Wednesday night we were getting in bed and Jesse said that he was dizzy all of the sudden. So we got up and thought maybe if he walked around a little that he would feel better. Well, it didn't help, his eyes were moving like if you look at someones eyes after they were spinning around in circles. I got online and started looking up what could be wrong with him. Then he started throwing up. He was white as a ghost and sweating like I have never seen before. I called my parents and they came and took us to the hospital. My sister stayed at our house with Lyla. By the time we got to see the Doctor Jesse had already thrown up about 7 times. The doctor checked his ears and eyes, asked a few questions, then left. The nurse came in to give him an IV and give him something else to stop the puking(but nothing for the dizzyness for some reason). Jesse fell asleep really quick and slept for about an hour or so. The doctor came back in and described what was wrong with him. He said that there are little hairs far in your ear that have little crystal like rocks on the tips of them and those are what tells your brain that you are turning your head. Well sometimes one of those little rocks swells up or falls off the hair and just keeps rolling around in your ear. The only way to make it stop is to wait for the crystal to dissolve in your ear. It can take 2 days to 2 weeks or even more for some people. It is called Vertigo. Jesse has the kind that he is constantly dizzy with no breaks. So he can't walk or stand and he obviously can't drive. I am very glad that my family lives so close and they were able to help us out. Jesse isn't throwing up anymore but still dizzy. He has to lay in bed or on the couch all day and most of the time with his eyes closed. If you all can keep him in your prayers we would appreciate it.
