That is my silly son under the sweater and Santa hat. He has been ill for about four weeks and my worst fears were relieved this morning at the pediatric G.I. Specialist at Strong Hospital. We are so fortunate to have this amazing hospital and its staff right down the street. The poor kid has been in a lot of pain and vomiting a couple of times a day for well over a month. We were assured that he shows classic symptoms of a bacterial stomach infection, that is most likely a complication from the flu he had in October. He is taking a specialized stomach anti-biotic and hopefully by the new year he will be right as rain. Let us all count our blessings and help those who have less, bring love to the world and rejoice.
