Hockey, ER, and Running

Whoa, I had better slow down.  I had one whole post in February.

Hockey.
Hockey is more than just a sport....it is a lifestyle.  Before our family was involved, I was baffled by this statement.  I feel like I live at an ice area, I have had concession stand popcorn for dinner more times than I can count, and I see some kids parents more than I see my own spouse.  We have been suckered into this cult like lifestyle and the kids all love it.  It sure makes the winter fly; I feel like I woke up and it is spring!  Two of my kids finished up this weekend and my oldest will be done next week.  We will have a whole week until spring league starts!  Are other sports as crazy as this one?

Emergency Room.
A few weeks ago, I went out to lunch with a friend.  We went to Chipotle and I ordered a vegetarian bowl with the fixin's.  I came back to my office to scarf it down.  Not long after my first bite my throat felt tight, my eyes were starting to swell, and I felt like I was going to puke.  I choked down a couple of Benedryl and then looked at my Epi.  I was a complete chicken shit and couldn't stab myself so I flagged down my friend and told her to start her weekend early and take me to the ER.

I got to the ER on campus and told them I was having trouble breathing.  They wasted no time getting me to a room.  And then I waited.  The nurse finally came in and asked what was the matter.  I choked out I couldn't breathe and was having an allergic reaction.  I will quote the nurse...."Um, we are really swamped right now and I am not sure when a doctor will be in to see you".  REALLY?  I am having a life threatening reaction and that is what you say????!!!.  Then I emphasized that I was really having a hard time breathing by pointing to my neck (as if my eyes, lips and face swelling weren't enough of a clue).  Then the following conversation occurred:
         Nurse:  Okay....let me get a few questions answered and then I will get the doctor
         Me:  How about a shot of EPI?
         Nurse:  What are you allergic to?
         Friend:  Guac....she had guac.
         Nurse:  Oh that would TOTALLY bum me out.  I live on Guac.
         Me:  Get the shot.
         Nurse:  What kind of reaction did you have?
         Me:  Look at me!
         Nurse:  Okay, wow.....what time did you react?
         Me:  about 15 minutes ago.
         Nurse:  Do you feel safe at home?  Do you always wear your seat belt?
         Me:  Seriously?  These questions are a priority! (thinking, you are not going to feel safe if I don't get
                 that damned shot).

My friend and I looked at each other in disbelief and then she told me to throw myself on the ground and fake chest pains.  Finally she came in and gave me the shot.  She left and left me with a barf bag....which cause an uproar in our room.  You see, my friend and I have the mentality of a 12 year old boy.  The photo below is a photo of my arm in the (unused) barf bag that resembled a horse condom.  At least we could have a good laugh when we were there.

I spend about 3 hours hooked up and felt a lot better.  They wanted me to stay another few hours but I sprung myself to make sure I got to my kid's hockey game on time.  I have priorities!  Moral of the story....no more guac, friends make the ER a lot more fun, and next time I will use my damned EPI pen.
Running.
Well, this is not going as well as I hope.  I feel like I am in a better spot this year and I am working out over lunch but I am having a hard time sneaking in my running.  After this week, my life will free up a lot because hockey is technical done and one of my classes will be done.  I think I was half nuts to sign up for a marathon with everything else going on.  But then again....am I ever sane?

So yes....I am in training mode....16 weeks to go!   Are you in training mode?  What are you training for?

Oh my gosh. That nurse! Sersiously! AH! Glad you are ok!

I am just running for fun with some halves on the calendar ;)

Love that your family is all in to hockey!

Kayla said...

Wow! I cannot believe that nurse. I am shocked that she was that slow to act. The ER I spent a couple days in for school thankfully didn't run like that. Trouble breathing meant immediate treatment

Michelle said...

We have been living the hockey life in my house too - what a crazy long season and it's soon to be replaced with lacrosse - equally crazy!

Cannot believe that ER nurse! Glad you're ok!

Nora said...

You have GOT to be kidding me with that nurse. That's just scary!!! I hope you call the patient advocate line and give them some feedback. She is in the wrong business.

The horse condom is hilarious!!!! I swear I have a 14 year old trapped inside my middle-aged body, I laughed out loud when I saw the picture!

Losing Lindy said...

I can't believe she waited that long to get the epi pen. Was your friend too scared to give you the shot? I think I would be nervous about it too.

Delane said...

LOL You always crack me up. That photo made my day!

training for a 1/2 in July. Just picked up the c2 5K AGAIN. MUST get my running mojo back and get in shape stat so I don't die on the course!

Ella said...

Wow...unbelievable nurse. what a story!

Megsie said...

How the hell are you having spring? Really? You only live across the freeway from me and we have had a foot of snow dumped on us!

That nurse? Should be fired.

Nice to see you at the rink the other day! :)

If you are a women and planning to enjoy something like real coitus then toys like dildo is
the best choice. Technology has moved on now and you can also get dildos that feel very realistic (like cyberskin dildos but cleaner and safer).

heard screaming at police raiding her store, "You can have my dildo when you rip it from my cold, dead, callused hands.

You can of course also apply non-medical treatments if you are a man who needs
a little assistance. Cholesterol clogs arteries and allows less blood flow
to. Doctors can help cure erectile dysfunction by injection erection stimulating
medicine on the base of the penis.

I think I might have a Protestant viewpoint, it doesn't seem that the trucks are louder than normal? Make sure to get all sex dolls and fake vagina are made of latex. Not to worry, go and bath and dressed then you relax for five hour. Plus, the penis is in a good sex toy cleaner and sanitiser to leave your Fake Vagina lying around as you wait for it to turn on lights or call for help.
