Time to vent

I am feeling kind of overwhelmed right now.
-My father is in surgery and I am stuck at my desk at work. It is minor surgery, but still I am feeling distracted by it
-My wife had an allergic reaction to Blistex (and WTF is that all about anyway) and took herself to the emergency room where she got a steroid shot and was told to take Benadryl.
-My boss just told me that he is adding a second ongoing account to my job duties and that I am now going to have to be available for an extra 2 hours a day 5 days a week. Oh, and the account is for a specialty that I have never worked on before and requires me to learn a whole new software. And my original account is adding 3 doctors over the next 2 months which will be adding an additional 10-15 hours of work per week with them. And I am not getting any bump in pay for this to go along with my $2400 / year deductible POS health "insurance"
The funny thing is, I actually want to go for a walk at lunch and clear my head, but it is raining so I can't even do that (not to mention that I have to stay by my phone so that my mother can call me w/any updates on my father so that I can update the rest of the family.
I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop but it feels like 5 or 6 have already all dropped at once. Am I dealing w/an octopus here?
