Broken Plans?

In roughly 44 hours, I’m supposed to be checking into the motel for a week of relaxation. Note-I said supposed to be. Son2 just texted me that while in the mosh pit of the Warped Tour, he had his nose broken.

Me: Are you sure it’s broken?

Him: Mom, I look like fucking Owen Wilson! First Aid said go to the hospital and have it rebroken and set. Will you set it for me?

What the fuck am I?? Florence fucking Nightingale??

Oh yeah…..Son2 is the one with NO INSURANCE!

Update later……


Nose-fractured. Set?-No. Apparently no one in a hospital knows how to set a broken nose. We are leaving for vacation as planned. Son2 and Hubs will come back early to see an ENT so that he can have the nose set (after the swelling goes down.) What a night!

    FYI – I lost a tooth in the mosh pit of Alien Sex Fiend in Germany. Fun times.

    I know what it’s like to have no insurance and be thrust upon a semi-competent medical system. While in the hospital recovering from surgery, they offered me Malox (sp?) for no reason. I passed, then ate breakfast with a sausage patty the size of a large hamburger. It made me seriously ill. I asked for anything that could give me relief, but they said they had nothing. I asked for Pepto Bismol or something similar, but since I couldn’t remember the Malox brand name I got nothing. Instead I had to load up on pain killers until the gastric pain they induced passed.

    Um, I think that was life’s reminder that things change very quickly.

    As if you needed to be reminded again.

    Hope the setting goes well in a week, but more importantly — have a great vacation filled with many nose jokes.

    Blondeblogger-Son2 and I plan on cracking open the alcohol and sitting poolside for the rest of Sunday afternoon. Hubs is planning on SLEEP. We all need it. Babygirl is bringing a friend and will probably case the immediate area for cute boys!

    Grant-Thank God it only cost us $175 for the ER but the doc’s bill is way more with “financing available”! With all of the hospitality you received, I’m surprised you didn’t stay longer! :))

  14. Metalmom said:

    on July 26, 2008 at 9:13 AM

    Froggywoogie-Yeah, he’s recovering. Apparently it’s not as painful as it looks.He’s just angry that it has compromised his vacation.

    on July 26, 2008 at 9:14 AM

    libragirl-I am SO glad that it wasn’t his teeth! I can’t imagine the cost with that!

    Poppy-I could break my neck with how fast things have happened here! :o I’ll keep my nose clean instead of sniffing around for nose jokes. I wouldn’t want him to get bent out of shape. =))

    Trukindog-Drunks don’t seem to injured as much.It’s more the folks trying to break them up!I intend to keep the sand from my bits and pieces and all the little creases.

    I ‘set’ my own nose once – broken in a softball game. Hurt like HELL, I almost pissed my pants, but I did it. Probably wasn’t as messed up as son’s though…much luck with that!
