Ezekiel is full of S@#%

Our son Zeke has been sick for almost three days with a mild sore throat, unrelenting fever, and moderate to severe abdominal pain. We thought he had the standard stomach flu that people get and were treating him with over the counter drugs. The confusing thing was the stomach pain because it kept moving from right where the appendix is to up by his ribs on the opposite side. Yesterday we finally gave up and took him in to the ER where they did blood work and really didn't find anything definitive. They suggested we stop with the Tylenol and come back if and when it got worse (to see if we were masking symptoms). Several hours later we were back where in they did an X-ray of his abdomen and got back some results from earlier. Zeke had two things going on, hence the confusion. First he was positive for strep explaining the sore throat and fever, and, well see the X-ray for yourself.
Lisa turned to me and we mouthed at the same time - "Zeke is full of...". Well you get it. Most of the time it's just an expression, but not with Zeke - he really is and will be for about two days as it works its way out.

Blessing #1 - Zeke is capable of giving himself a suppository.

Oh, your poor son! I can't even imagine the pain he must be in. I hope it 'passes' quickly!

He was back at school today. SO it is true when they say "This number two will pass."
