2 1/2 hours is a LONG time ...

So, yesterday morning we wake up to two sick girls.

Well, one sick girl and one tired,cranky girl.

I decide to take Sophie (the sick one) to urgent care. The cranky one starts coming down with all kinds of symptoms, so I agree to take her, too. She had been coughing the last two nights (see:tired,cranky).

It is literally standing room only at the Urgent Care.

Two and a half hours later ... we are finally called back.

Scenes from a waiting room...
  • Maddie is coloring. She asks me, "what does this crayon say?" "Fuschia", I say. "POO-SHA? I'm coloring POO-SHA?!?!?!?!"
  • Maddie, to the elderly lady sitting next to us, "Why are you sticking your tongue out at me? I'm Maddie Claire."
  • After about an hour and a half plus two potty breaks, Maddie announces, "Mommy! I just pee-peed on my leg!" Mommy is horrified. Then she says, "Just kidding." Now, Mommy is even more horrified - she realizes Maddie has inherited her daddy's sense of humor.

All of this with a shaking, whimpering, feverish 4 year old in my lap.

Long day.

Funny, but pee pee running down a leg is NEVER funny. When I had the shingles we were in the waiting room for 3 hours and I thought I was going to lose it. Why can't dr. offices understand and just put us in a quiet room alone to let us wait?

We were at Urgent Care on Hilltop Sunday with Berkley. Girl I was thinking we would be there all day, but we were only there 20 minutes. I was so relieved. Hope your girls feel better soon!! This time of year is the pits!

I think Maddie IS funny, but I'm still sorry you had to wait so long. That is a really long time!

Oh Danna, I am so sorry! I hope Sophie is feeling better by now. At least you didn't have Eliza with you! You're right---what a long 2 1/2 hrs.!

I'm not gonna lie...I would have been in a terrible mood after that!! I feel your pain...I hate those situations!! My boys can be super wild in those relentless situations! The only thing is sometimes one of them is lathargic because they are so sick.:):) Bless your little Sophie's heart! Hope she is feeling a little better!
