Boo, Yay, and a Birthday!

Tuesday evening was a big boo for us. Miss S started having severe stomach pains
around 8:45 Tuesday night. She has had tummy pains and problems, on and off
since the discovery that she is gluten intolerant, but this pain was sharper and more
intense than she had ever experienced before. She was in so much pain that we 
decided it was time to head to the emergency room for help.

We arrived at the ER around 9:15. About two hours later, she was finally settled 
into a room and an IV started. 

They tested blood samples, urine samples and eventually ordered a CT scan of her
abdomen to try to determine what was going on.

We waited and waited and waited some more to hear the results of the tests.

Still waiting at 2:30 in the morning! 

No "life threatening" issue was found, so we were released with orders to get an
appointment with an Enterologist as soon as possible. We feel like the next logical
step will be to do an upper GI endoscopy. We have an appointment to see her doctor
next week, and hope we can get a procedure scheduled soon after to give us some
answers. Seeing your child sick and in pain is a terrible, horrible feeling!

Wednesday morning was a YAY. One of Miss S's Christmas presents finally arrived 
via Fed Ex.

She has wanted this ring for so long and we finally got it for her for Christmas.

I think it is so pretty on her little fingers. She is so happy with her beautiful new ring.

And in other exciting news....

My mom's best friend from high school is celebrating a birthday today! Not only is
she one of my mom's best friends, she is a precious and loyal reader of this blog too.

Martha Lynne, 

Mom, Miss S, and I want to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
(and many more!)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday, and I will see you tomorrow!
