Never a Dull Moment...

Zack has been having an intense headache since Friday morning. No cold, no fever, nothing else but pain. Of course persuading him to go to the hospital or the doctor is harder than pulling a crocodiles tooth! LOL!

Then last night we had a full house and as Sean and I were doing nightly bedtime rituals with the little's Ryan was playing airplane with Nolan. (You know, you lay on the floor with your feet up in the air and the child lays across them and flies.) Anyhow, Ryan got a leg cramp and Nolan started to fall and Ryan grabbed his arm and voila instant pain for Nolan. He cried non-stop for a long time. That is VERY unusual for our sweet boy. He is such a happy joy and if he cries is easily consoled but there was no consoling him last night. We felt his bones and looked him over and everything looked fine but he wouldn't move his right arm so we had the older boys take over the bedtime routine with the little's so we could take Nolan to the hospital. I did try calling the pediatrician but the Dr. on call had an answering machine message stating that they were so busy with flu cases that if you left a message it could be a 2 hour wait for a phone call! So, off we went to the ER. He was so stiff and still and wouldn't talk, smile or snuggle. Not like my boy at all. The Dr. took one look at it said it was most likely nursemaid's elbow (the tendon gets pulled off the bone/dislocated elbow) manipulated it quickly and he was good as new. Within in minutes he was using his arm and wanting to walk around and check things out. Soon he was doing a little dance entertaining Sean and I. LOL! By the time we reached the car he was playing peek-a-boo and laughing and talking. He didn't want to go to bed  when we got home and it was after 11:00 until he was asleep! We are so thankful he is just fine and to hear him happy laugh again!

This morning Zack didn't go to work (which is a HUGE deal for him) so I knew his head was still hurting. Did I mention he's had blurry vision, lack of appetite, sharp pains in his head? Yea, this mom was done. I called Dr. set up appointment and he's on his way there now. Praying for discernment for the Dr. and that Zack tells them all about the pain, and above so they can have an accurate assessment.

So, that's our morning so I said, never a dull moment. Hey, at least I haven't had any RAD issues to deal with yet today! Woo Hoo that means it COULD be a GOOD day!!! Thank you Jesus!

Thankful you found out what one of your "babies" was dealing with. How is Zack doing? May you enjoy time with your family and be especially grateful for the LOVE, PROTECTION, & PEACE that we have through our relationship with Christ.

Goodness, that's quiet a morning. Glad it was nothing too serious with Nolan. Hope Zach is feeling better.
