So yesterday I had to take my father to the doctor in Boston, not the primary care but a specialist he sees very regularly. He had said he “didn’t feel good” which isn’t unusual because he has never been very good at actually describing symptoms. After a brief visit the nurse practitioner came out to my mother and I and said that she wanted him to go to the ER and be admitted. He’s got a lengthy list of issues he neglected to mention to my mother. I had not set my day up to handle that kind of delay. My brain kept saying “You’ll be hours in the ER, maybe even days”. As it turned out things worked out pretty well which is always nice when things don’t go as planned. He was settled into a cube in the ER when I had to run and pick up N and H. I could then leave her in charge of homework, dinner and general oversight until The Husband got home from work while I went back to see what progress had been made. Shortly after my return he was moved to a regular room with a plan of attack. He’ll have some tests today and then we’ll know what’s what. Through all this I had my sock. My plain old soothing stockinette sock knit in Regia silk color in color 184.
