Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Hoosier medical update

We are home. The boy is pale and wobbly, but improving after meds put a check rein on the nausea. Vomiting stopped, clear liquids are staying down, and his color is slowly returning to its normal rosy brown. The good folks at our local ER were exactly what we needed: prompt, efficient, competent and caring. If you're ever in the area and need medical care, St. Margaret's is a good place to go.

Our eldest is also home, the nurse having called from the high school (five minutes after we walked in the door from the ER!) to report that she was ill as well. It does not, thank heaven, appear to be the same bug: hers is the more typical migraine/upset stomach combination. She made a beeline for her bedroom, and we will likely not hear from her for several hours.

Can I just note here that sometimes being a parent is more fun than others?

Thanks for your prayers and concern. God may neither slumber nor sleep; I'm going to bed.

So glad your boy is better. It is so exhausting, physically and emotionally when your child is sick.
