Shelby was admitted. They do not have her on any meds, but wanted to watch her overnight. Her fever is finally down to the 99-range and she has perked up quite a bit.
Riley is not feeling well, either, but they don't have the same symptoms! Scott met my parents in Elgin and did the Riley & Avery exchange. He is back here with us for the night in the hopes that she gets sprung in the morning.
Shelby is undergoing skin patch testing this week. Tuesday we went to Northwestern, she had the patches put on her back, went to Children's and saw her hepatologist & surgeon and had an abdominal ultrasound to check on her shunt. We got a good report that day. Her wbc & ANC still aren't good, but her spleen still felt smaller. Scott was not feeling well that day and went to Immediate Care and tested positive for strep.
Shelby tolerated the skin patches well and when they bothered her, Benadryl did the trick. All 5 of us came in yesterday, the skin patches were removed and we set out for some Chicago fun as you can see in the picture album.
Last night Shelby started complaining that her tummy hurt. She did not sleep well and around 6:30 a.m. I felt her and she was warm. Her temp was 100.8 - not bad, but with the only symptom being tummy pain we headed over to Children's ER (we stayed at the Kohl's House last night). Here her temp has spiked to 102 and she is NOT my Shelby. She is crying over everything. The exam, putting on Emla....NOT Shelby. She doesn't even want to play her DS! She is resting right now. Like I said, NOT Shelby. So far, her strep test came back negative and they are waiting to hear from her docs here on what tests to run. :-(
