ER

Back to the ER again. Let me tell you about my lovely evening last night:

4:45 - Nurse C calls and tells me I need to bring L's stubborn ass to the doctor, because his fever was approaching 104!

4:50 - Tell my boss L is pretty sick and I'm taking him to the ER. Call MIL to see if she can keep baby N.

5:00 - Arrive home, change and bring L to the hospital.

5:15 - Arrive at shitty hospital(although they had a good doctor that night). Argue with nurse who INSISTS it's ok for L to take motrin, although his nephrologist(sp? kidney doctor said NEVER take anything with ibuprofin, since he has only one kidney remaining.) The nurse still insisted he knew more than a kidney specialist in Houston.

5:20 - Brought to exam room, new nurse brings L tylenol, which is good, cause if they'd had given him motrin, I would have refused to pay!

5:30 - Doctor arrives, orders blood work, urinalsys, and chest X-rays

6:30 - Tests come back good, but L was vomiting and had pain in his right side, so doctor ordered IV fluids and cat scan.

8:45 - Cat scan results fine, must have virus, gives two shots and prescription.

9:00 - Arrive home, put baby N in crib, let him throw a tantrum about not wanting to go to sleep, shower, and crawl in the bed in baby N's room(trying to keep baby N away from L)

12:30 - Baby N wakes up screaming. Changed diaper. He carries on about 10 minutes.

2:00 - Baby N wakes up crying

4:00 - Baby N wakes up crying.

6:00 - Alarm, time to get ready to go back to the hellhole.

6:30 - Make L's breakfast(so he will take his tylenol), feed baby N(hoping not to get him sick). Hear knocking at my front door. Scream that I'll be there in a minute, then the doorbell rings. I holler again to hang on. Pull out baby N's feeding tube and answered the door for MIL. God bless her. She said she'd stay until nurse C gets here around 9.

7:05 - Leave for work, grab breakfast and caffiene(coke).

7:45 - Blogging about my hell night.

I hope the day goes better, and that I stay healthy and get some needed sleep!

Oh, how could I forget. I haven't been keeping up, but casually glanced at my calender. Today is CD 30. Sorry, will not buy pee stick until at least Friday if AF doesn't show. I hope the Endo isn't back or my cycles are screwing up again.

    Terrible night. Thank God it wasn't his appendix. Those are the symptoms I had when mine blew. Hope you get some rest soon.
