Disturbed in Spirit

Posted by Dirck on 23 August, 2012

Let me preface: all is well now.

Last night, my son came into the living room shortly after dinner.  He was coughing, wheezing and scratching at his neck, and looking rather unhappy.  Heigh-ho for the emergency room!  It appears that he’s become allergic to either peanuts or prosciutto.

Apart from the observation that an emergency room will always include a belligerent drunk who can’t possibly follow through on his threats of violence, I don’t have much to offer today; spirits slightly a-flutter, and not so much sleep as I’d have liked, so I’m bowing out for today.  I will, though, point out for the use of American visitors who may be of mixed opinion on socialized health-care; three hours in the ER, electrocardiograph and pulse-ox monitoring throughout, two doctors, three different medications, for a total cost of… I pay a little more sales tax than you do, and that includes the parking.  Give it a think, folks.

Today’s ink: Noodler’s Walnut

  1. Glad to hear your son is ok, have you been able to identify the trigger? Poor kid, allergies suck.

    • There’s an appointment with a paediatrician for testing. I mention peanuts as he had a couple of mouthfuls of an ice cream confection involving lumps of Cripsy Crunch, but he’s eaten from a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl sprinkled with peanuts more than once and without issue. Proscuitto also comes in for a squinting at, as it had been part of the crepes I made for dinner, and a novelty in his diet… but he’s a regular and slightly startling consumer of ham. We await science’s word.
