I want my mommy..

This Monday, when I drove you to school, you looked kinda pale. You said your tummy hurt. It was that time of the month and I remember my periods as not being pleasant. So I felt for you and I gave you some pain relief to take along. Every night, when you called me, you told me your tummy was not feeling any better and you had painful cramps.

On Wednesday, around recess, you called me on the phone and I could hear the tears in your voice. You wanted me to pick you up. Your teacher said it might be better just to stay in boarding school and relax in the afternoon. They gave you other pain medication but you said it didn't do anything for you. You cried and I contacted the principal of your boarding school. Talking to her, I let her know that your appendix has been swollen for a number of years, causing you pain every now and then. It's not something we worry about all the time, but I did want to make sure everything was okay. I didn't want your appendix to burst while in school. So around teatime, I picked you up and drove you home. We pampered you and laid you down on the couch, hot cocoa and a blanket within reach. Your sister went to the pharmacy to get you some more effective pain relief. Hopefully it will help you relax. xx

Zouden jullie die appendix er niet uitnemen, dan is dat toch al achter de rug.

ik vind dat ook geen slecht idee, maar de dokter wacht liever nog even af.
