So I've got this idea that I want to go into Nursing, and in order to do that I need to take some science prerequisites. This semester my hubby agreed to pay for the Chemistry course, and right now I almost wish he hadn't! I spent the entire weekend studying for tonight's test, didn't get much done in the way of exercise and almost NO housework - and BOY, can you tell! Plus, my older girl's stepkids were over yesterday for a few hours, but did I get to play with them? NOOOOO, I had to STUDY!!!
And of course my diet's been crappy lately, which helps explain why my weight is up 2 lbs. I BETTER do well on this test tonight!

I've been out of the loop since Monday night. My 15-year-old Margaret, who NEVER gets sick, got sick Monday. She said she didn't feel like going to school, but I honestly thought she was having menstral cramps, so I sent her. Later she had a fever and stomach pains. My hubby took her to Baptist ER. I had a chemistry class to get to, but I asked if I needed to skip it. He said no, but they were still there when class was over so I went there. We were there until after midnight, and the Dr. took a CAT scan of her abdomen to rule out appendicitis. He said she was fine, the pain was probably an ovarian cyst, and to see her regular doctor in the morning.
So I decided to stay home with her Tuesday, to catch up on sleep and make the appt. However, we got a call from Baptist ER, saying they found something else & we should come back. Margaret was admitted Tuesday night, and her appendicts came out Wed. morning. And I've been there ever since, coming home tonigt to once again get some sleep. My hubby is staying with her tonight. She's running a fever, and staying there until the fever goes away. I'm sure I'll be back up there tomorrow. Needless to say, I've been eating on the run & not exactly exercising. I'm sure Margaret will be okay - she's in good hands, but a Mom can't help but be worried. I just wanted to check in with everyone - haven't fallen off the Earth, just been taking care of my daughter.
