Fires, Wasps, and a Trip to the ER

Ok...yesterday just must've been "one of those days." I'm the only one in the office the rest of this week, as the Gregory's are on vacation, so I'm trying to keep things together. Shouldn't be too hard, right? Well, who knew the sky was going to fall? Ok, not literally. Yesterday afternoon while taking my break, found the neighbor's house on fire....I went over to see if I could help the widow lady and make sure she didn't go back inside. She was so upset and beside herself. While waiting with her, I got stung by a wasp. Shouldn't be a big deal, but I had an allergic reaction. Ok, so here I am, the only one here at the shop and my arm is the size of a softball, red, and hurting and I'm getting nauseous. I go inside and take a Benadryl and put some ice on it. Finally 4pm rolls around and I call the doctor...he's not in...great...so they sent me to the ER...great. Just what I wanted to do tonight. They check me out and give me a shot and send me on my way. By 5:30 I'm crashed out leaving Mal to fend for herself. Today is a new day! Let's see what it throws my way....

Hey sis,
Its funny , mom's used to say there would be days like that , but she never said a thing about weeks!..:)
Be that as it may The wife and i will be praying for you and the widow lady that was victimized by fire. Thats always a terrible disaster to go through.
As far as the wasp. My wife can relate, I cant. Mosqitoes swell me up like a wasp should. Wood wasp do hurt though. My wife has an allergy to bees so that makes spring interesting.

Not much going on here. A little bit of rain finally after 2 months. Bad electrical storms , heat thunderstorms as they call them.
But that is the extent of the excitement with the exception of Lissas back issue I emailed you on.
Just keep your chin up, keep markin that calendar....gettin closer sis. we are excited and happy for you both.
God Bless and Keep you
Love yall
John and Melissa

I just wanted to say how much it means to me that someone is reading my blog, and encouraging me through this roller-coaster ride of emotions I've been on lately. And it means so much because I read the ride you are on:) Thank you for loving me. Praying for you always.
