Daddy was fantastic at handling medical emergencies. He was unbelievably cool under pressure if, say, someone had cut off their arm or leg with a chainsaw. But he simply wasnt equipped to handle the kind of emergencies that seemed to crop up whenever I was around. He could cope beautifully with every kind of chaos, except the kind I created. And right now he was stuck. He couldnt work with me or without me.
I felt for him. It was a good thing I was only going to be subbing in this job for two days. If I stayed a week, hed end up sharing a room with Momma in the cardiac ward.
