The Best #2 In The West . . .

. . . and the east and the north and the south !

I just want to take a moment to say I Mom #2.

I'm sure you all already know that, but she has gone up and beyond her normal call of duty. Let me give you a run-down of her normal duties: wake up, get dressed, walk towards door while I hand her a pre-packed breakfast and lunch, drive to work, stay there all day doing something (I'm not sure what, but that's another post), come home, have a seat and eat prepared hot meal (courtesy of moi), relax for a couple of hours, shower, go to bed.

Well . . . yesterday I threw my back out. All the way out. It's done. Over. Will not pass go. Will not allow me to collect my $200. I'm flat on my gluteus maximus.

Mom #2 got me up this morning after helping me go potty several times last night; helped me shower; fed me; called several doctors who would accept the uninsured with a same day appointment and would take cash but not too much cash; drove me to my appointment; sat with me for three hours while I cried softly and waited to be "worked in;" took me to get my prescriptions (a yummy narcotic cocktail); drove me home; fixed me something to eat; helped me back into bed; then as a bonus took Baby Boy to a Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournament that I had promised to take him to and is now fixing us all a yummy dinner.

Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it all.

I don't know when I've ever felt so fortunate. She's the bomb!

Until next time . . .

I can sympathize with the whole back thing. It sucks. It's horrible. When it's happened to me, I've been quite sure I'd never walk again.

And I can relate to the wonderful spouse, too. Mine takes wonderful care of me when things have gone wacky with my back. Or even when they haven't.

Hope you feel a lot better soon.

Mom #2 sounds like a real keeper! That is so sweet! You should stick that post in her next Valentine.

Hope you are feeling better soon! I'll wait on bringing the margaritas by until you are done with the pain meds. Don't need to mix those!

((gentle hugs))

WOW, What a great MOM#2 you have!
I hope your back is better soon!
How was Super Smash brothers, I bet Baby Boy had a blast...

Paula said...

Man, I'm sorry to hear about your back!!! Enjoy the medication.

...Yes that was a shell on the beach. It was so pretty, I brought it home....:)

Hope you feel better soon! Take lots of pain meds and REST!

Mom #2 - You rock!

You know those little (or big) arguments where you both say the other has it easy, and practically accuse each other of doing *absolutely nothing* to help the house/kids/finances? Stuff like this really reminds us that even if they don't do it all the time, they can and will do it when it matters.

Here's to a few blissfully foggy days and feeling better afterward.

So sorry to hear you're down and out. But glad to hear Mom #2 is the best.

Hope you are back on your feet again.

Take care.

YAY FOR MOM#2! I'm so glad you've got such good love and support in your life. : ) Feel better soon.


Jason said...

That's so nice! I just love hearing about your family.

I hope your back is better soon. Back pain is positively the WORST.

regularmom said...

Oh, feel better, hon. I've thrown my back out a few times in the past. I know how it hurts.

And Mom #2, you ROCK!

Ouch! I had a chuckle at your statement about Mom #2 going to work to do something. That's what my dh does at work too -- "something" LOL!

Yay for #2 taking care of you. Having a partner come through when you need her, is the best.

Hope you feel better soon.
