Sick Update

It's been quite a day! Rylie stayed in bed all morning, not wanting to do anything. I took her temp at noon & it was 102.7! Her doctor's appointment was at 2pm so we hung out until then.



When we finally got there, her temp was 104.2!! Poor Rylie wouldn't move or speak. Just sat there snuggled against me. They tested her for flu & strep first-both negative. Then they took some blood. While waiting for those results they said they wanted to get some urine. Since she's not potty-trained & we couldn't get her to pee on request, they put a bag on her to catch it. She still wasn't going & she wouldn't drink any water either. So unfortunately they had to do a catheter. That was such torture for a Mommy to watch! I just cried for her as she screamed in pain. ='( The results came back for blood test & they said she didnt have hand-foot-mouth disease either (a possibility because 2 of her friends recently had it). We wont really get full urine test results for a few days, but they arent thinking it'll bring back anything.



Since everything was coming up negative, they sent us to the hospital to get a chest x-ray on her to check for pneumonia. Her doctor said sometimes little ones can have a small dose of it & not ever know it because there's not a cough. So after 3 hours in her doctor's office, we headed straight to the hospital. We got in & out pretty quick & finally headed home at 6pm.


We passed a little gift shop on the way out of the hospital & just had to get her this balloon!

When we finally got home, I gave Rylie a bath & got her in pajamas. Then she actually started talking a little. I made her chicken soup, applesauce & crackers but she only ate the later 2. We got her test results back on the x-ray & pneumonia was negative as well. We have to go back to her doctor in the morning to check her blood again & see if the white count is down. Basically we still dont know what she's got or if she's contagious & we're just giving her Tylenol/Motrin for the fever. Hopefully she'll be well in a few days! Thanks everyone for the sweet thoughts!

A couple months back Savi had a super high fever with not many other sypmtons. It turned out to be roseola (sp?) and is something kids just get and usually are ok. After 3-4 days of fever they break out in a rash somewhere on there body. Maybe Rylie has this??? HOpe she is feeling better soon!

Poor thing. Kinley had to have a cath too and it SUCKED so bad to watch. I hope she feels better by the weekend. At least the tests are coming back negative so maybe its just a yucky virus that will go away soon.
Im so ready for K to be old enough to take her temp from her mouth instead of under the arm, fighting her for it, adding a degree.. etc!
Hope she slept good last night!
