4 Bumps

Yet another ER trip

I swear we should just have a room there. DS was jumping on the trampoline today and landed on his face and broke his nose. 4th ER trip in a month. 2nd broken bone this year. The kid is a walking accident. LOL. Going to the specialist on monday to have it re-set. Yay fun. Between the ER and all the specialists we have seen this year not to mention his primary care doctor, we have spent more time around doctors than just about anywhere else.

So to make this a question, anyone else spending to much time around doctors for one reason or another?

  • Yup. One kid sprained her ankle on a trampoline, the other was sick, and before that it was a bladder infection because she was too busy playing game to take the time to go use the restroom. Kids are FUN.

  • Poor guy! I hope he feels better soon. Sometimes it's just one thing after another & then nothing for ages.

  • Oh, that poor kid!

    Thankfully no. I've only done 1 urgent care & 1 primary Dr. visit this year.

  • Well, aside from the fact that I work at the pediatricians office. DS has been a regular at ENT this year. Ear tubes in Jan, 5 ear infections after that, new ear tubes and adenoids out last month, then sinus infection 3 days later. Seems we are going to be regulars for a while.

  • Aww :( poor kid. Dd's only 4 so we haven't gotten into that hard play stage yet lol, but so far the only times I've had to take her to the doctor were for her check ups.

  • We had so many bumps scrapes and febrile seizures for awhile ER staff knew us on a first name basis
    So when one jackass attempted to accuse me of abuse ( the kid had stepped pn a hoe cutting the skin between two toes, the ass said i had pulled his tors apart * insert crazy eyes)
    Nurses jumped his shit, lol

  • Ouch!! I bet that hurts!!

    We have not been to the ER in a good long while. NO really injuries to speak of but we can't seem to stay well! Someone is sick every other week with something this year. It is starting to get on my nerves for real! I wish I was exaggerating!!
