharge pharmacy, we went to the bank to drop off L's paycheck, had a badly-needed meal at the fabled Mini Gourmet (which, to my abject horror, is no longer a 24-hour establishment), picked up the meds, and got L home.

At which point I decided that I had fucking earned ice cream. In an amusing moment of synchronicity, [personal profile] gridlore had sent me a text while I was dropping L off, asking me to bring him something chocolate, so I hit the store, got us both something to satisfy our respective cravings, and got home around 1830.

This is SO not how I had planned on spending my day. But I'm glad I was there to do it.

Hugs - sorry to have added to the burdens, even tangentially.

Sorry it was needed, but yes, glad you were there to help. You make the world better by being here - there's proof, if you ever need it.
