Another Day, Another ER 

I spent five hours in the ER today and was discharged without a diagnosis. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say I’m in a lot of pain and after all the tests show nothing wrong me, I’ve begun to feel like I’m making it all up. Except I’m not. I was crying so hard this morning I made the baby cry. 

This is not our first pre-Thanksgiving visit to an ER. When we lived in DC, we ate Taco Bell about a week before we planned to drive to New York to spend the holiday with friends. Both of us got food poisoning but G’s was worse and we spent a night in the ER where they pumped him with IV fluids. He barely had an appetite for the delicious Thanksgiving meal H made us a week later on Staten Island. 

And let’s not forget the weekend before Thanksgiving in college when I was in a huge car wreck, but thankfully none of us were hospitalized overnight. 

And G just reminded me that right before Future President’s first Thanksgiving, he fell off the changing table and we had to monitor him for a concussion. 

So we don’t have the best track record of being healthy for Thanksgiving. Here’s hoping whatever is wrong with me has a diagnosis by Thanksgiving or I’m going to end up spending the whole day in bed. 

And on that happy note, my bed is calling. Goodnight.

  1. Oh no! I’m sorry you’re not well. Your Thanksgiving plans this year sounded so good, I hope you’re feeling up to them. If I lived closer I’d come over and help you prep. Love you!

  2. Well, that does not sound like a good Thanksgiving pattern. I hope you find out what’s going on, heal quickly, and that Thanksgiving is as happy as possible!
