...and yet another trip to the ER!

...this time it was Ben! He was outside playing with his cousin...thank goodness he was with him and not by himself...because he needed to have someone with him this time...Jakob ran inside to tell us Ben was hurt...when we got out there Ben was on the ground...Stuart got Ben to his feet and let him go and Ben fell over...he had no balance. We got him inside - checked him out...it wasn't much longer before he started throwing up...and then we decided we better get him to the hospital...once we got to the ER...he continued to throw up and he got a CT scan and the doctor came out and talked to us a bit and said that Ben had all the signs of inter cranial bleeding...Ben got 3 doses of Meds for the vomiting and an injection and the vomiting just wouldn't stop...he started talking to us about Ben and the possibility of having Ben being transported to Children's Hospital in either Spokane (yes, that's were we just moved from....) or Seattle both HOURS from here...at about 1 am the doctor talked to a nuerologist and since Ben's CT scan looked good...they were thinking that since he kept getting sick there might be a slow bleed that the CT scan didn't pick up but they decided to finally just let us go home anyway so at 2am this morning we were allowed to come home and asked to come back to the hospital at 7am if he continued to throw up - he threw up once in the car on the way home...the doctor told me to wake him up every 2 hours...so at 4 I tried to wake him up - he wouldn't budge...and tried again at 7 - I got him up - he felt very sick, but didn't get sick so that was good :) We never have a dull moment around the Dezember Household!

OMGosh . . . Renee', I was so worried (all night) about Ben. I think I was feeling your pains and possibly his. I'm glad he's home now and hopefully on his way to recovery. Poor guy . . .

We all were very worried last night, I'm glad he's doing much better and no trip out of town.
What's going to happen next?
