Remember, each week I post pictures from the non-crafty side of life - - -
My preschooler fractured her elbow. It took hours and hours from our existence!!
First off, she fell off her scooter. On Thursday. When she would whine about it, I just figured she was, well, whinning. But come Friday, when she still wouldn't use it, I thought there might actually be a real problem. Who knew!
Here's the fake arm wrapping I gave her when she was whinning - you know, her "my arm still hurts", me "oh, let's just wrap it up - that'll make it all better" - -
And that is where the life got sucked right out of - and her - - we were there 5 HOURS. Seriously! Over 2 hours in the waiting room - what if this were a real emergency?!?! She kept busy coloring and playing on my tablet, etc, but after a couple of hours the life was sucked out of her too. Here she is early on in the fun:
So finally we were called back and I thought we'd be moving along and headed home - nope - we were in our little room in the ER for another 2 1/2 hours!! At one point I thought that this must be some crazy sociological experiment, to see how long people would wait in a closed room expecting to see a doctor. This is how they break your spirit, make you conform to ER standards. Killing time, taking pictures of ourselves:
At least in the little room we could stretch out on the "bed" and control our own TV channel - - watching TV, for hours:
More killing time with pictures....
we were there a couple of hours - I guess it could have been worse....
