Boring Stuff/The Health System Sucks

Had to deal with a medical emergency today.

The health system sucks. No compassion, appalling treatment and absolutely disgusting lack of care.

Back to my usual writing schedule tomorrow.

      No, they made him wash his own wound with soap and water, dry it on a rough towel, and then refused to dress it appropriately when they realized we couldn’t pay. They showed my son NO compassion at all. He is still a kid. I had to dress it myself. We did see a doctor. No lasting damage, but a very nasty cut. I can’t help but think if my son was whiter they would have been kinder. Bastards.

    I hate that people feel that their economical status makes them somewhat better than everyone else. I remember when I was so low on the ladder of success that I couldn’t see the bottom rung, I hope our boy, Chris, is doing well now. Washing with soap and water was good advice, but shit, they could have got their hands wet. He is lucky to have a loving Mom like you. Hugs to both of you.

    Being young is on his side. If he is reasonable healthy, he can ward off many things that you and I would be hit harder by. Try to keep him down and make sure he eats. Sleep is good for him. Hugs! You are a great Mom.
