I need some help cracking the "what a woman says vs what she means" code. Here is the back story of events: 1. My daughter has a fever last night, we decide to see how she is in the morning to see if she goes to school or not. 2. My wife "stubs" her toe on something. We find a broken sewing needle on the floor, but cannot see anything in the cut. She cleans it up and throws a bandaid on the boo boo. 3. My daughter wakes up this morning and still is not quite right. No school for her. I run out to Walmart at 8 am to grab some sick little kid supplies (juice, popsicles, etc). 4. My wife says her foot is still hurting, but in a different spot. I say, "why don't we just run into the office and zap an xray to see if something is there." Oops. 5. We phone our GP this morning (9 am-ish) just to ask if we should head straight for the ER or go give Urgent Care a try. He's not in yet. We decide to gamble on Urgent Care. 6. We go to urgent care, with sick kids in toe, and they say they should be able to get the needle out (we do ask specifically if they can do this here, or if we should go get in line at the ER). Me and the kids wait in the waiting room for about an hour before getting a call from my wife's cell phone. She's still waiting for the doc to see her and says I should take the kids home and wait for her to call. 7. It is now 1:40 PM, I've cancelled my entire day by now, I've had two updates from my wife that they are taking another xray and still trying... WTF? If it was me, I would have given up and referred her out by now. Now the code: She wants me to stay here with the kids, but it is driving me nuts waiting and waiting. I feel bad she is there alone. I want to call my folks to come over and watch the kids while I run out to be with her. So, obey the wife and stay here while feeling guilty that she is alone... OR... disobey her order and go be at her side, while the doctors muck around inside and eventually send us off to the ER for another long wait?
