My Day in the ER

This is just a very tiny post to tell you that I've had a crappy day...
I'm feeling so exhausted and my head is killing me!...
After lunch, Wilson's teacher called me to school once Wilson was feeling sick...
He had a huge pain in his chest, is vision was kinda blurry and he was so pale that she thought that he would faint...
As we were walking home, Wilson started to complaint about a pain in his shoulder/arm....Ok at this point I REALLY started to worry about the whole situation and took him straight to the ER!...
After 5 long hours, we got back with a whole bunch of exams in our hands.
Thanks God it was nothing!
Now I must to schedule an app. with a children Cardiologist to make sure it was REALLY nothing...
My head is about to explode....
You have no idea of the amount of sick children (mostly newborns) that were there!....I can still hear them crying!......

Sandra, minha filha já devias estar acostumada,em portugal quando vamos a um serviço de urgência temos de ir logo preparadas para ficarmos lá horas infinitas e com muita sorte talvez sejas atendida no mesmo dia,pois se houver muita gente corres o risco de só te chamarem quando já não for necessário!!!.... Ou morreste !!!.... Ou na melhor das hipóteses mudás-te de opinião e foste a um serviço particular!!!...Isto chamasse" Saúde" à maneira " PORTUGUESA "!!!....Espero mesmo assim, que esteja tudo bem com o meu menino...Não há-de ser nada se Deus quiser!...Um beijinho muito grande da avó e as melhoras...

Oh my! what a false alarm!? Were you in tears on the way there? I would! or rather I did! when I sent my kid in after he vomitted blood at home!

I'm glad they didn't see anything at the ER, but you're right it's a good idea to get him straight to the cardiologist. I had some similar problems with Amber (my oldest) and she was finally cleared by her cardiologist to come back yearly. Try not to worry and get some rest.

I'm sorry this happened, but it seems like we're dealing with some of the same things. Amber was in the hospital yesterday morning. Quite a scare for me too 'cause she was crying in pain and she never cries!

Keep us posted and I hope your head is feeling better.
