I can say by Saturday morning I felt good. So away I went and had an absolutely perfect day, supporting my dear friend and her little man. After we were done I realized my hubby had called and texted me a few times. Not thinking much of it I called him only for him to tell me he was in urgent care!! Wait, where?????? Yuppers, he had injured his knee at work and when he tried to get up that morning, lets just say he moved as quick as I did just a couple days earlier. So I rushed to urgent care and sat with him. Apparently his years of playing football had totally destroyed his knee and there wasn’t much they could do. You know it’s not great when there’s a group of healthcare workers looking at an x-ray and discussing how awful it looks. Well that’s wonderful because we totally had nothing else on our plate! After spending over 4hrs in urgent care, Chris hobbled out with a zimmer and crutches.
The best part is that we have planned a road trip to California for this weekend and now we are kind of in limbo. Between appointments, treatments, scans, and Chris’ work schedule we had found our window of opportunity to get away and then of course life needs to get in the way, grrrr. So I also decided to get an oil change and service my car since we are planning on driving. When I went to pick my car up the gentleman tells me what they did and then goes on to tell me, “Your breaks are really close to needing to be repaired.” I responded by telling him, “Well I’m driving to California so will I make it there and back?” He looks at me and tells me, “Well… that may be close.” My response, “Ok, that doesn’t sound super promising, like I’m not going to plunge to my death down a mountain cause my breaks don’t work am I?” He looks at me and says, “Oh… probably not.” hmm.. Probably not doesn’t work for me, I need to hear definitely not so I look at him and say, “what’s your name so that in case me and my husband plunge to our deaths my family can place blame on somebody!” Not even kidding, his response was a pause with a nervous laugh, all whilst not telling me his name. That’s promising for sure I thought. So that was that and I thought could these all be signs to not take a darn vacation???
Whatever happens we will make the most of it, and I am still optimistic we will be able to go, zimmer, crutches, and all. Heck, I’ll stick him in a wheelchair and get a handicap sign and think of the phenomenal parking we will get everywhere we go! Yes, we will make this work one way or other because, after all, we are quite obviously a dream team of a couple in regards to our health! California here we come, slowly but surely we‘ll get there (Just please let us make it to the border, at least)!!!
