Murphy's Law - Update

Good. Unless I have some lurkers, no one has been here yet except me.

Ray's doctor appointment was this morning and they want him back in the hospital - again.

Meantime I discovered my phone wasn't working. I have to find out why the bill isn't shown as paid but first I have to rescue Elcie from the bus (which isn't here yet), wait for the other two to come in and call the doctor with an emergency contact number.

Bus just pulled up with Elcie. One thing out of the way.

The girls' mom ran over to my friend's house to make phone calls for me. She's back and the doctor now has emergency phone #'s so that's two things. As soon as the other two arrive, I'll go find out what happened to my phone. My grandson was supposed to pay it on the 31st and I thought he had. (Update - still don't know what happened with him but the bill is now paid (maybe twice?) and it should be turned on in a few minutes. And the other girls are home.)

It's not an emergency with Ray which is a good thing but he's had several different things going on which, taken together, have the doctor concerned. The last time the doctor called for a bed (you'll remember if you were reading a month or so ago) it took three days. That won't happen this time because I'll be taking him to the e.r. tonight whether they have confirmed a bed or not. (Update - they had a bed almost immediately and another friend drove him).

If this were not a family friendly blog, I'd be using some inappropriate language right about now. (Update - immediate crises have now passed and I'm stopping to breathe.)

Anyhow, this may be my post for the day. The girls have finally wound down from Halloween, have finished their homework, and we're all taking it easy. I think we may have breakfast for dinner tonight - simple and fast.

Thanks for all the comments, take care, and I'll be back later or tomorrow. Probably tomorrow (or after midnight if I can't sleep).

Well, I am glad that have a bed.

I hope they make him well though...really well.

Hang in there Ann, if you feel the need to vent go over to my comment section and let fly, if it's to bad I'll delete it later.

Madcap said...

I'm not entirely sure what's going on, but I hope Ray's alright, and everyone else too. Blessings to you all.

Dear Ann:
I sure hope Ray feels better soon, and this isn't a long hospital stay!
Take care of yourself....I'll be praying.

I hope it's nothing serious with Ray am I glad it was not a repeat of the nonsense that went on with the hospital and the bed last time.

Take Care and get some rest

Looks like you had about as many crisises as you could have in a day. My hopes are for the best for Ray. ec

Lavender Dawn said...

I too offer my well wishes for ray. I am sorry about your phone. It really sucks when stuff like that happens. I hate technology downs!

Good luck in all!

Blessed be.

My grandma had pneumonia once and had to spend the night on a gurney in the hallway, so gosh, I'm glad Ray got a bed. I'm an infrequent reader, so I don't know if you've ever discussed exactly is wrong with Ray, but I do know it is a serious problem and seems to come to haunt you both a lot. I sure hope he is feeling better Very soon.

hang tough is in order I guess. hope to hear more from you soon -- And, Rebecca looks positively radiant in those Birthday/Halloween pics!

Missy said...

Ann, I hope things are better now. Sorry to hear about all of the not-so-positive excitement.

As for the music, she's a singer (a Russian Jew) who was schooled at Julliard, I believe? She's just a pop singer (abeit, one you won't hear on commercial radio) and I just love her music. I may post some more links later.

Again, I hope things are better there.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Ann, my thoughts are with you and Ray. Hope it's not too bad and glad to hear he was able to get a bed straight away. That last lot was really bad.

PS. I vented with some inappropriate language on your behalf!

Merle said...

Dear Ann ~ I am so sorry you have had all these latest hassles.The phone would be the last straw. Do hope Ray recovers well and soon. Try to get some rest for yourself, so you can deal with all the problems and be there for everyone else.
Take care, Ann, Love, Merle.

Turtle Guy said...

Life sure is full and rich for you these days... for good or bad.

Wouldn't it be nice to just... slip away for a while - leave the troubles and tails behind for just... a while.

Alissa said...

You guys just can't catch a break, can you? I'm hoping today will look a little brighter for you. I'll be thinking of Ray.

venessa said...

Oh, ann, what a long and difficult day! I am tired just reading your post. I hope you can get some rest, and Ray is doing better today.

LoisLane said...

Hope everything is ok with Ray!

Mary P. said...

Oh, not more doctors and hospitals! You keep such an upbeat attitude, but it must get wearying. I hope things with Ray get sorted soon and he's back quickly, none the worse for wear.

Alice said...

I'm here. I'll call you tonight (your afternoon) if I can. If not I'll call you tomorrow.

Email/IM me if you want/need to. Just remember that I'm praying for you, and that although I'm many miles away and without internet when not at work, I'm still here for you.

:-)

Sorry things are so stressful.

Breakfast for dinner is *always* a great idea though!
