Could someone make me a cuppa....well tea wouldn't do right now. I would have titled this thread "One Flu over the Cuckoos Nest" .......It is April Fools Day and I have been knocked upside the head with a plate of are you kidding me? Court at 1:00, but I hear hubs truck coming up the road at 9:30. He is supposed to be at work. He walks in the door shivering and ashen faced. Uh oh. Enter the swirly whirly. Hubs has health issues, so now on top of everything else brewing, this. We can't do anything the easy way. Hard already.....lets just add something else...... Long story short, I was ready to take hubs to emergency, 103.6 temp, but got it down too 100.2. Hokus boyfriend came over to keep an eye on hubs. Went from almost not making it to court, to hightailing it down there. I am a bit frazzled. Rain did show up, with another street friend. I kept conversation to a minimum, but told her I was proud of her for showing up and being brave. Sitting on the hard wooden benches outside of the courtroom. It was awkward. Last time I saw her was not pleasant. But there we were. She is my daughter, and she needed support. The DV prosecutors advocate was the first to appear. I asked my daughter if she wanted me to stay with her, she did. We went into the witness room and the prosecutor came in and went over the three incidences and Rains statement, explained how it would go. I was numb. Rain was bereft and quiet and miserable. We waited to be called into the courtroom. It was agonizing.
