Thinking About Nick


My Mom called me today at work to tell me that little Nick is in the hospital. :(. My Mom was exhausted. My sister has been staying with her this week, and she stayed up with him a lot at night so my sister could get some sleep. Nick has not been happy with the world since he entered it on February 29, and has cried a LOT. Anyway, sorry about *too much info* here, but apparently, Nick has not, since Monday night, gone *number two*. My Mom was starting to get worried about that, so on Thursday night, they called the doctor, who told them to come in to the hospital on Friday morning so they could check him out. They decided that something is going on with him, which could be anything as minor as his little body not agree with food yet, all the way to he may need surgery for some kind of intestinal issue. They were doing some tests and xrays on him when my Mom called me. Of course, when my Mom was telling me about this, she started crying (which is very unlike her), so I started crying, and then she was saying she was sorry for crying, but she is SO exhausted that anything makes her cry.......I guess if he has surgery, they would have to drive him to Grand Rapids because Traverse's hospital does not do infant surgery. I am wondering if it's something with formula (they have been using both breast milk and formula, long story on that) because when my sister was a baby, she was allergic to some formulas and had issues too, so maybe this is like genetic? I hope it's something minor like that. Anyway, they were going to keep him overnight. I called my Mom on the way home from work, and she was heading home too and was going to call me when she knew something. So, I will keep everyone posted. I am thinking positive, but I would still appreciate everyone's prayers for little Nick, and to please think about my sister and her husband and my poor stressed out Mom. Thanks in advance.....

I have been worried sick. My stomach is really bothering me because I don't know anything, and hearing my Mom cry is horrible........

Anyway, that's about it for now, I will update when I hear something.
