Emma has been vomiting since Tuesday night. I thought she was better today b/c she ate a bowl of cereal. A few hours later she began throwing up and screaming with pain. It seemed to be focused on the right side so off we went to the ER sure we would have to have her appendix removed. This is not the child for surgery or any kind of test including medical ones. She panics, big time. She is so high strung that tonight when the doctor mentioned she needed to have some blood tests run, the child freaked out worrying she would fail. Crazy child. Anyway, turns out her intestines are paralyzed. I had no idea this could even happen but it does. It couldn't move the food she ate today so they gave her meds and she was giggling within an hour.
Right before this photo, the nurse put in her IV. Being the dramatic child she is, I blew off her comments that she couldn't move her arm afterward. I walked to the other side to see that she actually couldn't move it, the nurse accidentally taped her arm to the bed. I guess I should've believed her.
Tomorrow I am taking Cyr and Patches to spend the night with their Aunt and Uncle for the first time. I am so excited for them. Ella will be spending the night with my sister, Kiki. Ella has no idea and will be thrilled. I hate to just send her but no one else can go. Michael is acting out too much. Ruthie is sick. Ava steals. Emma probably needs another day to recover. I even offered for Rosa's kids to go but they have a visit with their Dad. Maybe I'll just see how Em is feeling.
