ER Visits and Phone Calls

Needless to say, it has been a long weekend. Tater came down with that cold Friday, Tot got it Saturday. Sunday he was doing the 'croupy' cough. Ugh. By 8:30pm last night, I had enough. Nothing was working to help that poor boy. He kept crying and coughing and his nose just would not clear up. Off to the ER. I'm exhausted and really didn't want to go. But knew if I didn't go then, I would be going at 1am.

On the way, I called Bou. I needed a pep talk. She was great. I was able to brag about my hubby... he was great this weekend at helping me. And in trying to remember the good things.

Got to the ER... the good news... blood oxygen was excellent, no noise in his lungs... everything I did helped. Bad news... he has an ear infection. Ended up having to take a long trip to a 24 hour pharmacy. I wanted to start his antibiotics last night. I can't handle two more days of no sleep. One yes, two... would be pushing it.

On the way home from the pharmacy, I realized it was 'early' enough that my mom would still be awake. 11pm my time, is 10pm her time. I called. Not realizing I would probably give her a heart attack calling that late and she has caller id. Oops. Everything got cleared up and we talked about the storm Ernesto. Ahhh... the fun never stops.

Oh... posting will be light the next couple of days. I had stories, but I do not remember one of them. Sigh.

Thank God it was a quick trip. I was so afraid you'd be there until 4AM. Last time Bones had croup, they kept us there so long. The only person I could call to keep myself awake on the road was my friend in Hawaii who is 6 hours behind us. She answered the phone with a "What in the hell are you doing up at 4AM?!!!"

I'm glad he is well... two more years, girlfriend. Love what you have now, but in two more years, life will be so much easier.

Oh dear! You are in my thoughts. Call anytime you just need to chat. Hope you and the boys get that elusive sleep.

Oh good grief! Hang in there! Sorry I missed your call today - I am in the Windy City for no good reason. I'll ring you when I get home....

I do so hope that Ernesto plays nice...

Oh, I've been there too many times & for too many different reasons and so I do empathize. All of You are in my prayers!
