So... we ended up getting home shortly before three a.m. -- this is typically when Dakota is done sleeping for the night in her crate, but will usually snooze on the couch with me, so I took her out to potty and then curled up on the couch. She was a good puppy and didn't make a peep. It was the cat who woke me at about 6:45 a.m. with a LOUD complaint that she hadn't been fed yet.
DD woke up about then, too. DH is still in bed.
What a night. I can't believe the wait times for pretty much everyone. Of course, we weren't an emergency, and ambulances were arriving pretty regularly. When DH finally went in to actually get his stitches (about 1:45), he said four ambulances arrived. I knew of two because people came rushing in to find their people. One was an older lady whose 82 y.o. hubby had come in. They were really so sweet to her and escorted her right back. She came out smiling about fifteen minutes later, so I assume everything was okay.
Another was a younger girl, probably 21-ish, who came in and said her friend had arrived via ambulance. I have to assume it was a drunk driving accident or something, because they wouldn't let the girl back until she signed something that said she hadn't been drinking.
For the most part, though, despite the long waits everyone was in decent spirits, so that was good. But, UGH, I was about to take DH home and stitch it up myself.
We won't talk about the rest of the day. It wasn't any better.
So, I have my official release date for the eBook version "One Love For Liv" -- FEBRUARY 12th. The cover artist is checking on the okay for the cover, and as soon as I have that approval, I'll post the cover.
I'm always impressed at how proper and regal Dakota is:
