Frequent Flyer Miles...

...I wonder if the local ER gives them out.  This was the first weekend I was at home in weeks.  Mind you the other weekends I was out were for pleasant enough activities so I'm not complaining about them being busy.  I will say I was looking forward to a weekend with no real plans though.

So much for that.  I spent Saturday afternoon with Calypso in urgent care, which referred us to the ER.  Saturday night was in the ER followed by a repeat visit Sunday night. Proper evaluation and communication from medical staff on Saturday may have prevented Sunday's visit.  Looking over the record on her chart I saw that Sunday night was exactly two years from when she was discharged from the hospitalization which commenced the horror that was her senior year.  There was an unpleasant swirl of emotions associated with that.

Good news is she should theoretically be better in 7-10 days and the nurse and doctor this evening seemed far more thorough than Saturday's crew.

Ack! What awful memories to have prodded. . .

Better in 7-10 days? Yeesh. . . Poor Calypso. That poor girl just seems to have all the little bugs after her.

I will pray. . .

weekend staff in hospital are the D team .. worst possibly time to ever go to an ER .. after Toonman's multiple hospitalizations from end of 2010 through March 2011 I know way too much about both how the ER runs/doesnt run to how to get from the ER to a room in under 8 hrs

I'm not a big fan of unpleasant emotions... especially when they swirl. Hang in there, Calypso!

That girl should be a Doctor herself!!!

Oh no.. I hope she's feeling better by now, at least. Poor Calypso.. and poor you. Hugs.

Proper evaluation and communication from medical staff...

I work at a hospital and even with all the neat email and stuff communications between staff is piecemeal at best.

Oh good grief! Hoping for a speedy recovery and no more visits to the ER (or any doctor!).

What G-Man said. . .

;)

She's already very familiar with the day-to-day workings of the medical system. . .

Damn. Something to do with the past illness, or something new? Whatever the case, prayer is being said right now, and sorry I'm late to this.

Oh, your poor girl (and her parents)! I was just thinking about that cruddy year and how wonderful it is that life moves on...and now you seem to be plunged back into the crap. So sorry.
