The Latest...

Thank G-d,

Dovi seems to be back to normal!!!

He went to school yesterday and they told me he was a little sleepy. Today he actually took the bus on time and I have not gotten a call yet.

I seriously need a nap. Well I did fall asleep at 10:30 last night while watching a decorating show in bed. And it wasn't even a repeat-which must mean that I'm really tired.

But I realize that I haven't even told you guys about my loverly Saturday night. After almost 3 days on antibiotics and 3 days of Miralax, Dovi was still icky. Crisisy, no poop, etc.

His blood pressure was a stellar 180/130. I called my pediatrician. I swear, that woman is an angel. She takes such amazing care of all my kids, but for Dovi, she really goes above and beyond.

So she said that she really wanted us to go in to the ER to get him checked out-she wanted lots of blood work and an abdominal xray.

So we valiumed him up to get the blood pressure down, tylenoled him up to get rid of the fever, and headed out to the lovely ER.

Three hours, much blood work and many x-rays later, the declared him constipated. Thanks. We really appreciate that. His blood pressure was fine in the ER (well he was doped up on valium the whole time!) so they sent us home with advice to be patient and give the Miralax some more time.

At about 3 pm on Sunday our patience ran out and we dealt with the constipation more...ahem... aggressively. Dovi did not really approve of our choices. "Abba, why you do dat to me?" was one of his little gems.

But it worked and hopefully we're back to normal.

Don't worry, tomorrow will be a fun post :)

Haha! I mean, poor Dovi. But that quote is just too cute.

He's so cute! What a sport. Don't you love the ER for diagnosing him with constipation?

Awwwwwwwww. I would want to know why someone would do "THAT" to me too. (I can only guess what "THAT" was) I am happy he is recovering. Here is to good health.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!! I had a good laugh at your comment about the ceiling fan....that is EXACTLY what happened at my house too. Me: Chandelier; Hubs: Fan!! For a while there I was looking at Fan-deliers (yes, there is such a thing) but they were just too weird for me. The one we bought was the happy compromise! Oh the joys of marriage!!
