My Tummy Hurts…
One of the main reasons I am writing this is to potentially help save a childs life. Here is my story!
A few weeks ago my daughter complained of a stomach ache. Being the typical mom, I dismissed it as something she ate or needed to have a bowel movement. The next morning she said, “Mom my stomach still hurts.” I got her dressed, fed her crackers, and sent her off to school. Since I work at the school I told the teacher if her stomach continues to hurt allow her to put her head down and I would pick her up immediately following school. She rested all day in class completing some work but nothing major happened. I check with the teacher who stated she seemed fine by the end of the day. I checked with my daughter who stated she felt better, therefore I decided to stay at work and send her to extended care to play for a while.
