I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last blog. Dave's finger is healing well, and so is his peace of mind.
The good news is the former female 2IC hadn't left town yet. She was planning on moving with her partner - why the 2IC position became available in the first place. The owners were able to contact her before she left, and thankfully agreed to cover Dave's two days off at the beginning of the week, and he's even getting two night shifts off (still working the lunch).
It's been such a welcome relief for all of us!!
Our beautiful daughter also slept over at her Nan's house last night too, so Dave and I almost feel like we're living a charmed life again. I guess these things work out in the end, even if they test our resolve in the process.
Thank you for thinking of us and your comments were much appreciated during a trying time.
