Remember how Grandy saved the day for those 14 boys? Remember my 2 extra credit points I earned for busting my butt and getting those boys to a new camp within hours?
Well...take those points back because Ty called me on Tuesday to say he had a tummy ache. No vomit, no other discharges, no fever. Grandy tells him to rest, have some sprite, and call me later.
Seriously? Grandy could not let him come home for a "tummy ache". He was so looking forward to it!! Maybe he could just nap it off.
Well, he ended up getting checked out yesterday in the morning by one of the leaders. They brought him down, and we took him to the doctor. Doctor sends us to the ER because she's worried about his appendix.
The ER doc wasn't overly concerned about the appendix. In fact, he wasn't concerned at all. What was funny? All the questions they asked my boy about his poo.
You read that right...he was very confused as to why there was SO much interest in his poop habits.
1. When was the last time you went?
2. Was it hard?
3. What color was it?
4. When was your last Bowel Mooooovement? (he just winced)
Have you ever sat in a room while a 12 year old tries to figure out the answers to these?
1. Went last night.
2. Not that hard...but my tummy hurt.
3. I went in an outhouse and didn't look...wouldn't know which was mine.
4. What's THAT?!?
Good times indeed.
So, we're on "Watch the Belly Watch 2008" at the moment. Liquid diet, rest, and back to the doctor.
I guess I shouldn't have tried to talk him in to staying?
Ugh...I'll temporarily relinquish my Mommy Card now.
