Last night Shelby had tummy pain and it was bad enough that she didn't eat supper, made it hard for her to fall asleep and woke her at 5 a.m. I called right away at 8 a.m. to get her in to see her GI. He saw her at 3 p.m. and by then she had a low-grade fever of 100. He ordered labs and an abdominal x-ray. By the time we got home her temp was up to 101.5. We called our GI again and he said to give it an hour. Her temp was still up then. He wanted her to be able to go to immediate care and get an antibiotic shot, but she's allergic to too many meds for that. So...she's been admitted to Rockford Memorial for IV antibiotics. She's feeling rough and looking a little jaundiced. I'll update again tomorrow.
