I just mentioned to someone that Asa hasn't had any gushers in a while. Don't get me wrong, he gets sick nearly everyday but there is usually warning. There is a pattern and a set of signs of what is to come. We can prepare ourselves. We can plug in a farrell bag and usually avoid a huge mess. Usually!
A gusher is different. Without any kind of warning Asa suddenly throws up. No rhyme or reason. You can imagine this is much worse than those daily pukes. We usually don't have enough time to get a bag. We might have enough time to get a cup. But now he thrashes around so much that he almost never hits the cup!
Asa has been doing so good and I just mentioned to some that he hadn't gotten so sick in a while. We were at the ball field tonight for practices (yep, plural, both Gracie and Cade had practice). It was nice out but windy and Asa doesn't do wind so for the first practice he stayed out in the van with Barry. We opened the back and folded the seats down so he could scoot around! I love a mini-van, it should be called a mini-home! We even set it up so Cade and Gracie could change in the car in privacy. And as long as only 5 of us ride, I can put Asa's chair in while it is still folded! Much easier on the back.
Anywho! For Cade's practice I thought I'd take him up to the field. It didn't seem too windy and wasn't crowded. Asa really liked it. He was tired and got a little crabby but not bad at all. The wind didn't bother him in the least! YAY!!!
Then on the way home, out of nowhere, BLAAAH! It wasn't pretty and he continued the whole way home! :( Poor guy! I hope it is one of those random things and not that he is getting sick. We've been so blessed this winter and spring to have very few issues!
Please continue to keep Cooper in your prayers. They are hoping and praying that tomorrow is the next step in the whole transplant process. When they transplanted the colon and small intestines they couldn't get him closed back up. They are hopeful he will be ready for surgery tomorrow to close him back up. I doubt any of us can imagine seeing your child sedated, in the ICU, with his new organs exposed (with dressings). Please lift this family up in prayer as this journey is just now beginning.
