Just a few more thoughts and reflections about Noah's ER trip

Needless to say, it was quite an adventure that we've had in the last day or so with Noah's ER trip! I am very thankful that the ER staff took care of Noah in a prompt and somewhat organized manner! I am also very glad that Noah is doing a lot better!

However, it was quite a scare for all of us, this marks the third trip to the ER in less than 2 years. It started with my broken ankle (see entry from Sept.-Oct. of 2010), Beth had an GI issue, and now Noah's peanut allergy. Not counting the trips with the pets to the pet clinic, I really hope that we will not have to be at the ER for a long time!

Some observations:

1. With Noah's peanut allergy, that rules out us dining at the "Five Guys" fine dining establishment. I mean, not only are all of their products cooked in peanut oil, but just look at the buckets upon buckets of peanuts at the joint, it's a death trap!

2. Mr. Peanut, instead of being some kind of a friendly, food product related mascot, will instead be the image of the angel of death to Noah, maybe one day Noah will use a cutout of him as a target for target shooting practice.

3. The ER staff at our local hospital were really professional and nice, even though none of then looked like Dr. Cater or Nurse Hathaway....I guess that's ok.

That is all for now.
