Poor little boy in the backseat. . .
weary from a crazy night. . . his first (can we wish only) trip to the emergency room . . .
scared. . . and voicing his pain. . . his impatience with people who didn't understand. . . or feel. . . a strange place full of strange people. . .
cries. . . and no!. . .
we survived Lukey's first emergency room drama. . . thankful for the kind people who brought us to the back right away. . .ahead of people who had been waiting hours. . . and seen right away. . .to find an ear infection in one ear. . .
kindness. . .gentleness. . .helping him with an ease flustered parents grope at. . .
thankful to be at home among his family and cherished boy things. . . resting easy and healing. . .
