A Trip to the ER and Kindness From a Stranger

Sorry there was no Art on this Blog yesterday





Well, it happened again....


The people who work in the Emergency Room should be on a first name basis with us.

        we know where the best snack machines are
                           
                                                  source


                        and the cleanest bathrooms.

now if we could only figure out how to change the channel on the Waiting room TV.......but I digress.


As you know My mom fell and was badly hurt in Sept. and thank God she is a trooper. Her Achilles tendon had detached and recently she was able to take off the huge boot and wear sneakers...(something she hates, because according to her they are not ladylike...ugh)

Anyhoo Yesterday the therapist did not like the way her leg looked....

           Off to the doctor...the Nurse practitioner wanted us to go to ER
               then off to the ER where a vascular surgeon would take a look.

There is nothing like a Friday in the ER. It was jammed packed with injuries and heart related emergencies...God Bless those Nurses and Doctors. How they keep their composure is beyond me. 

Finally, my Mom was seen by the Doctor and He didn't seemed worried , but he wanted to run some tests...just in case.

As we waited for what seemed like forever for tests and results...a man who was waiting for tests/results too sat across from us.

He looked at me and my Mom and said...


          "It's hard isn't it? Don't worry this weekend is going to be great."


Now, I know he was probably trying to cheer us up or maybe he was talking about the weather, .....but since I'm getting baptized this weekend It kind of made me smile and answer...



                                      "Yes, It will be."



A few minutes later the Doctor came over and said there were no blood clots that they could see in my moms leg.


       Thank You God for your blessings
                                 
          and for the sweet words of someone who took the time to care

  3. I'm so sorry you are making these trips, but I totally understand. Since my fall last month, I've been in the emergency room four times. I can relate. Too bad we aren't at the same hospital, we could visit.

    I'm glad your mom is ok on this last visit.

    Blessings on this weekend and your baptism.

    1. LOL! Yes too bad it wasn't the same hospital! We could gorge ourselves with chips and ding dongs from the vending machines! Thank You for your good wishes!

  4. Oh my gosh! I am so sorry about all this! I have had experience with weekend visits to the E.R., it is total chaos. So glad your mom is O.K., though. How wonderful about your baptism! And I don't think your mom's good report is a coincidence on this of all weekends. Just something to let you know that God is with you...It's Ginny, but I had to sign I.n with an old password, that's why my name says something else!
