Day 10 - Just a Swangin'

I'm not sure why this phrase has been in my head lately. There's definitely no swangin' going on in my household. Larry has his CT scheduled for this afternoon. Hopefully, the staffs of all the doctors are on the same page and this will give us some news. My brain is just so tired of all of this. I know this sounds harsh, but I just don't do well playing the sympathetic wife, or person for that matter, for long periods of time. I want to know what's going on and I want it to be handled. This limbo shit if for the birds. I know these things take time, but I am just so done already and it's only been two weeks.

I remember when Peyton had a nasty sinus infection a couple years ago that we just couldn't get to go away, and I felt the same then. The constant fevers, no clear cut answers from the doctors and the never ending worrying just drove me crazy. I rememeber thinking, I just couldn't handle it if one of my kids had a chronic condition. I give all the credit in the world to the parents who have to deal with long term illnesses and things of that nature.

Patience is a virtue and one that I do not have.

Me, either, Erika. I have no patience for stuff like this. I am always grouching about medical slowness. Ay, the slowness! Everybody is SO. DAMN. SLOW!
