Sunday Rambling

First of all I will be back in NJ later today and no computer again for a week- miss me! teehee. Just can't keep off that I95!

Twin #1 had us really concerned the other day! She had quite a bald spot right on the top of her head. She insisted she nor one of the other kiddos had cut it. It looked like there weren't even any follicles. What could cause that to happen in an 8 yr old? nerves, metabolic problem? I was sure she had caused it somehow just by her reaction when questioned about it, plus I had cut her bangs just before vaca, and hadn't noticed any falling hair. I would have noticed that much of a bald spot! Finally we got her alone and explained we had to know what had happened, if it was something medical we would have to have it taken care. She very shyly said, I got gum caught in it and couldn't get it out so I pulled it out! Wow that must have hurt- down to the follicles! and sooo much. We told her if it happens ever again and hopefully not tell us. Mom has stuff that will take it out. She seemed sooo relieved! I think she thought she was gonna be banned from gum or be punished is why she didn't tell. We looked at each other and smiled-KIDS!

Twin #2 had us going yesterday, She was vomiting for 24 hours. She also had a tummy ache- no specific area. We hemmed and hawed. We discussed it, both being nurses. Decided she was constipated-one little enema, and she felt somewhat better, but continued to vomit- called the doc- went to the ER. They didn't do much-urine test & xray- 3 hours later we were sent home. Just an intestinal virus, her bowel is full of air- your should expect diarrhea tomorrow! O goody!
She got up this am and is just fine-guess mommy & granny were right- constipation.

Well gotta go-see ya in a week!
