10 Questions About…

Hospital Adventure by Ann Treacy

Yesterday we had two girls home with the flu. But it wasn’t either of them that got to have the unscheduled tour of the Emergency room. It was Aine. (Shocker!) She was standing on the kitchen chair when apparently it flipped backwards and she smacked her head off the floor.

She cried for a few minutes and bled all over the $25 shirt I bought her in Kilkenny when she threw up on us – but she rebounded pretty well. I wasn’t afraid of a concussion but I did worry that she needed stitches. So, we took the bus to the hospital. They looked at her head. And I have to say that once they really looked at it I could see that she really had cracked her head open. It was very gross in a cool sort of way. In the gross theme I will say that I could have poked my finger into her head and touched her brain – if I had wanted.

Luckily they were able to glue her head together, which again was kind of gross/cool. She didn’t cry or fuss at the hospital, which was pretty impressive. We stopped for an ice cream on the way home – luckily the bus stop is near a convenience store.

I asked Aine to talk about her adventure on the video below – but as you’ll see she preferred to talk about her life here in Cork. (Not sure where that came from.)

Ow! I’m afraid that video looks a bit like you were trying to protect yourself from a lawsuit. The whole “I fell down the stairs” can be tricky.

I’m glad you are okay Aine and that your mom didn’t poke your brain.

We were practicing for witness protection – Hi my name is Aine. I live in Cork and I fall a lot.

Ann, I can hardly believe, looking at the top of this page, how much your children have grown. They look so big. Pleas tell me they don’t grow faster over there. rob

I have been amazed at how much older they all seem.
