My 'normal' Tuesday has yoga and volunteering in E's classroom. Every couple of months, I also have a PTA meeting on Tuesday morning. This morning, my FIL needed an MRI. I think he's probably getting better, but when everyone told him that if he was still in pain in a few days he should see someone, that's what he did.
He had to take some strong pain meds because laying flat on his back is very painful right now -- so he needed a driver. It wasn't that challenging for me. I sat and read a book while he was in the machine. Then I took him to the store (he rode one of those motorized carts), and then I took him back to his house. All told, it was about three hours -- and although I missed yoga and E's class, it was not a problem for me to do.
My FIL is very independent, and I think it surprised him that DH and I told him we had this covered. We don't live close (about 30 minutes away -- all highway), and he usually assumes he'll handle everything by himself. My dad is the same way, and I wonder how that will go when they're both 20 years older...it'll be hard for both of them to lose any of that freedom and autonomy.
How about you? Do you have a day of the week that always seems to fill up more than the others?
