Poor boy!

Riley has been complaining if a stomach ache for about 2 weeks and I did not think much of it. I really thought he was just trying to get out of eating dinner. Well, last night He woke up at about 1:00 a.m. crying that his stomach hurt. I asked if he felt like he was going to be sick or needed to use the bathroom and he said no, so I gave him some tylenol and put the heating pad on his little belly and he fell asleep. He woke up today and said he felt better and wanted to go to school so I took him and made an appointment for this afternoon. We ended up going in earlier as I got a phone call from the school nurse, who is so nice, saying Riley was in her office complaining of a tummy ache. I picked him up and we went right to the Doctors. After a long wait and some x-rays the Doctor came to the conclusion that he has gastritis or an ulcer. They are both treated the same way so she sent us home with some zantax and told us to come back in 2 days to see if he is any better.

I feel so bad that I did not take him seriously! Riley is not sick very often so I should have known and not waited until he was up in the middle of the night crying! What a "bad mom" as Lorenzo would say!

Well, this has been a week of Doctor's appointments. Lorenzo had one yesterday and they have made yet another Med change, We hope this works better then the last. Liam had his developmental assessment and has another one on Thursday. And I have been on the phone a ton trying to find a therapist for Lorenzo. I hope December lets up a little!!!!

Riley had his first ever Archery Tournament yesterday. I am sorry I do not have any pictures but I forgot my camera, I wish I'd had it as it was so much fun to see him with the huge bow! A friend of mine took some pictures of Riley so if she emails them to me I will post them later.

Riley has been taking archery classes for the last 3 month and this tournament was with about 6 other groups on our side of the island. Riley was in category D (9 and under) and he scored 72 points yesterday which was about 8 point shy from getting a medal. He was very excited and it was fun to watch all of the kids. I have never been to anything like it and It was amazing to see how good some of the kids were! Liam was a little crazy and was driving everyone nuts including the coaches and other kids. I think I need to get him a leash! But other then that it was a so much fun.

Thanks to everyone for their congrats and phone calls. I have to tell Jonathan and Cindy it was nicest way to wake up and I was glad for their early morning call! The only thing is it was a little bitter sweet as we wish it was Jeremy and David but we know it will happen soon. Jeremy found out he scored a 70 and that he was the cut off so we feel very blessed!

Halloween + update

Well, where to start? I guess I will back track to last Sat. We had our Church fall festival and it was a lot of fun. They had a great turn out and it was fun to see all the kids there. liam refused to wear his costume that night but oh well. The boys had a lot of fun and for the first time ever Lorenzo went with Riley by himself to participate in the games and activities so i think it was a big success!

Halloween was a wet and muddy affair here. it rained all day and off and on while we were out trick-or-treating. liam decided to put on his super suit but he and lorenzo only lasted about 1 block. we came back home and Jeremy took Riley out to do a little more. I was thinking about some years in RI and the kids were all bundled up and how cold it was, not out here. In between rain showers we were fighting off mosquitoes.

Other news: Jeremy found out yesterday that he will be going on the 4-5 month (it has gone down to possibly 4 months) tour. We are not to excited about this but hey, what do you do. I went to a breakfast get-together at a friends house yesterday and all of their husbands were gone and some to Iraq and had been gone over a year. It puts things into perspective and makes me grateful for what we have. I worry about Lorenzo but I have faith the Lord will get us through it.
