Most people consider the number 13 to be unlucky. And after you read this blog you may say this proves it, but I see something else.
We were celebrating anniversary #13 while at the beach with family and friends. As soon as we get there my child is grouchy and mean to the other children and adults.
2:30am - My son has fever of102.6 and vomits all over me 3 times.
9:30am - we take him to after hours clinic. He has an ear infection.
2:30am - He's having trouble breathing. Sounds like he's wheezing. We take him to the er. He has croup.
We leave the beach and head to my husband's parents home.
2:30am - He's gasping for air. Wheezing so bad I think he's going to stop breathing or pass out. We go back to er.
Current Price tag just for copays and prescriptions: $600.00
He's doing much better now. We are all exhausted including my inlaws, since they were up with us.
Unlucky 13, I think not. I say we are very fortunate for the following reasons:
My son was able to get medical care in 3 different locations. I know there are many children around the world who don't have the same luxury.
My husband and I were there together. I know many parents who do it alone.
My husband is employed and sooner or later the bills will be paid. I know there are many people without jobs and insurance.
So I say lucky #13!!
