ER Visit

I am sorry for not updating yesterday but we had a very eventful evening.

I planned a well thought out blog post but we ended up in the ER for 4 hours with a sick boy.

It started thursday night after conferences.  I took the kids to Mcdonalds for dinner because D got called into work and I just didn't feel like cooking.  G took 2 bites of his burger and complained of a tummy ache and went to bed an hour early.

On Friday morning he said he still didn't feel the greatest but wanted to go to school anyway so I gave him some Tylenol and sent him anyway.  After school he seemed ok so life went on until dinner.

At dinner he started complaining of a tummy ache again and said it hurt to the touch and it seemed hard so we decided to take him in to see what was going on.

He had to pee in a cup, had a ultrasound, and 2 x-rays and they still weren't sure what was going on so they sent us home with instructions to come back if it gets worse or the pain doesn't go away in 12 hours.

The good news is that today he seems back to his old self and went to his dad's anyways.

I do have to say a huge thank you to K because D was still working so it was just me at home with the kids when all of this was going on.  D suggested leaving K at home so I only had 2 kids to worry about but I chose to take K with anyway to help keep an eye on Z while I was dealing with G.  

So thanks so much K for being a good big brother and as much as you were worried about G you stepped up and watched Z for me and I appreciate it so much more than you will ever understand.


  1. I'm glad that he seems better! I was worried. K is such a good big brother!

  2. Poor little guy. Glad he's feeling better though. Thanks for sharing with #SmallVictoriesSunday linkup.
