|Sophie passing the time at Hasbro ER.|
We were directed to sit in the waiting room after we had checked in. When we were taken into triage a few minutes later, the CNA told me that we would probably be sent down to Fast Tracks which is similar to a walk-in. I was relieved. Maybe we wouldn't be there as long as I had feared. I asked the CNA if she could get me some hospital socks since I had forgotten shoes for Sophie in my rush to get her to the hospital. She said she would be right back and left us in the room. About 15 minutes later, a nurse came over and asked if she could help us. When I told her we were waiting for socks, she got another girl to get them and then told us that there was no way we would be heading to Fast Tracks. "She is going to need stitches," she said. My heart sank. I've had stitches and they hurt!
It was at about 9:00 when things started to turn ugly. Sophie was over tired and she got silly. She began running around the waiting room in her slipper socks which almost caused another injury! I decided that holding her would be my best bet which was met with screaming, thrashing, and kicking! I was just about to lose my mind when our name was called.
