Debbie Downing...and other confessions.

...that I was really overwhelmed by the love and support you've all shown Trace and I after his accident.  I had written the post late Saturday evening as a way to vent and let out my pain and frustration with the whole ordeal and wasn't really expecting such a wonderful response from the blogging community.  Thank you all, you've really helped to make this whole thing a lot easier to handle.

...I can't get over the HORRIBLE experience we had at Guam Memorial Hospital.  One or two mistakes are forgivable, but seriously, you'd expect that being the only hospital on Guam since forever, they should have a handle on things by now.  Nope, not even fucking close.  Didn't request for x-rays until we were already out the door, waited for x-rays and results for about 5 hours, gave us the wrong person's x-ray images after we were transferred...really, #icant.

...that it's already 2:30pm here (12:30am Kathy's time) and I'm still in the middle of writing this, so I know I won't be near the top spot on the linkup today, but I'm okay with it.  I'd been off for the past two days and was supposed to be off all week but I had to come in to work today because there's so much that needed to be done.  With everything else going on right now, top spot on the Humpday Confessions isn't really priority today.

...I'm actually a little glad I came in to work today because it makes everything feel like it's getting back to normal and that things will be fine.  Staying busy keeps my mind from wandering and freaking out about upcoming appointments, the surgery to take out the metal plate, hospital bills, catching up with housework, etc.

...this whole experience has solidified my goals for budgeting and starting my own business.  I want to be in a place where we are financially stable enough to handle emergencies as they come as well as be able to spend more time with my family and work at a pace that will allow me to take as much time as I need to be around them while still being able to support them and their dreams in the future.

...these confessions are more somber than most so I didn't feel comfortable plugging in some goofy gifs.  Sorry if I seem like a Debbie Downer today, I'm just still trying to get past all the craziness.  I'll be back with a kick-ass post later tomorrow, promise.

  1. A post can be kick ass without gifs and this one was. I still cant believe there is one hospital. I live on an island too with only 1.5 million people and we have several hospitals! Sighs. I do hope Trace is much better. :)

  2. That really sucks that the hospital was so terrible, it just makes every situation seem worse. It's alright to be a Debbie Downer sometimes, but I do hope things start looking up for you soon.

  3. I'm so glad your little boy got better care at the other hospital. I can't believe they almost let him leave the first one! He looks like he is a strong boy & I hope he will do just fine.

  9. Sometimes you need these times to step back and reevaluate. It seems like that's just what you've done. Nothing wrong with that!! I'm glad Trace is on the mend. Those hospital mistakes are unacceptable.

  10. Don't worry about this being a downer post. I think it makes everyone more human when you speak the truth. Hope things are going okay for you, and your son.
