Wow Theresa!!! I am shocked that they would risk you even getting an infection!!! That is HORRIBLE!!! Leaving that needle in there? I'm so sorry you have to deal w/ this!!!
When Eri was in the ER last Monday, we had our 5 hour wait. First thing, when you walk into the ER, it says if you have chest pains, tell the staff IMMEDIATELY , which I did....and they had us sit and wait for at least 30 - 45 minutes b/f seeing us!!!(good ol' FL for you...I assure you if she was geriatric and not a child, she would have been taken ASAP. Then the doc that FINALLY showed up...around 4.45 hours later, told me not to even ask or talk to him about diabetic related issues, he is JUST an ER doc...and a cocky one at that.
I pray that all works out for you!!!
