We've had a very long day. We took Brian for his 1 week post op appointment. He's lost 27 pounds total! (about 10 since he had the surgery) He isn't at 100% yet, he's tired and in some pain but apparently that is normal. Just today he has started having shoulder pain which is totally common for this surgery.

After Brian's appointment we took Molly to her's. We saw a different doctor this time and I think we finally found someone who knows their stuff. I'm going to always ask for Dr Zae from now on. Anyway she says Molly has eczama. I should use hydrocortisone cream on her until her splotches clear up and I should rub her down with Crisco twice daily. I should only give her one quick lukewarm bath a week. Also, she thinks that Molly's diaper rash is a yeast infection so now we are using an antifungal cream for that. Molly has an appointment with a dermatologist on Monday.

We stopped at Costco to get gas and when I tried to start the car back up I couldn't get the key to turn. It took me a good 15 minutes of jiggling the key before it started. We had this happen once more before Brian and I finally decided that this was not a good thing and that we should take it straight to his brother's mechanic before we got stranded somewhere. We got almost all the way home before we decided to stop at Start Mart to get an estimate on a new ignition beause we really didn't want to have to go all the way to Butch's house. Plus we had taken our cars to Start Mart in the past for new alternators and we were very happy with the service and price. Anyway I told the mechanic what was wrong with the car and he came out and turned the car off. Of course we couldn't get it started again (after trying for about an hour). By that time they were closed and the mechanic went home. I tried to have AAA tow it but they said they couldn't tow it until they spoke with the Start Mart owner to verify that we didn't owe them money and that they couldn't fix it. That mechanic better not even try to say that he can fix this or I will kick him in the nuts. Thank goodness we were less than a half mile away from home but it was cold, dark and raining so it was a miserable 1/2 mile. Poor Brian had already over done it for the day and hadn't had his pain meds in a long time so the walk was torture for him.

The bitch of this story is that Ford knows that their ignitions are faulty. Hell, their mechanic admitted it to me. They aren't doing a recall on them though since it isn't a safety concern. Bastards.

The car is fixed, I picked it up this afternoon. I'm glad that little bit of drama is done and over with, now I can go back to obsessing over the surgeries.

Our car is still not home. The mechanic needed to special order a fuel pump for it. Brian mananaged to get a ride down to Kent today (because we thought it would be done) and ended up having to borrow his brother's car to come home. That means he'll have to take another trip down to Kent tomorrow or Friday. Joy.
