OOP’s They Did it Again When Dr's Screw Up

OOP’s They Did it Again

My first job in life is as a parent to my children. They are what matters and as an adult I need to be their biggest advocate when they need me. A week ago I took my ten-year-old son to the ER, when he turned his ankle playing. No mind you I’m not that parent who thinks everything is someone else’s fault and an excuse to sue someone. Pooh happens when you have kids. The get into trouble at time's accidents and as a parent we do what were supposed to by taking them to the Dr.

All of that is fine and good, but I cannot help but get extremely frustrated when a Dr. dismisses a child’s injury because they aren’t acting like a drama queen screaming, crying and carrying on. My son is tough, especially when he is in front of his friends or strangers. That doesn’t mean he won’t scream like a girl if he cuts himself at home. However as a child he looks up to his dad who is tough, when it comes to injuries. If this was a one shot incident, I don’t believe I would be so upset but the fact that the Dr., who treated him, dismissed his injury as a sprain and entirely missed that his ankle was actually broken. My son will be in a cast for the next six weeks, with strict instructions not to walk on his cast at all.

As a parent, I find this horrifying that a professional would miss a break in a kids' leg. Or not look more closely because he walked in on his own steam at his own insistence. If this had been the only child, I have had this happen with I could possibly understand it, but it isn’t. Almost 15 years ago I went through the exact same thing when my daughter broke both bones in her arm. At the time, the Dr. insisted it was only a bruise and never requested an ex-ray.

My husband and I both questioned it when we saw she was favoring her arm holding it in close to her body. I took her to the ER and insisted on an ex-ray and thankfully the break to both bones were clearly visible. She was casted and eventually healed from the injury. We didn’t sue anyone or even blame anyone for it because bottom line she was alright. My son will be alright as well in time, what upsets me though is that as a soccer player, his season is about to start, and he would have very possibly injured his ankle more severely at the break not been caught.

Having worked in the medical field for almost fifteen years, I do have a tremendous amount of respect for nurses and doctors in the medical field. Their job is not an easy one, nor a responsibility I would want. I know that perhaps this is mostly venting but take this as cautionary. If you have a child or a loved one who doesn’t carry on when they get hurt, don’t allow the medical profession to dismiss them for it. Step up to the plate at tell them, “Hey my son or daughter is a tough cookie, they don’t act like a drama queen when they get hurt. They act like a stoic adult so figure it out and get it right.”

I’ve never been afraid of confronting a professional if I know they are blowing smoke up my behind. Especially if I know they are dead wrong. Instead of suing everyone, maybe we should instead hold them accountable for their mistakes. Call them on it and make them aware they are wrong. Dr.’s can be arrogant and demanding but sometimes they can also be wrong.

Racheal Awakened Preview

Racheal Awakened 
Daughters of Lilith 
Series Book 1
What if the stories of Lilith are wrong? What if she wasn’t the demon legend portrays, but instead, she and her daughters were here to suppress evil. Perhaps she walked away, instead making a bargain to free herself from a life she didn't want. To fight for mankind. 
Racheal is neither human nor demon, a child who must come to terms with who and what she is before she reaches adulthood. Taken prisoner and tortured by those she must fight, she is left broken, a shell of herself, at a time when the Templars and Church battle for power. Along with her family, she is here to purge the Fallen, those who want to put an end to humankind. Trapped by a choice she didn’t make, Racheal must find her way through the centuries, struggling to find peace.
Rafael, a dark-haired, golden-eyed Lycan, is ensnared by Racheal’s spell from the moment they meet. He tumbles into her world and finds his mate, only to have her reject him over and over. Sometimes patience can be a real pain in the behind, but despite it all, he can’t walk away from the red-haired beauty who holds his heart. 
Sometimes a bargain can be a double-edged sword and the price of freedom steep, yet this dark beauty is the key to it all. From her first steps outside of Eden, she knows this life is going to be a bitch. Undaunted, she is confident her Creator has her back… right? 
Kamuel is an angel sent to keep Lilith in line—teach her, train her, show her how to fight—but if she crosses the line, he must not hesitate to kill her. But it’s hard not to fall for the first woman.

Remember our Vets This Fourth of July

      Tomorrow is the Anniversary of our nation’s independence, for many that means hanging out with friends and family. Going to the beach, boardwalk, or watching the many firework celebrations that take place on this special day. With our economy still not working well, it isn’t hard to think about the fight for freedom that our forefathers fought on our behalf. Nor is it hard to remember our soldiers who are still out there protecting us. Especially those infantry soldiers who face the beast of tyranny head on. There emotional and physical sacrifices keep us safe. So despite the fact that we have our freedoms still and are able to enjoy them, remember our vets, our soldiers, those who still are serving our country in our military. Their job is thankless, and one many of us could never do.

So take this message from a vet who has served.

     Next week, we'll mark the 238th year of our Nation's independence.  As you hang bunting and flags, fire up the grill, and enjoy the time off, I ask that you remember that our independence and the freedoms we enjoy today came at a price of blood and treasure.  There are many -- military and civilian -- who came before us to fight for our independence and defend it during the past two centuries.  So, on this Independence Day, I'd ask that you remember those who have gone before, but I'd also ask you to reflect on our freedoms that our country has earned and maintain them.  As recent world events show us, freedoms like ours are neither permanent nor guaranteed but they are always precious.
     Also, I'd ask you to remember that this holiday weekend there will be dedicated service members and civilians working hard and standing watch in defense of our country and all it stands for.  Keep them in your thoughts and prayers and, if you have the opportunity, thank them.  Pass this along.


For this 4th of July have a happy and safe holiday. 

Be sure to thank those who serve and protect our freedoms.

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
