We're all OK?

Today everyone is OK? I swear the world is toying with me! Ben woke a couple of times in the night crying and feeling sick and you could hear the air moving around in his belly from the doorway. This morning his tummy films showed that his stomach looked pretty close to what it looked like last Monday. What we assume was gas build up had resolved itself. So not great, but not worse and no upper GI, YAY! But, that nagging little feeling at the edge of my mind is that this was not a stomach bug so how often will this happen? He just missed two day's of school again due to stomach pain. I guess I'm just not sure how to feel about this. Relief that Ben isn't headed for surgery tomorrow, fear that he will be in this amount of pain regularly, confusion about what is exactly going on and of course more fear and a bit more confusion. I can't shake the feeling that we dodged one this time and now we are just waiting nervously for the hammer to drop. And my big dumb dog? Walking around like nothing ever happened. Toying with me. All of them... Must be time for a party ; )

There is definately something going on, here too. Can't be the full moon for you and me, so how about sun spots or something? I think a pary is an excellent way to deal with the anxiety of not-knowing and waiting. Go for it! And if you send me a ticket, I'll come. Promise.

Hi there. I just found your blog, and have been reading through posts. I hope Ben is feeling better as you read this. I have a 5-year-old (soon to be 6) with CP, he has used the same walker that Ben has. I've added your blog to my list, please come visit sometime.
