The day could have been tragic. While it was upsetting and stressful, I have a lot to be grateful for. Mom survived surgery and is recovering. I spent the day waiting with my dad and sister, and the time together was good. Despite being cut short, I was able to sneak in some time gaming with one of my oldest friends on his birthday. It was a great reprieve from an otherwise stressful day. I even received kudos for my efforts at work.
The only thing to do with that shot glass is fill it with something tasty and drink deep. I deserve it.
