I am such a bad mum. We have spent most of the day in A&E today. As a lot of you probably know Meg dosent see to well and we have had a previous 6 hour trip to A&E folowed by a 2hr trip as we tryed to train yet another new set of Dr's. Meg's condition is very rare and most Dr's havent even read about it let alone seen it.. And as you will know they don't particulaly like being educated by a stay at home mum.
However that is no different to the UK. So when Meg got another abrasion this am I just thought que cera hear we go again. However we were in and out in 2 hours. The only issue we had was that we were give cloramphenical ointment, that we usualy have, and the Dr insisted we had to patch with it. We dont usually bother but his explanation made sense so despite Megs protestes she went to school with an eye patch. It was really wierd as it is 12m since we seen her in an eye patch:jimlad:.
And now comes why I'm such a bad bad mum. Morgan picked the kids up from school and when they got home Meg looked pathetic and said she had fallen of the Monkey bars. To be honest I wasnt that intrested!!!!! She falls of the monkey bars almost every day. Now Meg has a very high pain threshold as she is used to a lot of pain from her eye. However she was complaining a little but didn't look in a lot of pain but she kept saying and saying so against my better judgement and coupled with Morgans nagging I took her back to A&E. We saw the triage nurse and he waggled her arm up down left and right and she didn't bat an eyelid. Oh I could have found a hole. The nurse who I have to say was very nice ( for anyone of a female persuasion read male and VERY NICE!!!!) baiscly laughed at my embarisment and said he thought it was just a soft tissue injuriey. We then went to reception and the lass said wern't you here yesterday? oh no this morning!!!!!by this time I had told Megan I thought she was putting it on and being a drama queen. Anyway we left 2 1/2 hours lator with Meg in a plaster She only has a small fracture and due to the swellin a back slab. but I have had to eat hummble pie and at 22.00 hrs she is still smug. Even in her sleep!!!!!!!!!Oh I am a bad Mum
