Mum in hospital, boyfriend to A and E
Tuesday, September 04, 2012
Well, I have had a busy day.
I got a text around 10.30 from my mum saying that she was in hospital. Her cold wasn't getting better so she went back to the doctor who sent her straight to the hospital to rule out pneumonia. Luckily work was really understanding and sent me to be with her. All the tests have come back negative, so she is just in being observed and she can come home tomorrow.
While I was at the hospital my boyfriend called me and said that I shouldn't panic but he cut his finger making dinner (to put in the crockpot) and it wouldn't stop bleeding. Left mum in the hospital, went to get the boyfriend and took him to the accident and emergency centre. Only a minor injury, but he needed a tetanus injection and a dressing.
Whew. Luckily everyone is safe and sound tonight. Very lucky to live in a country with such awesome (free!) medical care!
It goes without saying that my eating wasn't awesome today. I took my morning tea to the hospital, so I had a banana there. Picked up sushi for lunch. Dinner was in the crockpot, so no major there. I tried millet for the first time, which is minor compared to the rest of the day, but it was yummy. Managed to get to the gym for a quick weights session. I am sore from kickboxing, mainly in my back.
Now I have to organise a little bit for tomorrow, and then I can relax!
