Ambulance rides from a 3yr olds perspective

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

"The siren went woooooo woooo woooo and I got to sit in a seat with buckles and I didn't have to sit in a booster seat and when we turned the ambulance went whoa this way and what's that and why are you here and what's that?"
According to my pal, Lucas:
"Mommy got stunk by a 3ft yellow jack and somebody's grandfather called 911. I didn't get to eat my bagel. Can I have my cholat milk why are you here? Where's Daddy? Mommy does it hurt? What's that beeping noise what happens if I push this why is this green what are these yellow and blue things. Mommy why do you have wires can we go now? I hafta go to the bathroom can I go in an elevator?"

We thought my DD was allergic to wasp stings and sure enough she proved it yesterday. They were on a playground (wood chip base) and out of nowhere a yellow jacket decided her wrist deserved a hit. She asked gentleman to call 911 as she knew something wasn't right. By the time they were in the ride to the hospital, she got a well deserved shot from an epi-pen, then upon arrival also IV Benadryl, steroids, a prescription for an epi-pen and two more medication to take today.

A close call we filled with large doses of humor. A friend of a friend died two days ago along with her unborn child, due to an allergic reaction to wasps. We know this is nasty territory and are grateful for the fast work by the medics etc.

Back to the humor.

We took rides in every elevator I could find. I introduced him to my coworkers. He got candy and stickers. Played with toys. Had one well deserved time-out. Visited several bathrooms he swore he didn't need but utilized. Jumped on mommy's bed. Mommy didn't care because the Benadryl knocked her out. Then SIL arrived with Ben in tow; both Mommy and Ben needed nursing time. Mommy barley stayed awake. We found Ben was thrilled over all the monitors and beeps too as he decided to shriek and giggle when bells went off!

Everyone was back home, two kids sound asleep by 9, DD fed, calm and ready for bed herself.

Did I say I needed a drink?

    My first hubby was allergic to wasps and my husband now seems to be really reactive to them. Yellow jackets are mean and will sting you for no reason at all. I hate them and we make sure that any nests in our yard are gotten rid of. In the evening it's easy to see them flying back and forth to their underground nests but one has to wait until dark to get rid of them.

    Sounds like a wild day for Lucas and everyone. I think your daughter needs to always have epipen with her now.

    Love how kids see the world! In their innocence, they have a sense that their loved one is being well cared for, and wonder what all the neato stuff does.

    You just trumped my hospitalizing for my sister last week in spades with one single story! As usual, written with your humor intact... glad things worked out and the response was quick and effective. Bet you need a nap! emoticon
