This past week ended on a rough note. After my modem went belly up I thought nothing else would go wrong. Thursday morning I went to my classes like I always do. Right after the 10am break my phone rang. It was the grade school telling me that they couldnt keep my kindergartener awak, he had the shakes, and was complaining of a headache. So I bailed on my classes and drove like I was in the Daytona 500 to get to him. I was over an hour away so it still took soe time to get there. When I got there I ran through the school to get him fro his teacher. He was pale white and seemed confused. I took him to the doctors office 2 blocks away to see if they could get him in. The nurse went to talk to the doctor. She (the doc) came out and said to get hi to the ER right away. The ER stoff, most of who I know, where very good with my son. Then the doctor said lumbar puncture aka spinal tap. I panicked and called my ex at work. By the time he got there our son was really confused and didnt know where he was. When they did the spinal tap they threw us out of the ER. We stood there for 10 minutes until we could get back in. Our son was in tears begging for no more shots. They had stuck him twice for his IV and twice for the spinal tap. The doc decided to admit him, though it took until 6pm to get him to his room. He slpet all night, waking periodically to scream in pain. We made it through the night with no other problems. He did get released around 4pm friday. Now We have to play the waiting gae till his doctors appointment to get all his test results back from the spinal tap and the CT scan. I am hoping and praying that they are all negative. The ER doc seems to think that he had an allergic reaction to his ADHD meds. I dont think he did, cause he spiked a fever on the way to the hospital. We we will find out the results in the orning, so please keep you fingers crossed that they dont show anything.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
