Day 8 – Second Bathroom Closet (And a Poo Story)

Today we are organizing the second bathroom closet! Or in my case, playing catch-up. Because... I spent the afternoon into the evening at the ER. With my son. Who was SCREAMING in pain and begging me to get him a doctor, so I finally took him to the ER because I had no idea what was going on. He kept saying it felt like a needle was pushing into his stomach. The pain was on his left, not right side, so I was pretty certain it wasn't appendicitis, but my doctor told me to take him to the ER just in case. The poor kid was in so much pain. We get there, check in, a nurse talks to him a bit, then we wait and wait and wait (you know how it is). Finally a doc comes in and tells us they're going to X-ray him. We get X-rays. $1000 later (I'm guessing but hoping not), the cause is revealed... Poop. My son had so much poop sitting in his intestines. You can imagine the delight of my son when he found this out. He thought it was so cool. We even got to take home the X-ray so he could show his friends. The long story short, if your child is screaming because of a pain in the lower left side of their tummy, get them some juice and load up on fiber and they'll be just fine.

The kid is alright.

(He wanted me to tell you that.)

 All to say, I did not clean the bathroom yesterday. Today, I will get it clean. Fortunately, I don't have a second bathroom closet, just a nook, and it's not so bad. Whew!
