My kid is a spaz... or pai in the neck--- or insert your- it's almost funny because it's over - title here-

Acute Torticollis
The pic is from a much happier day for my middle son- Matt. NOT today.
Today- the word of the day isn't happy- but "Acute Torticollis" That- and "muscle relaxant" and "pain killer"....
It was 6:10 a.m. when he started screaming. FYI- I need coffee before people shold ever start screaming. I hadn't had any yet.
Poor kid- he laid down on the couch this morning- waiting to leave for the bus--- then felt something "pop" in his neck- and a scream flew out of his mouth. Couldn't turn his head, couldn't sit back- stood up- wouldn't move. Then, tears slid out from the corners of his eyes. He tried hard not to scream. 14 year olds don't like to show pain.
After a few minutes- he started feeling lightheaded- and got a terrible headache.
His Dad was home- so we got him to the car and to the ER....
A Muscle Spasm. "Very common in kids, we're not sure why..." "Vicodin and and ice" In all the years I've been a mom- I thought we'd seen it all--- the strange rashes... the infections, the vomit- the stitches...
This was a new one.
I'll add it to the list. But, for now- scroll down for Noah cuteness pics--- I'm so thankful for insurance and prescription coverage.
