This is worker #3.
He is my honor student,
He is my city-boy,
He is my thinker,
He is 14 years old.
He is not into physical labor.
He is not the outdoorsy type.
So... This past Monday,
when he came down with a fever,
I thought it was the flu that was going around.
Early Tuesday morning when he woke me up to tell me he felt like he was gonna throw up,
I rolled over and told him to throw up and go back to bed, and he did.
I knew it was the flu.
Wednesday, when he told he his stomach hurt,
I thought it was sore muscles from throwing up the day before.
I called him a weenie,
His temperature was down,
and I told him he needed to get up and move to loosen up his tight and sore muscles,
So I made him empty the dishwasher...
I giggled when he did it sitting in a chair.
Thursday, after he insisted on going to school to take an important test,
I picked him up early and he complained that his stomach pain was now more localized to the lower right-hand quadrant of his abdomen,
I began to think it may be his appendix.
2 hours later. when we got to the Dr's office he couldn't stand up straight.
3 hours later when we got to the ER, I thought he was gonna pass out.
6 hours later, when we were in the bumpy Ambulance going to Texas Children's Hospital, His temperature hit 104.2.
Friday morning, he was in the OR getting is ruptured appendix taken out,
They worked on him for over 2 hours to try to clean the massive infection out of his abdomen.
Ask him how much his Mommy sucks!
He'll be easy to find for the next 10 days....
He'll still be in the hospital!
