Nursing an illness

November 4, 2015 - 2:49pm
"It's me. I'm in the worst pain I've ever felt and am walking by myself to the ER." Yeah, that is not what any parent wants to hear at 1 a.m. from their kid who is 700 miles away. Yet, that's exactly the call I got a couple of weeks ago. I felt completely helpless. My child was far away, alone, scared and in pain. During the next few hours, we were on the phone with her on and off while she was examined and waited for a diagnosis. Once they admitted her, it was an easy decision to hop on a plane. The only thing keeping me from completely breaking down was the fact that she was in a hospital under the watchful care of medical professionals. It turns out she recovered quickly and was fine. No surgery needed and no major illness. But she still spent two days in the hospital, which is never fun. Hospitals are hectic, noisy, busy places. It was the first time my daughter had ever spent the night in one. The following morning she said to me, "Everyone has been incredibly nice and caring, but they are constantly busy. I could never be a nurse - I don't know how they manage to take care of so many people at once. They deserve a special place in heaven."
