Guys! Guys!! I have men in my yard working on the septic! It's a miracle! Lets hope they don't dig up any dead bodies or anything. I've never dug in that lot next to us. When we moved here there was this giant old boat and bags of bags of garbage and misc crap all over the place. It took years for the people that lived behind that lot to get that cleaned up (think the neighbor next door actually cleaned up a lot of it). Who knows what is under the ground there.

What's happening today? NOTHING! Which is nice! Still waiting to hear from the septic guy about what day they are going to show up. Tomorrow PG&E is supposed to turn off our power from 9-2. I was going to just go into work once the power goes off but I will not go if they are going to be doing the septic. Hopefully the guy responds soon. What is it with contractors and their lack of communication?
Here is my fancy egg scramble Trevor made us for breakfast yesterday. It was a tad bit salty but A for effort ;) He's making us breakfast right now too. My little chef. Tomorrow evening we are going to do a Zoom meeting with the trade school he wants to go to in WYOMING. The boy has never even been to the snow. I keep telling him it is horrible but he doesn't seem to think it will be haha. Part of me is just like ooo if he moves out I can put my STUFF in one room and sew/work in the other. I think I'd put a twin bed up though for a guest room. Maybe. Might not want to encourage that too much haha. Life will be so weird without any kids here. Is it even possible?

More Days In Waiting
Wohhoo it's a new day. Yawwnnnn
Trevor made me walk 5 miles with him last night so my body is still a bit tired lol.
I guess the septic guy isn't coming today but some day "this week". It will probably be Thursday when PG&E cuts off our power all day to do something. We won't even have any water if they cut the whole club since we are on a well. I was maybe going to just go into work but if they are working on the septic I'll stay home..
Yesterday afternoon Jess went for another ultra sound (she gets extra visits since she has Factor V Leiden like her dad). Look at how squishy the baby is lol I can't wait to actually see his eyes open

Jessica's Baby Shower
Well our drive by baby shower ended up not having so many people actually drivingggg byyy.
Friday, September 18, 2020
Oh my gosh I'm so exhausted.
Last news on my friend Cassi from last night is that she still has the tube, still sedated and in stable condition. Stable. That's a good word.
I'm going to have to try and put that in the back pocket of my brain today. Tomorrow is Jessica's "drive by" baby shower and I need to keep my shit together.
Also today is Aunt Flo kill you day yeahhhh thank's nature.
So while I drink my coffee and watch my cat knock some more shit over I'm going to put my mental list for today down here.
First of all, if there is some kind of natural disaster requiring rain let me just plan some kind of outdoor event. It was fucking raining on the Altamont this morning (hills just west of us). That mo-fo shit better just keep on moving so we have a nice day tomorrow.
Although do you see this? It's the mother effing sky and the SUN!! We haven't seen that in forever.
- wash dishes that everyone else made
- go outside and clean up the tools and piles of brush and tree trimmings (might drag over to field tree, JUST KIDDING, I have my own tree in the back haha
- either go get more ink for my printer or have a child go get it
- at some point Melissa and Daniel's sisters are going to come over to make cupcakes and put favors together.
- start drinking (I really don't drink that much, I've had like 3 drinks in September, mostly Smirnoff Ice which is like fancy punch)
- have nachos for dinner
- clean more shit
- Pass out from exhaustion

Simple Surgery Gone Bad
Guys I'm so upset I just want to throw up.
I took my friend this morning for her outpatient surgery on her shoulder in Fremont, which is like 1 1/2 hours away without traffic. We left at 5:15 this morning and got there around 6:30. She went in at 7 and then I went to go find something to eat for breakfast. I got a call just a bit later to get the equipment she'd need for afterwards (ice therapy thing). I got all that loaded in the car and then just hung close by for when she was done. Around 9 she sent me a message that they had just got the IV in so it would probably be around noon before she was ready to go home. Ok fine I had been venturing out a bit in the area and stuff was finally opening. I hit a few thrift stores and then called around noon to find out how much longer. They said she had just got out of surgery and was in recovery and it would be an hour or two before she was ready to go home. Ok cool I have a time so I can venture out a bit farther puttering around.
About an hour later I got a call from the doctor and he says she was having some breathing issues, maybe related to her asthma. They had to intubate her and were sending her in an ambulance to the hospital so they could take the tube out there and watch her. They said call the hospital in an hour to see if she'd be able to go home or if they were going to keep her over night. Then a little bit later they called and said they forgot to send her personal items with her so I should come pick those up.
So I go pick up her stuff and by that time it's an hour later so I call the hospital. I finally get to a nurse and she's like oh no she's not going home tonight it might be a couple days. I'm like oh well I have her stuff can I get it to her. For sure she'd want her phone in the hospital. She says I can take it to ER entrance and ask for her and someone will come get her so she can come out and get it. I go there and she never comes out and some guy is checking in at the door that he has Covid sympthoms. Great, standing 6' now 7 away from him. A nurse had come out with a patient to load in a car and on her way back in I asked if she knew the nurse and could take the bag to her and she said yes and did. I hope the bag actually made it to her since it had her phone and wallet. Hind sight, probably should have just held on to them.
So then I'm thinking fuck I've got to tell her mom and her kids and I have none of their numbers. her mom just lives down the street from me (she lives with her mom) so of course I can go over to the house but it's going to take me 2 hours to get home. I went through her FB friends and sent all 3 of her girls friend requests. One of them accepted after about 1/2 an hour so I messaged her to call me ASAP. She did so I could tell her what was going on. She gave it over to the oldest who then took over. The oldest lives in San Diego like 8 hours away and the other 2 live in Oregon.
Got home and went straight over to her mom's who was coming out with her purse and keys. I was like you might as well just stay here they are not going to let you in the hospital. Poor thing. I left the giant ice unit thing there with her too.
The oldest girl said that they said she had flash pulmonary edema. Which is where her lungs filled with liquid. So they had to put a tube down her throat so she can breathe. All her vitals were high and they put her on medication to drain the fluid but she has to stay sedated or she won['t be able to breathe. They transferred her to the ICU.
Then later they were trying to get up;dates and they wanted them to give some code to prove they were family. Uh no one was handing out any codes sheesh. I guess they finally got the code. I just got an update that she still has the tube in, and is on medicine to make the liquid in her lungs go away. But she is stable, and they will get another update in the morning.
So now just wait for the next update.Pin It
