After 6 months of ER avoidance, we made an unexpected trip there this morning.  Abby spiked a 103+ temp early this morning.

She woke up a little before 6 am.  As soon as I saw her I knew she was Sick.  Within minutes she quickly went into a status (prolonged) seizure.  After some very fast Tylenol and Diastat we loaded up and headed to the hospital.

The seizure stopped while en-route,  but she was struggling to breathe.  A nurse met us at the door and quickly got her hooked up to monitors etc.  They did all the usual blood draw for labs, IV fluids, O2, chest x-ray, head CT and more.  She needed oxygen for about 2+ hours and got a breathing treatment which helped.

All of her tests came back ok.  Her WBC were a little elevated so she got a dose of Rocephin.

Once she held her O2 sats ok on her own without O2 we got to take her home.  She has been very lethargic and sleepy all day.  Her fever is better controlled with meds and hopefully we can just ride this virus out over the next few days.

Josiah has been a little sick too.

This will be a week of more down time now that we can cancel our many appointments.  Not such a bad thing every now and then.
