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.
