That nasty virus is gone.
My son's chest is represented by the following image:
After a visit with the pediatric cardiologist, he was given an all clear. The doctor believes it to be a chest muscle spasm. It was still very scary and perplexing to see his chest moving in such a prominent, rhythmic manner. I'm still wary about his situation, as my son is not very verbal and cannot explain beyond saying "hurt"
His pacemaker will need to be replaced in about 18 months and require an overnight stay at the hospital. so at least I'm prepared for that.
Did I mention that we went to the doctor's office during yet another snowstorm. This one only brought 5 inches. We only got stuck once.
By the time we got home I was emotionally drained and all I wanted to do was sleep.
What I found interesting was my lack of interest in eating and the role my emotions play in regulating my hunger.
What I have learned is to make meal plans and eat properly to sustain myself though trying times. It is much better to have good food to grab, rather than junk food.
Now to get back to "normal".
