Daddy… I broke it.

24 Mar

When we were kids…

We were convinced that if you jumped up and down on your Mom’s bed…

If you jumped up high enough… You could almost touch the sky.

Um….

I’m sad to report that this is NOT true.

All you’ll “touch” is an ambulance and the local Emergency Room.

Please. The sky is way up there for a reason…

It’s to fuel your dreams, not empty your parent’s pockets as they fuel the local medical complex…

As much as he’d like to… my three-year-old son Joshua can’t fly.

And I suspect that Dad cried (watching his son in agony) almost as much as Josh did from his broken foot… from the Exam rooms, to the X-Ray rooms and then to the treatment rooms.

The staff at Biloxi Regional’s Emergency Center (especially  “Dr. George” and “Dr. Judy”… ) treated Josh like a prince, in spite of the fact that he was as mean as a demon, after all the poking and prodding. He was in pain, he was angry and he just wanted his daddy. And, I needed them. They delivered.

I’m grateful to them… Dr. George Loukatos is a ROCK.

“Doc Judy” is one sweetheart of a Triage Doctor. She treated Joshua like he was her own child. I can’t say enough about these two.

And I’m secretly grateful that Joshua  passed out from exhaustion when I finally got him home, much later that very, very  long day…

Now… we’re off to see a Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist to see if Joshua needs surgery…

Let’s be careful out there…

The tears you save may be your own…


Posts will be interrupted for a few days. Josh needs me.

    Oh, poor baby. 😦 I’m so glad they figured out what was wrong and that the doctors treated you so well. That makes all the difference in the world. Hugs to you and little Josh.
