The Curve Balls in Life

Isn't it always interesting when you are thrown a curve ball?

Yesterday my older daughter's school called me at work...she had a terrible headache. I talked to her and she complained it was the worst she had ever had, and she couldn't stay at school. Since I was teaching, I couldn't go get her. Luckily my Dad was able to pick her up.

He took her to the doctor and I met them there...they gave her some Tylenol and that didn't help AT ALL! They then sent us the the ER. We went to the hospital while my Dad picked up Katie and helped her sell Girl Scout Cookies with her troop. {My dad is such a trooper!}

At the ER, they gave Kirstin a CAT Scan....we were there a total of five hours (and two at the doctor's office!) The ER doctor said the CAT Scan was normal...meanwhile, Kirstin couldn't lay down or sit was too painful!

They gave her Motrin in the ER....and that did nothing for the pain. :(

So, in the end...she received Vicadin (sp?). That still didn't do much, but they sent us home, anyway. She fell asleep around 11:45pm and woke up this morning around 9:30. She still has a headache, but it isn't as bad as yesterday.

The Motrin isn't working today, either, but she is too nervous about taking more of the Vicadin.

Luckily it's the weekend and she can rest.

Poor thing! I hate it when I can't make my little ones feel better.
