A Heart Stopping Call

Posted Jan 27 2009 6:29pm

"Stephanie, we need you to bring Aiden to the hospital" there was a long pause, "Monday morning. Take him there first. So that way you don't have to wait for 4 hours."

This was the call I got an hour ago. When that first part was said, I wanted to drop dead. I'm not ready for Aiden to go to the hospital. I haven't came to terms with the fact that he has to go to the hospital yet.

Once I realized what Christy was saying, my heart started beating again. I still have to cancel appointments for that day.

And Christy is going to try to get Aiden in as early as possible Tuesday morning. The last cath lab was two hours late. Aiden had not eaten anything in almost 8 hours. And he was not happy about it. He told everyone!! The nurses in the OR waiting room were not happy about this screaming child. One kept coming in every 15 minutes telling us to keep him quiet. Finally, I told one of them to get him a bottle instead of a pacifier and he would stop screaming. The nurses stopped coming in then.

So, we play the waiting game and try to enjoy the Holiday weekend.
