Emma Is In The Hospital :(

Yep, you read it right. Miss Emma was admitted yesterday to Women & Children's hospital. She started running a 104 degree temp on Sunday morning and was real lethargic. She kept sleeping and not eating/drinking and had us worried. Late Sunday evening she started eating a little bit but never was herself. So on Monday we took her to Dr. Dudley just to have her checked out. Keep in mind she had just stared a 20 day dose of Omnicef. Well her ears/eyes/throat checked out fine but her white blood count was a little high. So we came straight to the hospital and got a chest x-ray. Luckily it was fine but her airways were a little inflamed. She has a ton of mucous in her but it seems to be getting better now. Also, she is slightly dehydrated so she is getting fluids. We still aren't sure what infection she has but they are testing her stool for a bacteria and also Rotavirus. We should hear something soon on that.

So for now we are hanging out in our little room and hope to be in a another day or two. Luckily my work is so understanding and said to take all the time I need. George worked tons of overtime last week so he can use those hours to cover his missed days this week instead of using his vacation.

Please say a prayer and send some get well wishes to Miss Emma. She is such a trooper when she is sick and has the best manners. I'm so proud of her! Hope to update soon with good news!

So sorry to hear that she is so sick! I thought all the cooties would be gone by now since spring is here, but Sam has been running a 102 fever since Sun. so there is definitely still stuff going around. I know she has had a rough winter and pray that she will be feeling better real soon:)
