Right now I'm in the RMH ER with Shelby. She woke up this morning with tummy pain and a temp of 102. So we wait...please say some prayers for her. I'll update when I know more.
Please pray for Emerson. Things were going so well for her and have taken a bad, bad turn. Shelby has given a urine sample and has her EMLA placed for her IV. Once they get that in labs will be done. She is feeling rotten.
IV is in and she is getting fluids. Now we wait for lab results.
Shelby is being admitted. Her fever is still at 102 and her liver numbers are quite elevated. She is on Zosyn (IV antibiotic) and feels worse than when we got here.
She's in her room all tucked under blankets as she's been shivering. Her temp is still hanging out around 101-102 despite the tylenol. She's having some diarrhea and is thirsty and hungry. She's been having ice chips and Daddy is bringing some brown rice from home for her to eat. She just keeps looking worse and worse. I have a feeling we (Scott and me) will both be spending the night with her. Avery and Riley are at Grammie's. Please say a prayer for peace for Riley as she gets so worried when her little sister gets sick. Thank you.
A dose of Motrin was given to her and, wow, what a change we've seen. She's eaten some rice, a popsicle and some jello. She was telling knock-knock jokes to the hospitalist and being very charming. Her temp is now in the 99 range. Her tummy still hurts and they are culturing her stools for all sorts of fun stuff. They'll draw LFT's (liver function tests) in the morning and we'll go from there. Thank you for the prayers. Unless she gets worse, this will be my last update for the evening.
