It had been a few days so I thought maybe my doing nothing for those days had changed my destiny in terms of the expected bleeding.
20 minutes before I'm supposed head out the door for the one video job I have on the books this month, I feel it. That hot, wet little whoosh. Head off to the bathroom and confirm, the bleeding has started.
I had talked to K about this last night. The logistics I mean. This bleeding is, in theory, nothing more important or difficult to deal with than an average woman's period. So, do I go to work? Or do I call in sick? The plan was to go to work unless I was in some sort of pain or the bleeding was especially heavy.
I'm not following the plan. I live about 15 minutes from the ER. My video shoot is about 45 minutes away, and I'd be coming home at the height of traffic hour, having to fight through Microsoft traffic so it could easily be 2 hours stuck sitting in my car, bleeding. And that's if nothing in particular goes wrong.
I called in and said I had a minor medical emergency. Fortunately, they'll be able to reschedule my shoot for next week so I won't lose the gig. I'm not expecting anything to happen, but I really want to be sitting at home, in my jammies, phone nearby to call someone to take me to the ER in case it does.
So, anything good on TV tonight?
