Little Bug

Sorry I haven't been around, well because I haven't been around. Yesterday I went to class and thought about Sammy the whole time. I looked at the clock and added up how long he'd been in surgery. It was both frustrating and comforting to only be five minutes away. When I arrived he was still in surgery but almost done. And I was only going to stay until 7:30 but I waited on the promise he'd be able to be visited soon. I stayed and saw him and it was worth it. I got home around 10:45 and decided to do my homework today instead of in a haze last night.
I took off work and finished my paper due in class today. I went to the hospital after class. And once again I was only going to stay until 7:30. But he was awake at times and so hard to leave. I talked Erika into going to the food court with me and we ate and then I headed home. A good plan until I realized I had forgotten to get my parking ticket back from her. So I walked back to the hospital, back up the elevator and back past security to retrieve it. I arrived home after 11. So sleep now for me. No time to read but I will catch up on the weekend. Being at the hospital is more important.
