The IV Goes Drip Drip Drip Drip Drip…
Since Lauren still wasn’t better, I felt like we had to take her to the doctor’s. The Kaiser Permanente is Sunset is hellacious, however. Long waits in bad rooms overcrowded with people who are also sick or related to sick people and you’re all stuck there. I don’t understand why they can’t get simple stuff like waiting rooms and lighting correct. If I’d brought Lauren there, it would have sucked and made her worse. The staff is generally less good, too. One time at Sunset, they literally pulled a very sick Lauren from her room and stuck her back in the waiting room in the 15 minutes it took for me to walk and get a smoothie. Crazy. Fuckers.
Kaiser Glendale is much much nicer. Carpet and better chairs and the staff doesn’t snap at you the way they do at Sunset. So, we went there first thing this morning. They got Lauren right in. Good, nice Doctor. They helped Lauren and gave her drips and pills. Got her rehydrated and less nauseous very quickly and then we got the perscriptions we needed. Very positive experience and everyone from security guard to the nurses to the student doctor was great.
Back at home, Shane threw up again. He seems okay, though. Lauren’s resting right now and says she hasn’t felt as comfortable in three days. I’m tired, too.
