Family should come first

Let me start this by saying my FIL is in the hospital, again. The sad part of the whole thing is it was his own fault. Fearing a dependence on pain-killers, he decided, without speaking to his physician, that it would be a good idea to take himself off of the percocet prescribed to him only 2 weeks after surgery and instead load up on aspirin. Of course the result being that he started bleeding out through the ulcers in his stomach. Today was his second day in the hospital on a strictly liquid diet and it looks like he will be there for at least 2 more.

The reason I said family SHOULD come first is that I was very aggravated by having to add a hospital visit to my schedule today. I had intended to do my daily ritual, Facebook, Twitter, Etsy, Blog, then have some fun making my daughter a dress with some beautiful fabric I bought. Now with this new wrinkle I was lucky to have the time to photograph my new stuff! I am not mad at him, and I did go visit because I do care, I am just fearful that if I slow down for even a moment I will lose the momentum I have been working so hard on.

So its back to work, helping my daughter with her homework and then cooking dinner.
