So on Friday, we went to the park as a family because the Hubby was off of work. Peanut fell and when I picked him up, blood was pouring out of his mouth. When he finally let us have a peak, it looked like a chunk of his tongue was missing. Both Hubby and I agreed, we needed to go to the ER.
Called ahead and they were rude on the phone. That should have been my first clue. Peanut was crying, blood kept pouring out the whole way there.
We get to the ER and they look at us like we were stupid. We were admitted, waited what seemed like forever for the doctor, by then the bleeding had subsided. Turns out mouth injuries bleed more and the doc looked at us like we were stupid too.
$200 co-pay later, we felt so dumb and like we freaked out over nothing. We aren't those parents that rush our kids to the doctor over every little thing. I'm a Googler usually, but I couldn't think of what to do. Seeing all that blood.
Peanut is fine and that's what matters. This is why we have a Health Savings Account. Live and Learn. Everyone we have talked to said they would have taken him too which makes us feel better about the whole thing. What would you have done?
