Mum in hospital, boyfriend to A and E

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Well, I have had a busy day.

I got a text around 10.30 from my mum saying that she was in hospital. Her cold wasn't getting better so she went back to the doctor who sent her straight to the hospital to rule out pneumonia. Luckily work was really understanding and sent me to be with her. All the tests have come back negative, so she is just in being observed and she can come home tomorrow.

While I was at the hospital my boyfriend called me and said that I shouldn't panic but he cut his finger making dinner (to put in the crockpot) and it wouldn't stop bleeding. Left mum in the hospital, went to get the boyfriend and took him to the accident and emergency centre. Only a minor injury, but he needed a tetanus injection and a dressing.

Whew. Luckily everyone is safe and sound tonight. Very lucky to live in a country with such awesome (free!) medical care!

It goes without saying that my eating wasn't awesome today. I took my morning tea to the hospital, so I had a banana there. Picked up sushi for lunch. Dinner was in the crockpot, so no major there. I tried millet for the first time, which is minor compared to the rest of the day, but it was yummy. Managed to get to the gym for a quick weights session. I am sore from kickboxing, mainly in my back.

Now I have to organise a little bit for tomorrow, and then I can relax!

    So glad your loved ones are all okay! I love kickboxing too, but my sore back is from tossing and turning and never being able to sleep :P.
    I hope you have a much more enjoyable Tuesday!

    Chaley - Just not as awesome as usual! My 2 oranges, yogurt, and sandwich are still sitting in the fridge at work. I made good choices with what I had, but more fruit and veggie servings would have been nice!

    Glad everyone's okay. And you did well with your program. Good for you!

    You're lucky to have free health care. Here in the US I spend $6,500 per year for my family plus another $1,000 in deductibles and copays. My employer kicks in $6,500. Yikes! Are things out of control here, or what?

    Anyway--hope your day is event free and smooth sailing! emoticon

    What do you mean that "it goes without saying that your eating wasn't awesome"? It sounds like you still managed to eat well, and get in a workout! Great job!!

    It sounds like MISS BUBBLE is taking after her Aunty Kriss - LOL! THAT is the sort of thing that happens to us. About a year ago I had hubby go off to hospital in the wee hours of the a.m. I was supposed to take my Stepfather to an Outpatient Appointment that day, so waited until a civil hour and phoned to let them know there was a slight change of plans and that I would take our lunch with us. My sister answered the phone. As soon as I mentioned a slight change of plans she interrupted and said "Tell me about it - the Dr has just rocked on in closely followed by the ambulance." HE was sent to hospital so I had BOTH in North Shore Emergency Dept. one on one side of it and the other on the other side. I was racing back and forth between them. It turned out they both had the same Specialist coming back and forth too. A wee bit before that, it was my mother and sister together. Mum was going down in the ambulance as support for my sister who had just had a stroke. Mum ended up collapsing too so the Ambo had to get assistance to get them both out the ambulance and into the ER. At least the staff put them into 2 cubicles next to each other, and that could easily have the partition opened so they could talk with each other - LOL!

    Anyway sending good vibes to your Mum and as for your BF - I reckon he was jealous and wanted you with him :-) Hope they are good as gold in no time at all!
