so i decide to play and do some tweaking around the house, an attempt to keep my mind busy, when oldest DD tells me she has adominal pain and its only getting worse. So off to emergency we go, we didnt wait too long in waiting room and a nurse comes out and calls her name, so i stand up with her expecting to go in with her when the nurse said, " oh you can just wait here" WELL sh!t, ...............so im sitting in the waiting room with knots in my stomach and could throw up. This is the first time i have not been with my child when sick or in pain at a hospital. :cry: Almost two hours goes by and a nurse comes to get me, my daughter was devastated as she kept asking these nurses to bring me in, she was scared and in horrible pain, finally one of the nurses listened to her and came and got me. So i asked the NICE nurse why was i made to sit in the waiting room, ecspecially when dd wanted me in there with her, well, its because she just turned 18 in January, she is now considered an adult, but she said in so many words, that it can completely depend on the nurse and her mood at the time. WHAT AND THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT:mad:.......Yes, if my dd requested not to have me in there, that is her right but she made it clear to them she wanted me with her., yes i know she isnt a baby anymore but regardless of what they think or what anyone thinks she is still my baby and when she is ill and in pain i feel i have every freaking right to be there to comfort her. further more they are just barely adults, still so much to learn, she still lives at home with me, she is still under my care.....hell she isnt even done highshcool until june.............i bet if this was that nurses child, she would have her ass in there with her child and rightly so. Eight hours later and we are home, they are puzzled but are treating her for UT infection.
RANT OVER....sorry i really needed to vent this, it still burns me
