My day in the ER
Posted 23 June 2012 - 04:23 PM
I took her to the ER.
They gave her something for the pain and vomiting and did some test.
Because she is a recovering addict she had a reaction to some of the meds and still had pain so they gave her something for the reaction and pain.
This made me I realize that I need to make up a bag just for going to the hospital with money for vending machines and a book in it.
They said she had a ruptured cyst.

meds you might have to take if the ER visit lasts for hours and hours
and make sure it's an easy-read book you already know you'll enjoy but not have to focus too hard...while worried.
Just been there, doing that at the ER a couple wks ago. Fortunate, I was one of 2 folks there.
Hope your DD is feeling better!!!!

Yes, one of the things I keep our bags for is medical emergencies. Doesn't matter what the emergency is, flood, fire, medical or family, the bags are ready and I don't have to think about getting them packed.
A Kindle would be good to have, I think. You could keep it loaded with a lot of books.
"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. " Eph 5:15,16

Have you hugged your goose today?

I often thought about having a bag ready in case I would have to go to the hospital myself. Since I live alone, my son would have to bring me things but I'd have to tell him where everything is and it's hard to tell what I'd end up with. A little overnighter with some undies, gowns, slippers, grooming and a book or two (before he finds the Kindle) would be helpful to both of us.
You can't always get what you want, babe
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You get what you need.
