Beautiful full moon tonight....

..glowing bright in the night sky

`

shining through the kitchen window...

`



...creating hazy-soft moon shadows.

`

`

Not much sleep happening here lately... the moon will be good company tonight.

`

`

M is sick again... The situation is reminding me (too much!) of the road we traveled down almost a year ago. His gut seems to have shut down again, and if his GI system doesn't start working by tomorrow I will have to take him in... probably to the ER where they can quickly do the needed diagnostic tests and treatment.

The last time this happened (last March) the situation quickly became life threatening. I'm hoping this time I caught things quickly enough, and gave him enough of the right medications to get things moving again and we are able to avoid that crisis point.

`

`

He started getting sick last night, and never got much better today.  I was hoping after the rough day, he'd be tired enough to sleep tonight. But he's just sitting up in bed, hoping the stomach pain will go away...

No.. probably not much sleep tonight... hopefully things will be better by morning.

`

Edited to add: M had a rough night but was better when he got up this morning, and his gut is showing some minimal signs that it's starting to work again. We are keeping the medication and diet changes I started when he started getting sick again and hoping that the issue resolves itself. Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers...
