Spring Training Fiasco

So last night we started out with the entire family (minus Cory, Katie, and Jason) by going to a Spring Training Game- Giants vs Cubs. We were super excited and having a blast. It was pretty windy and they actually ended up calling the game early because of the wind. Too bad Rich and I weren't there for that part...Minutes after this above picture was taken with Zach and Rich- we had a little abdominal pain issues arise. We are thinking it is a stomach ulcer- but we are not sure- and the ER doctor is not sure- and basically ER doctors don't really care about solutions- just about making the pain go away.Which is nice- because pain is not fun. After a GI cocktail (numbing meds for the stomach), two doses of morphine, labs, x-rays, phenergan, and demerol, we finally have a sleeping Rich (as shown above). The pain came back after we were discharged home and the medicine wore off- but after 6 more hours of being patient the pain finally subsided.
.
We are going to a real GI doctor on Tuesday. Hopefully we'll get some answers and solutions soon.

Wouldn't he have looked better in a laborlooks hospital gown?On a better note- Isn't Cousin Ethan cute? Nugs and him have been having a blast playing together!

Poor Rich!! We hope that he feels better soon. (and that the doctors figure the problem quickly!) The rest of you look like you are having a great lil' family reunion!! Wish we could be there too!

It was a great week but Rich needs to think of a more original way to get out of the cold Arizona wind!!
