Say what?

I’m going crazy.

Really.

We have been in the hospital close to a month (don’t forget – this is our 2nd hospital stay since Evan was born) and I have mini-breakdowns throughout the day.

I also have moments where I laugh like the Joker or Rick Carlisle (only Ticket P-1s will understand that) for no reason at all.

I’m exhausted – emotionally, physically, and mentally.

There are days where I don’t leave Evan’s room and all day I’m surrounded by the beep beep of the machines and people in white coats.

When I’m this tired, I tend to just say things and fail to put my filter up to sort out the stupid that sometimes cascades out of my mouth – you know – verbal diarrhea.

What’s best is the reaction I get from whomever I am speaking to….

 

Doctor:  I’m sorry the residents came into your room last night again without really having to.  I know it was late.

Me:  It’s ok. I asked them why they had to come in.

Doctor:  Well – you have to let them in – just to check on him.

Me:  I actually said it in my head – just another voice in there that I hear.

Doctor:  *Silence*

 

*While trying to collect urine in a specimen bag*

Nurse:  Oh he’s fussy today.

Me:  Well – you’d be fussy too if you had a plastic bag around your genitals.

Nurse:  Ummm….you’re right?

 

Resident:  He’s playful today.  See how his arms are moving around!

Me:  No – he’s just throwing gang signs.  He’s thug like that.

Resident:  Oh – ok.

 

Doctor:  He’s having really bad reflux. 

Me:  I know – he may get it from my side of the family.  My daughter had it.

Doctor:  He’s also pretty gassy.

Me:  Yeah – he gets that from me.

Doctor:  *Silence*

 

Ya’ll – let’s pray Evan is able to hold is feeds down.  That’s the only thing keeping us from coming home.  Because the longer I stay in this place….the crazier I become.

  2. that’s terrible that you’re so tired, but VERY funny to imagine their faces! And seriously, sometimes they say the dumbest things! 🙂 i’ll pray for his little stomach to keep it all in! 🙂
