Hospital bound

We are headed to the hospital today. Summer had a temperature of 100.9 when she got up to pee at my mom's house last night. It was around 2 or 3 a.m. so I told them to just give her some medicine because I didn't feel like going to the hospital in the middle of the night. This morning it was only 99.6, but I still called the doctor knowing they would want her to come in and get on antibiotics. So, we are in for at least the next 48 hours. Bummer. But, at least I got to go out and have a little fun last night. I am paying for it now though. My head is pounding and I feel slightly nauseous. Oh what a way to start the day. I am going to try to make the most of it though. I know they serve spaghetti for lunch on Saturday at the hospital so I am going to order that for Summer as soon as we get there. Isn't it sad that I know that??? We were there last Saturday and that was our last meal before we left the hospital so I guess I haven't had enough time to forget yet.

I better go make sure I have everything packed that we are going to need. I am so not looking forward to this trip. On the phone the doctor said that Summer will have plenty of company. So, it sounds like we will be getting a small room. Plenty of company is never a good thing when you are referring to the number of patients she will have to play with. That means sick kids. More germs. I would rather it be plenty of visitors, but that's not likely to happen either. Oh well, it is what it is.

That STINKS! I'm sorry to hear that. We're still here and we're not sure when we're getting out. He is missing chemo right now because his counts didn't make it. Not sure if we're going straight to chemo or if we'll go home for a few days first. It depends on how his counts are anyway.

I'm glad she is on the probiotics. Hopefully that will help. And, since she's not in for chemo, maybe she'll want to eat extra spaghetti!

I am so sorry that you guys are in the hospital, I am praying for you. It is better to be safe than sorry and if this stay, getting antibiotics, keeps her from further sickness then it is definitely worth it. You are good at making the best of the unexpected and being on top of things. I'm glad they are having something that she likes so hopefully she will continue to eat well. Tell that sweet baby that auntie loves her! I love you too sis!! Hope to see you soon. XOXOXO

I'm sorry. For you and Summer. I'm sure it's not fun for either of you.

Take good care...keep those probiotics going since she's getting all those antibiotics...and I hope Summer enjoyed her spaghetti. :)
