Working Hard to Get My Fill

Griffin went back to the ER on Wednesday afternoon. I think it was Wednesday. Was it Wednesday? Fuck if I can remember anymore, it was about 12 hours after he was discharged the last time.

ANYWAY, so back to the hospital we went. And a phone call to Aaron. Something along the lines of get your fucking ass home now.

So, hospital. Yeah, two IV bags later and they still wanted to admit him for 24 hours. Griffin begged to come home and the doctors allowed it after eight hours.

Aaron got home Thursday morning, six hours after Griffin was discharged and then I went to bed. I had been up over 48 straight.

Aaron brought home gifts.


And I deserved every last bumpily goodness of my Lego gifts. EVERY DAMN LAST ONE.

I think I need another nap.

(Apparently, Griffin has some funky stomach virus. In the beginning, the doctors thought he had an appendicitis. But now they don't think so [it's still not certain]. The funky stomach virus has not fever, no nothin' except for not making them eat and drink. And then they get dehydrated. And then they get constipated. Then they are in really bad pain from the constipation. Griffin didn't eat or drink anything for over three days. I guess this virus is going around, so if you notice a kid not eating and drinking, BRIBE THEM. I made Griffin all his favorites -- bacon, homemade french fries, strawberries -- and offered him all the contraband food you could imagine, Pepsi, popsicles, he was having NONE of it. Punk ass kid. But! He is better now! Not great, but better.)

But still no idea what's going on with Griffin? I hate it when that kind of thing happens to us with Max and I just have to sit around for the situation to reveal itself more thoroughly.

Well....presents are good. Being home is good. Doing a little bit better is good. Not knowing what the flip is wrong ain't so good....but what can you do? I'm glad Aaron is home.
Hope this weekend is E.R. free.

Sheesh! Glad to hear he is at least on the mend. You have had a heck of a couple of weeks. It's gotta get better right.

You're officially over the hump, girl. Sleep, eat, drink and sleep some more this weekend. You SO deserve it!!!

So happy to hear he's on the mend. And glad that Aaron came home in time to relieve you before he leaves again.

I'm supposing he visited the Lego store again? Woo-hoo for the Lego molds!! Now show us your ice!

That sounds awful! I'm glad Aaron came home so you could get a little sleep. And poor Griffin! Blah. I was wondering if he had to go back in, since you hadn't posted.

I hope you managed to get enough sleep too?
Man, he must have been sick to refuse any of the contraband food!
Just think - now that he's feeling better, you've got more kindergarten to look forward to! (groan.....sorry)

Still thinking about Mr. G and hope he's feeling better. Is there something at school that brought this all on? Anyway, I hope he's on the mend.

Chickenbells said...

Oh no...I am so sorry this is happening! I am also happy that you finally got some sleep though. I hope it gave you enough energy to play with all the new toys!

I remember when my niece went to school for only 1 semester before my mom decided to homeschool...we were all sick (a lot!) I hope that he is better soon...
