to describe today. The main mission was to get our asses to Columbus, Ohio for thegrandsons dental appointment at OSU. He had some major work done there when he was four and with the "lousy" insurance coverage thedaughter has, this is the only place to have procedures performed.
All was going well, and I thought I remembered the exact route to the hospital/clinic, but I was mistaken. We became misdirected, as I never get lost, and took me awhile to get back on track - thus, we were twenty minutes late. Actually that was no problem to the staff, so all worked out well.
Thegrandson was basically to have a screening and then set up appointments for whatever was deemed necessary. After two hours, the dentist comes out and starts explaining the care we have to give, for the tooth that was pulled. That was a shocker. It appears that a back molar was abscessed which called for an immediate extraction. Thegrandson never once complained of any pain whatsoever - and we had no idea about that problem. So everything turned out well and we have to return on July 8th I believe.
So now we are on our way back home at 3:40pm. Leaving this facility is a breeze, take 315N to I70E and it's a straight shot home, except...every trip we have made, there has ALWAYS been a major accident on the east side of downtown on I70. This was no different. We were stalled in traffic for almost a half hour. I took my camera this morning, thinking I might find something to photograph - now we have an accident. Yes, I did get pictures, but I forgot I gave my son the card reader for this particular camera - and now cannot download them. Grrr. This was a serious three car accident, 6 ambulances, 2 firetrucks and 5 police cars. As we got close, thedaughter took a couple of pictures - but as soon as I saw the small children being tended to - the camera was turned off and I was heartbroken. I'm not one to photograph lurid or morbid pictures. That would be insensitive.
The entire two hour drive home (after stopping and getting my Big Boy sandwiches) was crazier than hell. All the lunatic drivers were out in full force and now I have the Queen of Road Rage driving, as the accident had me upset. I contemplated finding a drug dealer for something...anything!!
We arrived home at 7:15pm and to be honest, I am wiped out. It is now 9 pm and I'm getting a shower and crashing for the night. So I will check you all out tomorrow. It appears the internet has been repaired and I can access my faves again - Hooray.
Have a lovely and great Memorial Day Holiday all. Later.............
