Well, yesterday he woke up looking kinda weird. He had a crazy rash all over his body, not itchy, not raised; he wouldn't have even known if I didn't make him shower right when I saw it. So by last night after he had gone to sleep, he woke up at about midnight and looked like death warmed over.
That was it, got dressed, contacts in, shoes on. Got him bundled up and took him to the ER. Here is where it got interesting for me.
I hear all the time how our "free" universal medical system makes for insane wait times and all around bad service.
After all the problems that we have been dealing with… my grandma being in the hospital for 2 weeks (with amazing care), being at home, rushed through specialists, blood work, doctors appointments, scans, back in and out of the hospital and now this experience with my son, I have actually gotten more appreciation for our Health Care system.
