Yesterday was a frightening nightmare. My hubby walked through the door about 12:30pm and asked, “Hey everyone, do you want to go fishing?” Of course the kids were totally into it so okay not a problem, lets go fishing. We get to the spot, my husband is setting all our rods up, my daughter walks around the car up to me and says, “I don’t feel well,” then proceeds to faint. I catch her, and start to yell her name and she snaps out of it. She was only out for about 10 seconds but that was the longest 10 seconds of my life. I call her doctor, my hubby loads everything up in the car and we cruise to the ER. Half way there she starts to look better, starts to get color in her face and her lips are no longer ghostly white, she’s exhausted as hell though. We wait in the ER for about 6 hours, then a nurse comes in to see what has occured and to explain to us that everything is going to be fine and they are just waiting on the doctor. We get to see a wonderful nurse practioner, who exams my daughter and explains that while fainting is a terrifying experience, it’s quite common. They test her pee for urinary infections, bet that was the most expensive pee my daughter will ever take, and then my hubby and I want an EKG done on her, I’m worried at this point about her heart. It came out normal. We left with instructions to see her regular doctor today, asap. Well the asap isn’t happening until Friday morning, you can imagine the talking to that receptionist got from this terrified mother! So Friday morning it is. I called my husbands Mom, because I need to get some of this out, I need to not feel so scared and well that wasn’t the smartest thing I could have done because she proceeds to tell me that while the had her, she had felt a lump in her neck but forgot to mention it to me! WTF! SO it’s still friday morning for the doctors visit. Unfuckingbelieveable.
My hands are shaking, my heart is working overtime, my brain is boggled, and I just am terrified. My daughter is a happy, healthy 8 year old. Or is she?
