Second ER visit

It has happened. The dreaded flu got a hold of lil Davy(or so i thought.) 2am Friday morning Davy started to throw up....like cuh- razy throw up. Like body convulsing every 30 minutes kind of throw up. She had her last adrenal medication at 12am, so her endocrine Doc had us wait it out til her next dosage which is at 8am. Which she quickly threw up, so it was go time. We drove down to Choc ER. Her Doc called triage so we could get in pronto. She said if we had to wait more then 15 minutes then we needed to give her her emergency shot in the waiting room. Now, I know I give Davy a daily shot, but not like this one. The needle is the size of a small twig, so I really did not want to do it. Luckily we walked right in. They took blood, gave her fluids and miraculously got an IV in 2 tries! I could have kissed that Er nurse and her magic hands.
The Er Doc comes in and tells us it looked like she had a Urinary tract infection(UTI) and that she would need to be in the hospital for 4 to 8 hours. So i said OK, 4 to 8, not bad. No Miss, 48 hours. I actually laughed...oh wow, 48 hours, I did not prepare for that. So we are back in the Hospital and what was supposed to be 48 hours is going to be longer. She has some infections going on and they need to play it safe. She is pretty lethargic and is sleeping a lot. But her vitals are great and she is keeping her food down.
Please say some prayers for our Davy.

This happened to our Aris last Christmas. Her Uti turned into pyelonephritis. Her fever hit 106.1 & her ER visit landed her in the hospital for 6 days. It was so scary. Hope little Davy recovers soon. Sending prayers your way!

Hey, Ruth...
I just put Lola down and was praying/begging that she would sleep through the night. She had her first bout of illness this week (which is most likely a side effect of teething-I think) and she was up screaming for hours last night. We ended up in the car circling our neighborhood for quite some time to finally calm her down. In 8.5 months that was my first sleepless night.

Anyway, I was just sitting here dreading a repeat of last night and then I read this. And while I'm super bummed Davy's not doing it so great right now, I'm grateful for the perspective this gives me -right when I needed it. Hang in there and Davy (and you) will be in our prayers.

Kids look so down when hospitalized. Hope she's better soon and back home soon!

Rochelleht said...

Bless your heart. I will totally be praying for both of you. Having just done a stint in the hospital ourselves, I am full of empathy. No fun!

I will be praying for sweet little Davy. She must be so miserable. I love her hair......my grandsons did that for a couple of months. I was sad when it started laying down, hah.
Feel better Baby Girl.

Her picutres are so cute but she looks so sad.

This has only been her 2nd visit in the 7 months that she has been home from the NICU. I was really prepared for this happening more often. I think you have done an amazing job of keeping her healthy this far.

Hang in there...2011 you will survive. : )
