Well, I just got off the phone with my step mother and she said that they went to the urologist today.  They took the catheter out and if he couldn't pee on his own, he was supposed to go back by 4:00 to have another one reinserted.  He refused to go back even though he hadn't peed on his own.  After hearing some graphic information from my step mother, I can't say that I blame him. Don't read if you don't want the grusome details ) Anyway, he is still straining to try to pee and he is so tired and in so much pain that he didn't even want to talk to me.  I could hear him in the background  telling my step mother that he just couldn't talk to me, and he sounded so pitiful and sad.  It was all I could do not to cry.  It's sad when the catheter and its removal causes more pain than the major surgery that precipitated its need in the first place.  The knee is doing well.  He is walking around on his own, even going up steps, slowly.    The knee is fine, but the rest isn't.

In other news, I am really irritated with one of the counselors at work.  She is constantly sending people to me to ask questions that she should be able to answer.  She is choosing to not answer because she is either "too busy" (what?  like I am sitting around twiddling my thumbs?) or because she doesn't think that those questions are counseling related.  What am I chopped liver?  If there were any questions to which she didn't know the answer, it would best serve her to ask me herself in case she gets that question again.  She hasn't done  that.  I am very frustrated because I have put myself on the line for her and have tried to champion her when needed.  She seems to have given up though.  She knows that the odds of her having a job next year are extremely slim since she is one of the most recent hires.  It's hard to motivate someone who has no vested interest.  What can I do to her as a reprimand, give her a bad evaluation?  It's not like a shining one would save her job since they are cutting so many faculty members.  It's just frustrating.

Okay, I just sent my sister an update about our father.  Her response was that she didn't know that he had the urologist appointment today.  Never mind that I told her that three different times.  She didn't even think to call him because she couldn't remember that.  Not that you could convince me that she would have called even if she had remembered.  This from the person that says that my father favors me and doesn't love her as much.  Actions speak louder than words ever could in this case.  Yeah, I'm the favorite.  How about I just give a shit about my father and get my head out of my own ass to call him?  Favorite?  Bull shit!

EDIT:  Sorry.  Serious PMS-ing going on that just makes things worse.
