Life in the ER


11 hours in the ER last night. Ethan had a bad reaction to medicine he was taking. It caused his digestional track to slow down (which is a bad thing for him). It made it appear that he had a bad appendix. The only way to tell for sure that his appendix was OK, was to give him a ct scan. He had to drink some dye and wait 2 hour before the scan. Only because of the medicine side effect, it took 10 hours to run its course. Anyway he did not have appendicitis (sp?). They discontinued the drug, for now, and we will let nature take its course.

We left at 4am. But on the up side, I got the day off.
