Family Night in Immediate Care
Normally I prefer to have family night over pizza and garlic bread, or a good movie and popcorn snuggled up in the family room. A trip to the museum, games around the table, a bike ride or long walk!
Tonight we decided Immediate Care would make a great place. There's something about our family we can be at home anywhere. If we are together- there's fun to be had and family night can be anywhere - tonight proved it.
My Darling Son might have brought his Highschool Basketball Career to a premature end tonight. He's been playing on borrowed knees for quite some time - putting off the inevitable MRI and tonight landed wrong - ending up down for the count! I could bore you with the play by play details and how he promised me he wouldn't play in the next tournament game - he'd sit the bench and HE DIDN'T - because his team was loosing big and he's the Team Captain and he had to at least try. I could tell you the story of him being carried off the floor by his team members and laying on the floor telling his coach "My Mom's gonna kill me" - but would that be as interesting as all 4 of us going to Immediate Care together...
NOPE There we are not just sitting in Immediate Care we are making conversation, and THEN someone we knew came out with a contagious something or other and SHOOK ALL OF OUR HANDS-------thanks to my SIS I was completely prepared- after the contaminated someone left---I pulled out the antibacteria wash I now keep in my VERA BRADLEY purse and knocked that contamination right off our hands!! It was nice to see the contaminator and I hope the meds work fast.
From there it's onto the room - there was NOT ENOUGH room for all 4 of us in there -- BUMMER, so I sat with Darling Son and the fun continued all the way to the x-ray department. We had an interesting conversation about cell phone use in the x-ray department and how there's no cell signal in the rooms surrounded with lead walls.
Here's the verdict
NO SPORTS - I bet anyone of us could have figured that out!
Alieve- Not exactly rocket science here
Follow up with the Orthopedic next week- Yep, that's obvious
I added no driving - it's his right knee
I nearly forgot - THE MIGHTY SCHOOL EXCUSE FORM - do you think his teacher will accept it?
Medicine is so PREDICATBLE, but you have to play the game - and start on square one - the x-ray!
So until next week, we wait - Basketball Season ends the end of February.
Oh, before I forget - The Tacos' - we picked those up on the way home for dinner about 4 hours after the normal dinner hour. And ate them during a family movie - ah, finally Family Night!
