Flashback Friday

Before I started my blog here, I had a super fabulous blog at:


Some of my posts over there are my favorites. Seriously. So, because I am sick and have no energy to write a new post, I am going to entertain you with a flashback from February 20, 2008. Oh, and I chose this one because of another “vagina moment” we had at my house yesterday.

“The Straw that Broke the Camels Back.”

I had to take Alivia to Devos Children's Hospital today to have some tests done. One of the tests was a simple kidney ultrasound. The other test was a VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram), which long story short involves putting a catheter in and taking some pictures.

Alivia was uncooperative from the moment she woke up this morning, I think Lainey realized this and decided to join in the fun as well. I was to meet my mother in law on Alpine at 10:00 am to drop Lainey off to her. We made it, but it was nothing short of a miracle.

When we arrived at the hospital Alivia seemed to be doing well, and the first test went off without a hitch. The second one, the VCUG, was definitely touch and go. The tech told me that she does indeed have reflux, which is what they were testing for. (She had surgery for this in June 2008.)

After all was said and done we went to "Old McDonald's" for some chicken nuggets.

From there we went here:


so I could get my coffee fix, after the morning from hell.

Unfortunately, I had to go in because the manager had some free coupons for me because of an issue that occurred on Monday. We spoke to the manager for quite awhile. He was being very friendly with Alivia asking her lots of questions, but she was looking at him like he was an alien sent here to ruin her already bad day. Towards the end of our visit he was still trying to make conversation, but finding a topic was becoming difficult. This is what ensued:

Jason (Biggby owner/manager): "So are you and your mom just hanging out around town today?"

Alivia kind of looks at me shyly, so I respond with: "Well Alivia had to have some tests done at the hospital today. We're all done though, so we're on our way to pick up her little sister."

Jason: "Oh, I hope you didn't have to get poked!"

Again, Alivia just kind of looks at me shyly. I am seriously hoping she has temporarily become mute.

Jason: "You didn't have to get poked by a needle, did you?"

Alivia (glaring at him): "No. They had to put a straw in my vagina."

Oh. My. Word. When I got to the car I looked at my 10 free coffee coupons, and realized they could only be used at this exact Biggby location. Great.

RN Mama said...

Stephanie, he actually didn't miss a beat...and told Alivia about when he had open heart surgery and he woke up with a straw in (his unit) too! I wanted to die. Oh, and I forgot to mention, he was SUPER cute!
