Good morning happy Wednesday!
OMG who is exhausted? Raises both hands ME ME ME
Just as I sat down to work yesterday Jess asked me to drive her to the hospital, she was having really bad stomach pains and throwing up bile all night. I'm like ugh sounds like the gall bladder. Of course since she is pregnant she was so worried she was going to have a miscarriage. I drove her to the hospital and actually got pulled over on the way for not fully stopping at a dumb light that is on the way that has no cross traffic. I was like on the way to the hospital, kid doubled over with pain, officer is like ok just be careful! Sheesh. I think we hit every fucking light on the way there. At least 10.
We get to the ER and they actually let me go in with her after showing my vaccination card. The check in nurse was a real cold bitch and they sent her in the lobby to wait. Can you imagine if you were having a miscarriage and they made you wait in the lobby for 2 hours? At one point they took her to get some blood work and the security guard asked me to try to calm her down. I was like she's having major anxiety and is in a lot of pain, if they don't want people to hear her maybe they should take her in the back? She was like if she doesn't calm down she'll have to wait outside. You're going to make someone who thinks they are having a miscarriage wait outside? That would be some great news articles. TG that didn't happen but I am thinking of writing a letter complaining.
I had asked the triage nurse if she could go to maternity to make sure the baby was ok and they said no only if you are 20 weeks (she's 12).
Someone eventually came and took her for an ultra sound of the baby but wouldn't tell her anything. She even told the woman that she was scaring her not saying anything and she told her she wasn't allowed to say anything. Then she gave her a picture of the baby. I told Jess the baby must be ok or she wouldn't have given you the picture.
Here is our little bean! Looks like it's wearing a ninja turtle mask and smiling and waving haha.
