Emergency!


So, how did you spend your Sunday morning? Relaxing with breakfast in bed? Sunning at the beach? We had the best intentions of spending a relaxing family day together, but no sooner had we arrived at the beach when... Aack! My oldest son fell to the ground rolling around in intense abdominal pain. Since he is also known as "The Drama King" we weren't sure if it was all a show...or not. But when we suggested going to the hospital and he didn't say "no" we figured it had to be for real.
Just as quickly as it came on, it went away about an hour later, but not before having to CARRY all 42k of him into the emergency room, having blood drawn and analyzed, fever measured, belly poked and...the best part of all...then having to drive ourselves to Corato, a town about 20 minutes away, because in our hospital there is NO pediatric ward!
He's fine now, was fine yesterday afternoon, actually, and that's the best possible thing. I think it was GAS!

That happened to my youngest son. A sudden sharp pain on his left side left him screaming. After two in the emergency at the children's hospital the said it was constipation and gave him a laxative!
Kids...

It happens. Then consider that actually there's a sort of intestine's virus (i've quickly got in fact). BTW I'm happy that he's fine :-)

Thanks Fabrizio, luckily it went away as quickly as it came on!
