I mean, I must have arrived to be featured over at Serenity Now...right?

In other news...I spent 11 hours at 2 different ER's yesterday. That's right I got sent from one ER to the next.
Pixie has been having severe abdominal pain in her right lower quadrant. Yeah, that area of appendicitis fame. Between 3 hours at the first hospital, who determined that they were worried by her symptoms, even though her labs came back normal, (but they don't do pediatric surgery there) - and 8 hours at the next hospital they sent us to - well...it was a loooooong night.
After all that and IV's and tests, and CT scans - they determined that appendicitis was not the culprit. Which yes - a relief. What would have been MORE of a relief is if they could have told us what IS causing the pain.
So we still have no answers, but were assured that most of the things that are really serious were ruled out by the CT scan. That's good, but I still wish I could make my daughter feel better! Hoping that whatever it is passes soon.
Thankfully we have wonderful family support - after leaving Pixie and I at the first ER to go pick up the other kids from school, Hubby dropped them at my moms. Thank goodness for school uniforms! My mom had them all put on big long T-shirts and washed the clothes and underwear they were wearing, and they were able to get ready for school at her house this morning and Hubby just picked them up from there and took them to school. Wearing the same outfit they wore yesterday? Not a problem!
Hope everybody's having a good week - I'm off to go snuggle with my daughter.
