Hi, my 4 year old son has been complaining of sever stomach pain, soon after he vomits. It seems as if the pain is so strong he cant sit still. He Points to his belly button and gets in a fetal position saying his stomach hurts. He has lost his appetite and wants to do nothing but sleep. I have taken him to the ER because of this once before. He had an ultrasound, cat scan, blood drawn, and an IV started. One test showed "dilated tube blockage to the left kidney." The PA that helped us in the ER said she didn't think the pain was because of an issue with his kidney because he said the pain was by his belly button and the kidneys are elsewhere. What could this be?

My 7 year old son is a bed wetter. At what age should he grow out of this? Also is it possible his bladder may not be fully grown yet? I've tried goodnights and overnights but he just wets right through them, so instead I've been putting him in depends to sleep at night, my mother believes I should have him sleeping in underwear because supposedly depends pull the moisture away from his skin and she thinks that's the reason he's wetting the bed. Is there anything wrong with putting my son in depends at bedtime?
