Because One Trip Wasn’t Enough

March 8, 2011

I went back to the ER Sunday night.  I thought they might be missing me.  But, even though I saw some of the same nurses who were there on Friday night, and I was still wearing the exact same clothes, they didn’t remember me.  Hmph!

This time it wasn’t all about me- we went for Hayden, who woke up at midnight (seems to be a popular time for a crisis) with croup.  The cough I could handle.  It’s the wheezing that bothered me.  His airway was very constricted, scaring us all.  They took a chest xray to be sure, gave him a cool mist treatment with a mask, and sent us home.  Three hours later.

We spent the rest of the night early morning making trips outside to let the cold, wet air (raining, yes) relax his airway.

We are home from school again today  😐

    […] the midst of an ER visit for me, and another ER visit for Hayden, something possibly far more tragic has happened.  A crisis that was as much physical as it was […]
