Today is a New Day.

So thanks for letting me rant and rave and wave my arms around in the air last night. I was hurting, and I was angry. I thought about deleting my post afterward, but decided against it because it's true. It's how I feel, and I don't want to sanitize my words, even if it might make other people more comfortable. I'm always reading about some gallant woman without legs, or some terminally ill child, and everybody is full of smiles all of the time. You know that isn't the case. You know there are nights where Mom's head is buried in her hands and she's just sobbing her heart out. I think we need to hear about that, too, because it's important. It's life.

Anyway, today I'm a little more clear headed, and not as overwhelmed by emotion. I no longer think that monsters are attracted to hospital so that they can prey on innocent, ill children. But I do think that I need to file a report about the IV needle nurse.

In other news, today I have not one, not two, but seven different people stopping by at interspersed times. I need to pull myself together for it. And pick up Niko's washer and dryer ads off of the floor. One day when we're fabulously wealthy, we'll buy that boy a front loader, thereby making all of his dreams come true.

I am glad you had the courage to share your feelings last night. I read them and made David read them. I can't tell you with words the way we felt. I love you and I love Niko, the little boy that went from laying around to walking and liking me a little more because I gave him an Elmo toy!
We'll pray for you and I am glad you are going to file a report, they need to know of such behavior.
Niko and I share dreams!! I also want a front loader :-)
sending hugs and love.

I'm glad you didn't delete it. Glad you're feeling better. Glad you're going to file the report.

Here's to a new day!

I am a day late but so flippin angry I could spit!! You HAVE TO notify everyone you can of the treatment or LACK of treament your son received. Let me tell you I work at a hospital and if a complaint like this came in that director would be on fire and physician's can feel the heat too when these types of complaints are pushed to the Medical Staffing meetings. I deal with doctors and many feel they are a gift from above and have NO tact. they know I have my own saying here, "it says M.D. not G O D!
I think i need a drink now.

Nobody sane is full of smiles all the time.

You feel what you feel when you feel it, and you deal as best you can. Letting it out can ease the pressure. (That's why I haven't exploded from all the feeling stuff inside, I blog. It's why I started, because I couldn't keep it all in and live.)

This is your blog; rant and rave all you like. But DO report the IV needle nurse.

I've been following blog links, and got here the long way round from Julie's blog.

By the way, Mercedes, I'd like to invite you to comment on my meme post:
