At 3:30 AM Nick had a fever of 103.7. By 4:00 AM we were in the car heading toward the ER at county hospital.
Totally awesome adventure 2012.
Nicks spleen was removed the night of his accident to save his life. People without spleens are at a greater risk of sepsis when their immune system is compromised.
With a sudden onset of fever, intense headache, and out of control heart rate, with no other flu-like symptoms, we couldn’t risk waiting until morning.
You’d think the ER would be a ghost town on a random Tuesday at 4AM. Nope. Wrong. We’ve been here two hours, there are nine people ahead of us and they’ve only called back one person so far.
Nick was getting so dizzy he thought he was going to fall out of his wheelchair, so he’s now laying in the back seat of the car waiting. I get to hang with all the coughing, sneezing, crying, puking Sickies to be sure we don’t miss his name being called.
Life is so weird.
