What a day/morning.
Paisley is down for a nap so I am going to give a quick update on the blog from all of the craziness and prayer requests we had this morning since it’s hard to update everyone via different social media.
About 7:00 this morning Paisley woke up crying and felt warm. Zack had gone into the kitchen to get her some Motrin (because she’s been running a low grade fever for about a week) and I had given her a sippy cup of water. When she got done drinking she handed her cup back to me and went into a seizure.
We went through this seizure scare back in January but at that time we were battling the flu which had caused her high temp and seizure.
After several pokes, samples, and Popsicles later, we are finally home. Based on her urine sample, she has a UTI which may be causing this fever. I had no idea she had one-we change her diaper frequently, she isn’t red in that area, and to my understanding a UTI will have a really fowl smell? She doesn’t have any of that. We haven’t had any juice in our house for about two weeks-only water so I am a little concerned about how that came about. Any of my nurse blogger friends have any comments on this? I would love some insight.
I am praying that this is the cause of this rising temperature and seizure and that somehow we can get her health back on track. This month has seemed like a roller coaster of doctor and ER visits with a dose of some sort of medicine every six hours.
I know we are way better off than a lot of other people in this world and I am so thankful for the health that we do have but it is so hard to see your baby like this. I have so much appreciation for parents who deal with this and who live in hospitals with their kids.
Tomorrow I will schedule an appointment with her pediatrician and we will go from there. We may be referred to a neurologist as well just to rule that possibility out.
As of right now she has drank about two cups of water, ate really well, and is down for a nap with her antibiotic. Praying for a quick recovery and that we can get this resolved.
I would like to thank everyone for the kind words and prayers. We are so blessed with amazing friends and family. I will try to keep things updated on the blog as much as I can but if I am on a hiatus then you know I am with her.
Thank you to Aunt Tammy, my Mother-in-law, Mimi, Papaw, Papa, and Justin for coming by the hospital to check on her!
Also, we lost my Uncle this morning. If you wouldn’t mind to say a little prayer for my Aunt for peace and comfort during this time I would appreciate it so much.
