icky-sicky

I think my fever is finally breaking & I'm off to sleep (again) that's all I've been doing since Sunday evening, if it's true that my fever is breaking I'm hoping I can make it to work tomorrow, this is one of the first time I've not been bored of being sick b/c I've literally slept through both days!!

In sad news today I heard from Jim & his grandmother passed away on Sunday and in case that's not bad enough to have to deal with just having started your holiday, his mum had a heart attack at home & he had to do CPR to keep her alive until the medics arrived. As you can guess when he called today he was out of sorts - just kept saying, "Ra, I've done CPR a 100 times, but when it's your mum, it's just your mum" followed by a few sobs (don't tell him I told you that) and then, "Ra you have no clue what it's like to keep your mum alive" to which of course I had no response, since luckily for me, he's right, I've never had to do anything like that. By the end of the conversation I had him laughing a bit & he said he would call if he wanted to talk (not bloody likely seeing as he is a guy and all) So if you have a few extra seconds if you could say a prayer for Jim & his family tonight that would be wonderful.
