I'm going to take a break today.

I posted yesterday about the chaos in my life. The second I hit post and slipped into the tub with a bath bomb my mother called asking me to come pick up my dad so she could go to the doctor. What makes that exciting (except not at all) is that my dad also cannot walk. He had his knee removed in early May. I had 3, yes THREE grown people in my care with mobility issues. It became a sideshow where all I could do was shake my head and wonder if this was real life.

Dad and husband. Count the walking aids in this picture. We have crutches, walker, wheelchair, and knee scooter.

Until your mom gets on it and tries to become the 4th non walker in the house. Holy hell, woman!

So today I'm throwing in the towel, getting them situated, then taking my butt out to the pool. Don't fall while mama's gone!

*Everyone in these pictures with the exception of my husband has had VSG. My mom is the only one that came out unscathed. She rocked it like a champ despite eating onion rings and chili cheese fries 8 days after surgery. My dad, daughter, and I all had complications.
