It was not the worst week ever, but it was still a lot. Some weeks are just like that, nothing goes according to plan. Everything is just a little more chaotic than normal. Then just to top it off, you get a little something to make it just a touch worse.
Tuesday night I took my oldest daughter to the ER, she was coughing badly and having some trouble breathing. We get to the ER around 8 o’clock, there were about 6 people in there. The nurse registered us, got us into see the doctor where they took her vitals. They gave her cough medicine, motrin and a breathing treatment. By this time it was 845, they next took her in for an XRAY at 920. Then we did not see anyone or hear anything for over 2 hours. At 1130 my daughter was asking me to leave, she said she felt better. I asked them when she would be seen, within the next couple if hours. So we left.
Then Friday came along with just a little bit of stress in between. Both my wife and I get sick. Puking all day, feeling like I was hit by a truck. All day Friday being sick, the only thing I ate all day was pretzel sticks. I fell asleep at about 530 and woke up about 730 Saturday morning. Still feeling green I had to go about our day with the family. I ate very little and fell asleep early again. I did feel much better today.
This is after a weekend of arguing with an ignorant parent, this parent pushing as far as they could. I am glad this week is behind me. It does not seem like much, but when you throw in a few therapy sessions making the pain worse on top of this other stuff it seemed much worse. Thank you to anyone who read this.
