It was nice to be home for 5 1/2 hours

10:00 p.m.
The tylenol is not helping. The last temp was 104.6. Something has got to start bringing this fever down! We have cold wash cloths on her now. She is so thirsty, too. This is scary.

9:42 p.m.
Mom, you won't believe this, but that bouncy kid you were Skyping a little while ago has now spiked a temp up to 104.5. She is really uncomfortable, shivering & her heart is racing. She has me worried. She has tylenol on board now; let's just pray that it works SOON. She sleeps for about 10 minutes, but moans & tosses & turns then wakes up. She is miserable. What is causing this?!?!?!? She is on IV Nafcillin for her blisters & eye.

2:10 p.m.
She's being admitted. Labs came back "strange" again. So, for her that means that her white blood cell count is high (normal for the rest of us). There's no one specific thing that's out-of-whack; just the whole situation is weird. Her fever is still hanging out in the high 103 range. She's attempting to nap now while we wait to be moved upstairs. I should, too. I think I'm beyond exhausted now and sleep will be hard to come by :-(

12:40 p.m.

Flu swab negative, IV in, labs drawn, chest x-ray taken, swab for shingles taken, temp still 103. We wait for results. This ER is BUSY BUSY today. Tons of ambulances have come in while we've been here. It will be a long day. It was even before it started. I did manage to get a smile from her, though.Oh no! She grew elf ears! :~)

9:40 a.m.
Back in the ER. She woke around 7:30 burning up w/a temp of 104.6. She is miserable and looks miserable. That's all I know for now. Pray please.
