Just got home from the emergency room AGAIN

Just got home from taking Steven to the emergency room - Steven is not my child but one of the many that call me "mom" -

He moved out at the beginning at the year...and it is his senior year....

He called tonight and had 103 fever - chills and body aches and pain -

Here we go again.....

I called his dad because he is still on his insurance and Steven is only 17 (not the only reason - I would have calledd him anyway when they took him back but they said they could not treat him till his parent was there...) - his dad came - showed lots and lots of concern - was very worried and stomped his feet till someone came to see his only son and get him taken care of - and he is a big man and stomping his feet makes lots of noise.... Git R Done -

I left about 20 minutes after he got there - after I made sure he was going to stay and take care of him - i didnt truly question that he would - but after the typical 16 and 17 year old "stories" - you just gotta check your facts...and be sure ....

They just texted and said he was on his way home with tamiflu - and no work or school for 3 days....

Sigh.....I am done - this flu is kicking my butt and I dont even have it and have managed to stay away from it so far...

GermX people - Lysol - bleach - Lots of it! by it in bulk...you do NOT want this CRAP....I need a drink dammit.....
