I lost $600


Yep you read it right, WifeBlah lost $600 by not going to work tonight. But hey, I don’t have any regrets. My father’s sleep is priceless. I missed work, and the next time I will miss work there will be some consequences. We are only allowed to have two unplanned absences.

I was not able to go to work , because I need to bring my father to a specialist since his primary doctor cannot figure out what’s wrong with him. Now that he gets medications that are working, he was able to sleep tonight. He’s not been sleeping for days, and his sleep is disrupted for the last month because of itchiness and rashes all over his body causing him to scratch and make wounds.

Losing $600 dollars is worth it, because my father’s relief from itchiness and sleep are priceless. This is what I always say family first. The reason why I go to work is because of them, so they will come first before work.

Also, coming to work without sleep is unfair to my patients. My patients come first at work, and me going to work not 100% ready is making me prone to errors.

Now we are waiting for the biopsy result to see what’s really causing the problem. Sorry been very busy with life lately. I will write more soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, I am looking forward to Memorial Day Sales ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ God Bless you all!

    money means NOTHING and jobs are just that (A JOB) which means they are a dime a dozen no matter what the owners or supervisors think.
    Family always comes 1st!
    I have just been going through a few heated arguments with my boss for similar reasons. I know I could get fired over my temper but I told him to go his way and I would go mine and just ignore each other or he could walk me out but since nobody can do my job I bet that wasn’t going to happen.

      Sorry for responding late. I was working for the last 2 nights, and yesterday I was sleeping the whole day and night. That’s the thing your boss value you, because he can’t find anybody that can do your job. Unlike me, we nurses are disposable ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ They can get anybody out there because there’s a lot of nurses available and knows how to do the same thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t believe how absolutely unsympathetic your boss is being. It’s not like you are out gallivanting, you are looking after your sick father. Some people just don’t care, they can be so unkind. Well, for what’s its worth, you have my full support. It sounds like your doing a great job and your right, family should always come first, in this case your father must be number one priority. Sending you all the love in the world and fingers crossed๐Ÿคžthe results of the biopsy, will be okay.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’š Lyndsey.

      Thank you so much for dropping a comment. Really appreciate it. Sorry for the late response. For the past few nights I was working. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the sad part of being a nurse, most hospitals are very strict with their absences. In our hospital it is a policy that we can only have two absences a year. To avoid accumulating these absences you will need a doctor’s note or something, but the problem with me I was not the one sick. It’s my father. But you know, it is okay ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s really nothing I can do about it. The most important thing is my father is getting better. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Aw, it’s my pleasureโคand I understand, its probably very rare you get time to yourself let alone responding to your blog. Regarding work, It’s such a shame they can’t make an exception in your case, but like you said it’s okay, your right, there’s no point in stewing over it if it’s not gonna change anything. You just concentrate on being as happy as you can be, it must be tough, I bet your exhausted but that’s wonderful news regarding your father it must be a huge relief.

        Thank you so much for the concern regarding my father’s situation. Really appreciate it. Looks like working in a big company taught me one thing – once you don’t comply with the policies you’re done. There’s no personal relationship between an employer and an employee in big companies, and that’s how it is. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I believe you definitely made the right decision here! As someone mentioned above, money is money. Money holds no value if it isn’t a basis for something greater, such as for your loved ones. I hope the biopsy result turns out okay, your father comes back in good health, and your job situation is okay! โค

        You’re absolutely welcome! And I definitely will try. I need to take care of myself more than I do, I’m kind of in a place of despair psychologically, but that doesn’t mean I should allow myself to slip there as a whole. Thank you ^-^

    It’s worth it – you only and can only have one father. But you can find another job just as they can find another employee.
    I’m an advocate of people skipping work but I’m an advocate of people recognizing priority.
    Be encouraged!
