How We Spent Our Easter

Us and everyone else within a 50 mile radius. Who knew that the emergency room would be a popular place to spend the Easter holiday. It was standing room only at the emergency room today. There was even one family who apparently picked the ER waiting room to have a family reunion.

The trick is that if you go in dripping blood, they will move you to the front of the line. I believe their exact words were "we don't want you to get blood on our new chairs."

Apparently they have their priorities in the ER. . . and new furniture is right at the top.

Oh no! A trip to the ER on any old day is bad but on a holiday - horrible! I hope whoever was hurt was fixed up quickly and as pain free as possible!

Oy! I hear you. We went to ER a few days before Easter and got fast tracked because our 9 year old cut his finger off. We called in ahead of time and it's the fastest we've ever been in. I hope to never do it again!

I hope your sweetie is feeling better?

Thanks Brandy.

I should clear it up since I had a couple of urgent emails and phone calls.

Everything is okay. Vern just had some issues with the nephrostomy tubes that they had placed during surgery last week, so we made a trip to the ER so that they could reconnect them and repack them.

He also got a kick butt shot for pain while we were there!

oooooohhhhh, I think I know which hospital that is! My mom was in ICU there and got her nephrostomy bags put in there as well. I loved her Urologist. Totally awesome.

Love your new soapstone counters too.

Good luck with your DH's health and the remodel that never ends.
