Our Adventure This Week

Jade3

They admitted my daughter into the hospital on Monday.
Jade had been sick for 3 weeks. It started with a head cold, then moved into walking pneumonia. Since Walking Pneumonia is not contagious I sent her to school, at this point she wasn’t running a fever with being sick, but she was on breathing treatments, antibiotics and other medicine to get her well.
On Friday Morning, I got up (our usual routine), and was getting her clothes together for school, getting myself dressed. I ran out to crank the car so it would be warm and came back in to wake my sleeping my daughter. She woke up and came into the living room, her face was so red! I knew then that she was getting worse and not better. I could her temperature and it was 102.7
I called her Doctor and made an appointment, then took her to the kitchen to give her Ibuprofen and Tylenol to get her temp down. Needless to say she threw up half of the medicine, and the throwing up didn’t stop, but it wasn’t continuous it just happened every so often. This continued into Saturday, I finally called the Doctor on Saturday morning to get something to get her to quit being so nauseated. Her temp at this point was on clock work, every 5 hours and 30minutes it would start-up, reaching 102 within 30minutes. You couldn’t tell she was sick though, until the fever hit. She would grab her blanket and lay on the couch. The throwing up stopped with the help of Zofran, but the fevers never went away.
Monday, I took her back to the Dr. Of course at the Doctor she looked fine because I gave her Ibuprofen before we left, and if she didn’t have a fever you would have never know she was sick. She acted normal. However, the Doctor told me that she should be fine, and shouldn’t have a high fever, just a low-grade and she should be able to return to school the next day. We leave the doctor office, only to come home to a 103.5 fever. I called the doctor back and asked them to please do something to help her, I was tired of masking her fever, when apparently something is wrong.
They admitted her into the hospital on Monday evening.

Now it is Friday. She got out of the hospital on Wednesday evening, she would still get a fever, but they wasn’t as close together. Thursday she finally went 24 hours without a fever! While at the hospital her WBC was 15 on Monday and when we left it was 11.6. Her liver enzymes are still elevated (they have come down since Monday), but we will go back on Thursday to get them rechecked.
I will probably never know what happened to her, but I am glad to be home, and say that she is FEVER FREE!

Her class made her a Valentine Get Well Soon Card and got her a Bear! So Thoughtful.

Being at the hospital while you are 8 months pregnant.. let’s just say that my hips thank me for being home!
They ruled it as Viral plus her having Pneumonia even though her chest X-ray came back negative, they still thought maybe her body was still fighting it off.

Five Question Friday

Ahhhh!! I have been slacking! Sorry my fellow friends and readers. We had some bad lightning the other night and we needed up with no power, and blah blah blah, but I will tell ya about it on Todays truth 🙂 So, Here we go.. 5QF!

1. If you knew your best friend’s spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
I believe in Karma, and I don’t want to be the one breaking bad news to my friend. It is kinda like, yeah I dunno. Since my (ex) step-dad cheated on my mom and I was the one to tell my mom. I have become a let Karma do her thing, kinda person. I now feel as though if I tell my best friend about something, that the person I’m telling on might have lies good enough to not back my story, so I will just step back and watch what happens. I know, true friends tell and talk, but I already been on that fence and it tore me apart.

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
Can!!! Something about being in a can makes it feel colder, and the taste is different 😉

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?
I wash my hair first, haha! Am I weird? oh, then I double rinse it before I get out.

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Sleep while you can, and if you are doing formula.. get the containers that you can have the formula already in that way you can just dump it into the bottle than shake, shake it! lol!! 🙂 and enjoy the moments while you can because the grow up so fast… or the time passes by so fast, either one.

5. What is your best hangover remedy?
Pop 2 Tylenol in the morning, and go get something to eat, with a water 🙂
