Poop is Serious Business

Joseph's stomach has hurt all week, he seems fine during the day while he's running around playing, but when he lays down it hurts.  He hasn't pooped in God-knows-how-long.  No one at school monitors it (and why would they! He's 4!!!).  I've been giving him laxatives for the last few days, but it appears it was a little too late for laxatives.  We needed something stronger.  And Joseph, Mom and Dad could REALLY use some sleep!  He's been up all night the last 2 nights.  We finally decided it was time for some professional assistance (to make sure I was treating the right condition).  So the Kerschen's took a trip to the ER.  The nurse gave Joseph his own vial of blood to keep.  From that moment on he was the best patient!  After the week we've endured, I will never take poop (or lack of poop) for granted again.
