not my time
ok... nooooo, I haven't been to the dr yet. Well, that's not true. I did get my 12 week check up for the cervical cancer.....and I only have to go once a year now!!! WOOHOOOO!!!! clean bill of health there!!! No cancer cells, pre or otherwise. :) But as for my stomach...nope. haven't gone. My kid comes first. And he's been having horrible headaches. I had him in the ER on Tuesday night....he had a BAD headache all day long...no amount of medicine helped it..and it got progressively worse, resulting in him throwing up. I thought migraines. so I take him to the ER at 10pm. First mistake! We were there for about an hour before they even called him back to take his blood pressure or ask why the heck he was there. then they stuck us in a room where we sat for 2 hours before another living soul came in the room. They came in...took some blood...started an iv for some pain meds...then disappeared for another 2-3 hours. Came back in and things started rolling. The "bands" in his white blood cell count was elevated...should be around 0-3%...his was at 20%. They suspect bacterial meningitis. Want to do a spinal tap. Start him on 2 VERY powerful antibiotics. We get the spinal tap done...he handled it like a champ. They also tested for strep, mono, and the flu. 2 hours later, everything comes back NEGATIVE. Thank you baby jesus!! We finally get home at 7:30am. He is still having headaches and throwing up....took him to the dr today. He said Migraines. gonna start him on some meds to see if they help. re-evaluate him in a week. I can't help but think this is from his dirtbike accident 3 years ago, and we have progressed to this. :( so I'm on hold for right now till I get him together. But I WILL go to the dr. PROMISE.
