My Poor Bambino

October 10, 2010

On Friday, Bella's school called me saying she wasn't feeling well.  I promptly left work and went to pick her up.  When I got there they were in cooking class and she seemed happy and fine.  I thought, "Great took more time off work for nothing!"  I was very wrong!  We left her school and headed home.  Bella was asleep in the car before we got home and slept most of the afternoon.  I went to check on her and realized she was burning up.  I checked and she had a temp of 102.5!  I immediately got her some Motrin, and it seemed to work pretty quickly.  Then around 4:30 I checked her again and she was at 102.6.  I got on the phone and called the after hours doctor at our clinic.  They told me to bring her right in.  She was tested for strep, flu, and urinary tract infection.  All came back negative and the doctor said it was either a bad cold or a small virus.  Either way, no meds could be prescribed.  For the rest of the night Bella was normal and playing.  When Eric got home, she had 2 servings of bbq & played all night.  The next morning she was warm, but not hot or acting sick.  We took her to Grandma's, because we were having a couples weekend in Fredericksburg.  We left and I must have called to check in at least 10 times all day Saturday.  Eric's mom said she was good, a little warm, but not running high fevers.

We got back today and she has been back and forth.  She does well on Motrin or Tylenol, but right when it wears off, the fever comes right back.  Right now she is watching Barney in her pj's.  Tomorrow, I am calling Dr. B to get her back in to make sure there's nothing else they can find.  Grandma is going to watch her tomorrow all day for us.  (God Bless her!) I am worried but staying calm and praying this goes away quickly, and my baby girl us back to normal!
