Homecoming (R)

Miss Patti is home.

I have had a long day. I got up very early because she wasn't sure when she was getting discharged. Well, after not being able to get a hold of her, I decided to go to hospital and see what the hell was up. She was sleeping. Nice. Anyway, the doctor finally came in and took out all the tubes and whatnot (disGUSTING!) that were in her body draining this and that and went over a few things and then we waited. For hours. I was starving and went down to get something from the little vending station on the ground floor. Junk. All junk. You'd think a hospital would have something of dietary worth but, you'd be wrong. Finally, she had enough and we rang for the nurse. She was very helpful and one, two, three, we were ringing a taxi and off we went to her humble abode. I got her set up in her living room. Luckily she doesn't need to feed now. I won't have to worry about her walking around unnecessarily trying to forage. She had to sit in her chair and do the back massager that she got for herself, that thing is thisclose to having sex with your clothes on. Then, she was beginning to feel some pain so she asked if I would walk to the drug store and fill her 'script.
No good deed goes unpunished.

I walked the two miles to the drugstore, which wasn't bad, I don't really know Absecon so it was a nice way to see the little town and the weather, although cold, wasn't too bitter while the sun was out. I dropped off the 'script and went moseying over to the supermarket.
Then it happened.
I saw my bloody ex-boyfriend. I haven't seen him in a very long time.

Anyway, I got back, after downing half the Tylenol w/Codeine (joking but, I really wanted to), sat with her for a while and made sure she had everything she needed. She had gotten changed whilst I was gone so, I am taking that as her being pretty self-sufficient, and then took the train back to Atlantic City. I have been on the go since 8:30am and I won't be getting any sleep until well after 6:00am because I have to work tonight.

  1. You've been a bit quiet this weekend so I'm reading older entries.
    Hmmm ... You left out the part about the x boyfriend in the other cafe.

    I guess you are getting fewer comments here because of your new comment moderation control, what's up with that anyway?

    We should be the ones screening you not the other way around. LOL

    BTW ... who's in the photo?
