So my mom went back to work on Monday of this week after being off for about four months. She was happy but hesitant to go back. She told me that she wasn't sure if she would have the skills anymore. She's been with the company for more than 20 years.....she has the skills.

So off to work she went on Monday. She's working half days this week and going to full days next week. Everything has been going smoothly until she calls my little sister today and says that her right leg keeps going numb and she can't walk. BUT DON'T TELL YOUR SISTERS. I just want you to know in case I have to have you pick me up from work because I can't drive.

WTF. Not tell your sisters. So of course my sister calls me, I call the doctor and find out that mom has already called him. In the notes it says that he has called her back, but the nurse isn't sure what he said or if they even talked. The nurse said that it was imperitive that mom speak with the doc, so if they haven't chatted, have her call him back.

I relay the info to sister, and she emails ME AND MY MOM with this:

Mom – can you call Dr. Greenfield? He wants to talk to you. You might have to go in today. I can pick you up from work if you need. And I told Jessie and Katie – because they need to know. We all care about you and want to know what’s going on!!

Love you!

Daughter -
I am at work but had to call the Dr,. because my right foot keeps going numb.  I will let you know if I need you. Please do not say anything to Katie or Jessie yet since it is probably just that I am so out of shape. Please reply to this email if you will be able to pick me up at work if needed.  I am waiting for the Dr,. to call.

Love you

This truly made my heart smile. My little sister standing up to my mom! So I guess we'll play the waiting game now and see what the numbness is all about. Just so very tired of my mom doing the whole divide and conquer thing. It's fucking annoying.
