What The Hell Wednesday~Too Many Doctor Visits!

Wednesdays are great for Wordless and Wordful posts, but we decided to go a different route and create our own Wednesday fun. We figured what the hell. That’s how we started What The Hell Wednesday. Who are we kidding? That’s pretty much how we decide on almost everything. If you want to play along, grab our button on the sidebar, link up to us in your post and don’t forget to sign in to McLinky below. Really, what the hell?

**Please Note, Elle’s life has been too hectic today for her to put up her WTH’s, and believe me, she has some!!  She will be back next week…don’t worry!!**  For now, enjoy my What the Hell’s!


Okay, so ALL my What The Hell’swill be about Doctor’s today, sorry, but it’s been quite a long week and it’s only Wednesday!!  Okay, so I know I wrote a few Random Tuesday Thoughts about the ER, but here’s the back story.  I brought Thing 2 to the ER Saturday night because he had gotten hit helmet to helmet in Saturday morning’s game.  He started to feel lethargic and just looked sick.  I brought him to the ER and he had a temperature of 103. something!  What The Hell?  So they do blood work (and totally miss his vein WTH??), an IV, urinalysis, Chest X-ray and a Cat Scan of his head.  All comes back normal other than the blood work that shows he’s fighting off some sort of virus.  So the ER Doctor says to me, “we really need to do a spinal tap to rule out Spinal Meningitis.”  WHAT THE HELL???  I think Thing 2 said WTH too!  He was sitting in the bed shaking his head back and forth as the Doctor described sticking a big ass needle into his little spine.  Yeah, I don’t frickin’ think so!  The Doctor says, “well I can’t rule that out without testing him for that, you know kids die from that.”  Yeah I know, but I REALLY don’t think that my child who is currently playing ISPY with me and laughing because he had a hard time peeing in a cup has Bacterial Meningitis!!  So NO, no spinal tap for him.

We left the hospital Saturday night and they told me to give him Tylenol and Advil for the fever.  He felt fine, and the fever would come and go.  One day he’d have one, the next it would be gone.  So I sent him to school, the kid was off the wall and acted normal.  Sooooo, today his PCP calls me twice.  I call her back and she says, “Oh I just wanted to see what medication he was put on for Pneumonia.”  What The Hell?  Pneumonia??  I was NEVER told he had that!!!  Notice how in the previous sentence I said, “chest x-ray.” Now he’s on antibiotics, and has to stay home from school.  Of course I got the, “You’re a bad Mom for sending him to school with Pneumonia look”.  Hey, I need to go to work, and his fever kept going away!!  Not that I told him not to tell anyone that he had a fever or anything……

On Tuesday I had to go see the Surgeon for my hernia.  First off I get there 20 minutes early like she told me to.  I go to pay my Co-pay and she tells me it’s $40.00 not $15.00!  What the Hell????  Apparently I’ve never gone to a specialist before because I’ve never paid more than $15.00!!  I then proceed to wait, and wait, and wait, and WAAAAAAIIIIIIIITTTTTTT!!!  I’m listening to waiting room classical music and I’m getting more and more mad.  I’m so glad I got here 20 minutes early so that I could listen to this music for almost an hour as opposed to 35 minutes!!  FINALLY I get called into the room and the woman says, “there is a young man shadowing the doctor today, do you mind if he watches?”  What the Hell???  Sure, why the hell not??  Why not bring in a bunch of people to look at my pelvic region, no big deal right????  Of course I frickin’ mind!!!  No, I don’t need some “Young Man” watching!!  I don’t know if he was an intern or just some random young man, but he wasn’t going to come in when I had to pull my pants down…just sayin’

    I hope everything is okay with Elle and with Thing 2. I am the mom who always has to call the school and tell them I have been sending my child to school with strep. I take them to the doctor and the rapid strep test comes back negative. I send them back to school and then 3 days later, get a call from the doctor that they have strep. I have experienced that dirty look more than once.

    Poor thing 2! Hope he gets better. My boys always get sent home because they sooo sick and then spend the afternoon driving me crazy cause they don’t act sick at all at home. SMH.
