I'm beginning to wonder if they give ER discounts to those who come in on a regular basis. You know you have been in the ER a lot when one of the doctors comes in and says "wow, you look so familiar" and then says "wonder were from" I sigh*** and had to reply "here". OK, that's not a good sign. This was Elizabeth's ER doctor from last years Black widow bite. Then the lady who checked us in says "I remember you"....sigh****and I said"yes, from Wesley's chin stitches I believe". All of this taking place while I see in the next room is the doctor who treated Elizabeth and Amanda 2 years ago for their broken ankles...the ones they broke just 1 day apart. As you can see we had to go to the ER tonight AGAIN!
Wesley has now been to the ER 3 times in less than 2 months, not good! The first time for the stitches in his chin, next for sever abdominal pain and cramping (I didn't post about this one it was 3 weeks ago, you know he has major Gi issues and now they believe he has irritable bowel), and again tonight because yet again Wesley got a "huge" cut on his face. Wesley pulled the cord to Madison's lamp on his desk, the lamp had a big glass globe on it. Well, he pulled hard the globe came down hit him on the head broke and cut his face in the process. The cut runs down the right side of his cheek. Guess who his doctor was??? The very same doctor who put in his stitches less than 2 months ago...and yes she remembered us :) This time the cut was very clean and not as deep so they were able to repair it with dermabond. That was good news since he was so upset getting stitches last time. The sad part is no swimming for 7 days, and he just got over his cyst surgery and back to swimming. Poor Wesley has been through it the past 2 months. We got back home around 10:00 PM tonight and now bed is calling :)
So, don't you think they should give ER discounts??? If, not per person how about per family??? Just a thought ;)
Praying that's or last trip to the ER for a "very" long time!!! I'm "very" thankful to have such a wonderful children's hospital near by with a wonderful caring staff.
