I had to pick Schatz up from school this morning. She's been fighting a bug for about 10 days now. When I got to the school, she was curled up in the chair in the front office. (There was another sick kid on the nurse's bed.)
Me (touching her forehead): How are you feeling?
Schatz: I feel yucky...like someone is stabbing my heart.
Me: Really? You feel like someone is STABBING your heart? Is it a sharp pain or a dull pain.
Schatz: It really hurts.
Me: You feel hot. Stabbing pain? If you are having chest pains we need to go to the emergency room. That's a symptom of a heart attack. That's pretty serious.
Schatz: Well. It hurts, but maybe it's not in my heart. It's more like my belly. I think I have appendicitis.
Me: Appendicitis?!? That's not good. Do you feel yucky like you did yesterday?
Schatz: Yes, like yesterday.
Me: Okay. I'll take you home for a rest and give you a little Tylenol. If you are still hurting in about an hour we'll call the clinic.
