outfit of the day(bird): bedside manner





dress, necklace ~ Forever 21
shoes ~ Bakers
belt ~ vintage, thrifted

I got a call from school the other day while I was at work. I know the nurse's number pretty much by heart because apparently my kids can't just trip and fall like normal kids. They seem to trip and fall and break an arm or require stitches. This call was just that, Eva tripped and fell off the slide. She had a hole, yes, it was more of a hole than a cut, on her chin that luckily only required two stitches.

We went to urgent care, and luckily didn't have too long of a wait. However, the doctor that helped us was rather odd. To start things off, he washed his hands, dropped the paper towel and picked it up off the floor, defeating the whole washing your hands step. He then literally dropped every cap of every bottle he opened on the floor. When looking for the correct medication, he opened and closed every cabinet three times and still didn't find what he needed (the nurse found in in the front of the cabinet right away).

But the worst was when I basically had to assist him. He was using a q-tip with numbing agent on her chin and he asked mom to (sorry this is gross) actually stick it IN the cut and hold it there. I don't have the stomach for that, but did it anyways because what else was I supposed to do? Here's hoping we get a discount on our bill for my work.

The next day, Eva had some major bragging rights at school. All is well.

ps, this is the outfit I wore to the Greater Twin Cities United Way WINGs Flight of Fashion. It really isn't an:outfit of the day".

  2. My kids have been very lucky. No stitches or broken bones (yet?). I think sometimes doctors moonlight at urgent care centers and maybe this isn't his specialty? Just a guess, but still- Get it together, doc! :-0
    I love the pink peeking out from your dress. Cheeky,

  6. Aww poor Eva! I'm glad she's okay! And that is so weird about the doctor being clumsy...not exactly a trait you want in a doctor, ha.

  11. OMG!!!! I am so squeamish in those instances--there is NO WAY I would have been able to do that! What a goofy doctor! I hope Eva feels better!

  12. Oh my goodness! I have no words for that doctor. I probably would have started saying things! Hope Eva is doing better! You look fabulous in that dress! Love that hair clip!

  13. Okay that is totally gross! Big hugs to Eva! How brave is she? That Dr. sounds like he is still a resident and not a real Dr.. Not a good sign. Good thing it wasn't for something more serious.

    The lace detail on this dress is gorgeous!

  16. Have a grand Easter.

    Very pretty poses here Megan. Hope Eva's wound is all better. Too bad that doctor was such a dunce. With the stuff I'm experiencing lately, I would have walked out of that place, if I would have been you. (no, seriously)

  17. As a school nurse, I have threatened to remove the slide (or ban recess altogether!) due to slide injuries... we call it The Stitches Slide. It is my enemy. Glad to here she's ok though! Love the va-va-voom dress!

  18. It sounds like that doctor needs to retire. Glad to hear your daughter is ok :)

  19. I really love the gold belt you wore! I was a pretty careful kid but even I ended up in the emergency room with a need for stitches on my chin back in the day (and my little sister had to get her chin stitched together about 6 months ago)--one of those rites of passage type things!

  20. It's amazing what mum's can make themselves do. That's odd about the doctor and it makes me think too old or on medication. I'm impressed that your daughter's school has a nurse. We don't have nurses at our schools and basically the school secretary, principal and one other person on staff are required to have first aid.
    You look gorgeous in that dress. It's so pretty. I"m glad that outfit was for going out somewhere special and not for a trip to the hospital. That would be a waste!
    Happy Easter, Megan bird. Chirp Chirp.

  21. Cute dress. Has an elegant feel to it. Sorry 'bout your daughter. And the incompetent MD.

  22. Glad little Eva is okay! I can sure relate to this story! Both our boys seemed to get into bizarre scrapes on the playground and while visiting at other kids' house. Never a dull moment (LOL)! Lovely dress, Megan! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

    On the fashion side of things you look SEXY! Love the peekaboo bra.

  24. Okay Megan, spill it! How you went to such a terrible day and ended up looking like that is mindbending. I love that delicate dress with a bit of lace it is really simple and beautiful. I love when you turn on the side you can see a little bit of a bathing suit top that is so clever. You look awesome. Kisses, Elle
