My Son Is At The ER in Buffalo!

My son went to the ER in Buffalo yesterday because he felt really sick.  He was vomiting , had a bad headache, stiff neck, sore joints and I don’t know what else.  They wanted to give him a spinal tap and I think that made him nervous and he left.  He called me today and told me and I had him go right back to the ER.  They also wanted to do a Cat scan of his brain which means they suspect a possibility of meningitis.  It could be just a plain simple virus. I sure hope that’s all it is.

I am sitting here by the phone waiting.  I’m sure it will be hours before we know anything. I’ll keep you all posted.

    Joan! I’m sending good thoughts and prayers to you and Damon. It can be scary to be told what he was told. And, hard for you so far away. {{{good thoughts}}} {{{hugs from Arizona}}}
    Hope YOU are feeling better!

    Sending prayers your way. Hopefully your son is okay. I hope he lets the doctors do whatever tests they need to do to figure it all out.

    Hi Joan and Damon.

    Hope you get better real soon Damon. I wonder what it is. Hope all goes well for you back in Buffalo.
    Joan sometimes when we ‘ Get Better’ our physical bodies can take a few years to truly get the strenghts again hence loads of illnesses. Seem to pick up all the little viruses. Try not to worry to much. Prayers, love and hope for you Joan and strength and courage for you to dear Damon.

    Here’s for a brighter nicer Buffalo for Damon

    Oh dear! Joan, that is not good news. I am praying for Damon, and hope that all the tests come back clear and that he’s back to full health again soon.
    You get better too!

    Big ((hugs)))
