we were not in a huge rush to get out of town, but didn’t want to dilly dally either. I got up at 6 and went for a quick run before getting ready to leave.
the rest of the trip was mostly uneventful, until we got to washington. we stopped in rochester for some dessert with our friends and shane had a terrible stomachache. it got worse, and we stopped at a truck stop to get some tums and let him chill a little. he was doubled over in pain and nothing helped, so we were considering taking him to the ER. we found a hospital in olympia and got as far as the parking lot when I suggested that we push through the remaining two hours til we got home. he agreed, and we made it home just before midnight. his stomach hurt badly again, but he was able to lay down and get to sleep. it took me awhile to go to sleep though, since I was afraid he might have appendicitis.
but he was fine by morning. thank goodness!
