Home alone... - Elf M. Sternberg
Home alone...
I'm sitting at home, waiting for the oven to preheat so I can put the cashew chicken on a bed of pineapples and rice into the oven to bake. I'm watching both girls alone because Omaha is in the emergency room.

She says she's fine. She also says she's experiencing unexplained chest pain that radiates to her back and is not alleviated by any physical action, consumption or motion. It's mild, and she insists that she's fine, that there's no panic, that she's in the waiting area for a doctor.

The girls don't understand what "unexplained chest pain" means. They're running about and laughing and giggling. I've called Yamaarashi-chan's mother to tell her that the day's schedule might be a little wonky. And I'm just... here. Wondering if there's anything I can do. Hoping she's okay.

Current Mood: worried worried
Current Music: The Marketplace jingle

I hope everything works out for the best, and she's home soon to ease your mind. *Hugs offered if you want them*

*hugs* Our thoughts and well-wishes to all you folks over there. We're thinking about you.

Keep us posted.

She seemed all right earlier this afternoon when I was over to collect the bulk of my stuff. I don't recall her mentioning any pain, except to say that her back had been troubling her somewhat.

It would take us a while to get there, but would you like us (riverheart and me) to come kid-sit while you go to the E.R.?

I appreciate that, Charles. If I need help, I'll scream. Right now, I think we're taking care of everything. I can manage two little girls on my own; it's only if the feces gets loose in the Fizzy Lifting Factory that I'll start to panic.

It's the not knowing that just makes me worry.

What charlesks said. We'll drop everything and run.

Aww.. shoot. That utterly sucks (udderly sucks? Got milk?) and I wish to lend any intangible support you will accept.

In Light,
