Well, I am sorry that I have been missing around here the last few days. I ended up on the wrong side of an IV. I prefer to be the one starting the IV not the one getting one. Despite being an IV infusion nurse and giving shots and starting IV’s all day, when it comes to me getting stuck with needles I am a HUGE baby!
Unless I am getting paid to be there, I avoid the hospitals like the plague!!! So, I had to be pretty terrible to be willing to go to the ER. I will spare the details, but I started having unbelievable abdominal pain out of nowhere and ended up in the ER. Of course it is the week of Thanksgiving and I have a million things to do! Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!!!
Despite having no answers as to what caused such terrible pain, the ER doctors and nurses were great. I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband to take care of me, and a supportive family to help with my kids in the middle of the night. I am also thankful that I am feeling mostly better now and should be able to enjoy Thanksgiving tomorrow.
