at the hospital.
overall I know the nurses are here to help and care for Clark but can I vent for a minute?
Do they REALLY think  I am such an un=educated person that I don't know what is going on?  Do they have ANY idea how much time I have spent in the hospital with this kid?  I don't need a five minute explanation on what an ng feeding tube is, thanks.  I PUT ONE in his nose for 5 months myself.   Is it entirely necessary to come listen to him RIGHT NOW, because you want to RIGHT NOW, even though I finally just got him comfortable enough to sleep for the first time in 6 hours?  sheesh.  And if I ask for a band aid do you really have to know exactly what I am going to do with it, I mean, is that the latest weapon used on an aircraft and I just missed that? 
I realize i am sleep deprived and stressed.  And I am thankful for those who nurture and serve.  Yet I consistently find myself disappointed in the lack of professionalism everywhere I go.  And then I find I do it myself.  Is that the world we live in?  Are we just in a downward spiral?
Well if I mention that "health care reform" bill being crammed through the senate I think I just answered my own question. I digress.
Fever.  again.  Come on Clark!  Lets do some drinking!  Water is good, milk is good, juice is good, chocolate milk is good, lets all have some!  !!!


  1. I'm so sorry. Hopefully not too much longer...

  2. Those long days and nights in the hospital really take a toll, don't they.
    And what about the 3 am check? Please, let my baby just sleep. I'll let you know if anything changes, I PROMISE!!!

    Thinking of you.....

  3. Hang in there Em! We are praying for you guys constantly. I completely understand your frustrations. We love you.

  4. Even sleep deprived you write beautifully!! You, Kurt, and Clark are in our thoughts and prayers.
