Throwback Thursday

This was our first ER visit and it was one of the worst visit's we have ever had to this date. My baby girl was sick and she got dehydrated... After a few days and calling the on call dr.'s off and on those 2 days, they recommended I bring her to the ER. I got there at around 7 pm and we didn't end up leaving the hospital until 4 in the morning. At around 9 my best friend Jenn came up to the hospital to meet us with goodies for C and a diet coke for me. We waited for another hour and after hour 3 we were taken back.

The picture above shows C with her IV in and it wrapped up so she didn't pull it out. This was after 4 failed attempts by 3 different people. After poke 4, they could see the frustration in my face and they decided to call the NICU nurse down to help. She came down and was able to get it done with the first poke. She also had to get catheter and this put me over the edge. I was so over this visit by this moment.

We left at 4 and it was the most miserable experience EVER... I will never forget this day and will definitely request a specialist if this ever happens again!


  1. That all sounds like it was as rough on you as well as your child. I hope she is on the mend now.

  2. Oh yes Mrs. Pattie it was as rough on me as it was on her... this was when she was 2 and she is now 7 so she is doing great now. Definitely something I will never forget!

  3. always hardest being mom, and at that moment you feel so helpless because you cannot do anything.. ugh! been in the same boat...
