Our New Hangout
The Emergency Room has become our new hangout. Last Saturday (the 3rd) Ed went to the ER for severe abdominal pain...among other symptoms. Turns out he has an umbilical hernia. Then, just this past Friday night (the 9th), we went back to the ER because Ed was having such severe headaches and nausea. This is a big deal for him to go to the hospital because he absolutely hates them. The diagnosis? Rebound headaches from the pain medicine given the weekend before, as well as a side effects from the other medication they gave him. Lovely. But he's feeling better now, and that's what matters. Okay, two trips isn't really enough to consider the ER our new hangout......but I think three definitely qualifies. Edwin has been sick with the flu since Saturday. Vomiting, diarrhea, cough, stuffy nose,etc. My poor baby!!! His pediatrician's office was concerned about dehydration, so on Monday morning at 5am, we made our standard trip to the ER. Thankfully he did not have to get an IV and we were able to just take care of him back at home. He still isn't feeling the greatest, but at least he's not dehydrated. Now, on top of all that, I'm sick. Headache, fever, sore throat, stuffy head, etc. Let's all pray that Ed doesn't get it too!!!
