Ed's BAK journey came to an end this morning. He is home resting now, I am here with him, working from home so I can take him to the doctor around 3:30p. His knee is swollen and is at the point where he can't bend it or move it without pain. He can't drive since it is his right knee, time to play nurse! I don't mind, work has been intense it's nice to work from a quiet house.
Needless to say he is bummed... beyond bummed. But I'm proud of him, he biked more than 250 miles in five days, that my friends is impressive. Later on Ed will have a report on his final day, when he feels up to writing it! He is a trooper and rode through five days of pain and exhaustion and wind and rain (today was the rain). And hopefully later we'll have a report from the doctor on what is going on with his knee. It's all spongy, I want to keep squishing it, but that wouldn't be nice. Although he is sleeping now, he'd never now... it feels so weird, so tempted, maybe just a little squish...
This day has been.... wow. Not only with the Ed thing, but everything has felt like a mess. Just one of those days. You never know when you'll have them. I found out just about an hour ago the university I teach for had sent me the wrong schedule, instead of teaching Thursday nights like I was under the impression I was doing, I had a call today saying a student wanted to talk to me before class tonight. And I was all... wait... W...T....F??! Because I thought I was teaching Thursdays. Oh no, apparently I have to teach Wednesdays from 5:30 - 10p opposed to Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30p, minor difference. This will make going and picking up Ed's bags tonight from a town that is an hour and a half away, when he can't drive, a bit challenging.
On top of that, we live in a house built in 1930, our breaker box was updated sometime in the 70s, it was a bit on the fritz last summer, the breakers would flip occasionally when the A/C was running full force, nothing horrid or immediate. Well that all changed, the last few hot and muggy days have proven too much for our wimpy old school breakers and it will only stay flipped on for about five minutes. Which means... yep.... no AC. At least it is overcast and rainy today, so all the windows are open, but everything feels damp.
I know things could be worse, so I'm not too bummed out, just feeling a little rushed and overwhelmed. In fact a friend at work is dealing with much worse, a good friend of hers flipped his four-wheeler last night and is very critical condition, things are not looking good at all for this young father, it was a really horrible accident, they aren't hopeful he will make it. So sad.
What a day.
