I haven't posted anything lately because my life has been put on hold. That's the way that I feel really.
Thursday morning I was getting ready to walk out the door for a doctors appointment with the girls. My phone rang it was my mother in law. She told me I need to listen carefully. She proceeded to tell me that Dean couldn't get a hold of me. I find out that Dean was taken to the hostpital. He was at work and a 60lb dehumidifier hit him on his head and neck. According to my husband he saw stars and fell to his knees.
When I got to the hostpital(a.k.a. worst hostpital in the world) they didn't know where he was. I finally got to him he was on a board and had a neck brace on. His response was " this is no big deal you didn't have to come". So the usual protocols were done. Eight hours later I took him home. I went and got his meds filled and got him lunch.
Hannah went to my inlaws and Gracie stayed with me. I know Dean needed rest and he wasn't going to get it with Hannah around. I love my Hannah but she doesn't stop talking unless she is sleeping. I knew Gracie would be easy to handle.
So Dean is in a lot of pain. He has been out of commission since Thursday. I am playing the role of both parents. I took off Friday to make sure he didn't go unconscious on me. Saturday I got up early took the girls to my inlaws I went to work.
After work I treated myself and went to Target and got a white chocolate mocha at Starbucks. I needed to get a few things for the girls. I went all by myself and didn't feel guilty.
I am really tired and overwhelmed. My life flashed before me and I couldn't help but think the worst could have happened. My husband has a strong build to him. The doctor says he's lucky he could have broken his neck.
I went to my parents church yesterday. I just needed my mom and dad. The girls were happy to see them. Gracie just wanted my dad and Hannah wanted my mom. So I got to take in Mass. For some reason I just started crying during the communion song. Now that I think about it that was the first chance I got to really reflect on the last few days.
I finished teaching Sunday night. The 6 week course went well. I had to take the girls with me because I didn't have anybody to watch them. I will write more about the 9th graders later. I will say they were so awesome to work with. They really impressed me with the discussions we had. I am going to miss them. I will be back next semester and I am excited.
So I hope you all are well. Have a good week!!!
