Thank Goodness for Health Insurance!

Well, RevilleVille can confidently report we have been accident free for over a year... until now. I received a call from hubby stating he had fallen off the roof and broken his arm, followed by a prompt hang up. While rushing to leave work, i called the neighbors whom did not answer. I then called 911 not knowing the extent of his injuries. Let me tell you, that was the longest 20min drive home with my mind wandering to dark places,  hoping it was JUST a broken arm. When i arrived home, a fire truck was here and the firemen were in our home tending to Hubby. Shortly there after, the ambulance arrived and wisped him away to the hospital. Hubby was grateful for the temporary Morphine relief from his excruciating pain. I picked up Lil Rev from school and we spent the evening in the hospital. After xrays and an examination it was concluded that he broke his arm and would need surgery.
Sidenote: while in the emergency room i had reminded Hubby, in kid code, about our experience while pregnant with Lil Rev. Hubby had developed Plantar Fasciitis and i have many memories throughout my pregnancy of ME rubbing HIS feet due to his condition. I told Hubby his swan dive off the roof may have sealed the deal with our conceiving attempts as i would have to care for him now and history does repeat itself... we may be back in the hospital in 9 months. Big Ears Lil Rev picked up on the return visit comment and continued to ask why we would be back at the hospital in 9 months. I answered "with a follow up appointment for the Dr. to see Daddy's arm" = explanation diverted! We shall see...
Surgery was scheduled in 7 days so Hubby had to bear the pain (even though he was prescribed major pain meds), iced and elevated his arm and was as bored and uncomfortable as ever waiting in anticipating for his very first surgery from breaking his very 1st bone. I quickly became Nurse Wifey tending to his every need, tracking his frequent medication administration while Super Mom cared for Lil Rev. Unfortunately Mama Maid disappeared to compensate for this ordeal, which i am still trying to catch up. Surgery went well and Hubby went back to work less than a week after surgery. The surgery cost us $20. I even requested the intake nurse to repeat that total upon administration... it just sounded so good! Thank goodness for health insurance!
