sick to my stomach

Picked up dinner.
Went to the emergency room.
The kid barfed on me.
Walked around for 4 hours.
Came home.

Turns out the kid had a 102 degree fever. Luckily medicine via syringe and a nice vomiting on my favorite sweater seemed to cure him.

Hello, nightmare. I woke up with the worst stomach cramps on earth, basically crying it hurt so bad. The kid woke up with a fever again. Kid comes first. So I took him to the doctor and she suggested that he might have a bladder infection, since he had no signs of a cold. Aka, he'd get a catheter.

I freaked. I started bawling right there in the office. When I had my appendectomy the catheter lead to a series of infections that spans YEARS. So I could just assume the worst was coming this boys way, later in life. But I gave in, I'd rather know that he was fine then for something terrible to happen. A friend's baby had a bad kidney infection that lead to surgeries and I wouldn't want that to happen to my kid.

Anyway, he got through it and so did I. Meanwhile I still have stomach cramps.
