77/365... ER visit joy

Just when you think the day is going exactly to plan, you receive a phone call.

Come home quick. Carter is screaming in pain. He says his stomach hurts really bad.

He isn't the kind of kid to scream in pain.

As a mom, the mind starts spinning. And it thinks the worst.

I rushed him to the ER. By the time we got there he was feeling better.

In fact, he wanted ice cream.

The dr. gave us the results of the x-ray and blood work. Gas. I rushed my child to the ER for gas.

ER visit joy.

Disclaimer: I'm not settling on the "gas" diagnosis. He has had several tummy issues lately and I plan to have him looked at by his pediatrician.

77/365

I'm sorry! I couldn't help but laugh at your comment. I hope it is just gas. :)

Scary! I'm glad you followed your instincts to go, though. I pray nothing's going on with his tummy!

Well, as we know, gas can be very painful! pain is a good reason to go to the ER. I bet they see it more often than we'd like to think. I hope he feels better quickly and that there is nothng else amiss.
