Well it's 4 am and I can't get back to sleep. Darrin was having shooting pains in his ears around 2:00 this morning so we went to the ER. The doctor checked him out and found a pretty bad ear infection going on in there. Darrin is a commercial diver, so the doctor told him absolutely no diving for at least the next 3 days. When D asked if he could be back in the water by Tuesday the Doc said, "let's just play it by ear."
Umm, OF COURSE that made me bust out laughing, which I don't think is proper etiquette when your hubby is lying on a hospital bed. Thankfully his Demerol shot had kicked in by then so he was feeling pretty good and didn't glare at me too hard.
As we drove home I was wishing I'd taken a picture of something in the ER to go with D's earmergency story, only because I don't think it is physically possible for me to make a blog entry without including a photo too.
Lucky for me we have a bad dog named Pete who apparently can't even be left alone for a short amount of time in the middle of the night.
This was on the kitchen floor when we got home.
Pete somehow got the crock pot, a gravy packet, AND a 5 pound bag of potatoes off the counter while we were gone.
I guess he was planning to make some stew for his sick daddy.
Should I punish him for that? Nah, maybe I'll just play it by ear for now and decide tomorrow.
OMG. Still funny to me.
