2 Hours of Sleep...

That's what Marcus and I have been operating on today. Marcus has had an intense pain in his left side for the past several days which is impeding his ability to function. He went to the doctor yesterday and the doctor ordered blood tests and an ultrasound but said in the meantime if it got worse go to the ER.

So around 1am it was worse and off Marcus went to the ER. Unfortunately, Eli heard Marcus leave and he came sobbing into my room "daddy, dadddy, daaaaaaaaaaaadddddddddddddddddyyyyyyyyyy." It was very dramatic.

After a bit I got him back in bed, but then I couldn't sleep. I was worried about Marcus and despite all efforts no sleep for me.

I finally fell asleep from 5-6, but at 6 Eli woke up again crying, which then woke up Emerson, and they both found their way to my bed. I was too tired to care at this point and since Marcus still wasn't home I just let them stay. Of course I was awake again.

Marcus was at the hospital for 6 hours before he saw a doctor. Then he saw a doctor for 2 minutes, she prescribed some pain meds and sent him home. He arrived home around 7:30 we both dozed until 8:30 when I had to get up and go to a meeting in another city.

Very good times today. I had a little bit of a second wind earlier but I'm starting to fade again.

Marcus is still in pain and I really hope Eli sleeps through the night.

(In my exhaustion I almost ended this blog post with "Amen" before I caught myself).
