The Scoop from Today

Back to the doc again today.  They are doing a blood count and a blood culture, which meant they had to stick her and draw blood.  It didn't go well...they had to stick her 3 times before it worked.  Thankfully this kept us from going to the ER to have it done (which was about to happen until stick #3).  We are looking at 2 options now:

1: She has a blood infection...possibly the bacteria from her UTI got into the blood stream.  This would mean 10 days of Rocephin shots.  She had shot #1 today.  These are super painful.  This doctor's office is not open on the weekends, so to avoid a hospital stay (which was offered) I agreed to take her to the ER over the weekend to continue to get her shots.  OF COURSE I would rather do that than stay in the hospital.

Her UTI is gone, so the blood infection is the only thing the docs can think of as a possibility now.

2: If it is not a blood infection then this means a for sure hospital stay to figure out what is going on.  I LOVE our children's hospital.  We are so blessed to live so close.  I do not have one single complaint about it...even the parking is okay! is SO hard to take care of my gal the way I like to in a hospital.  She prefers to be held way more than is possible when she is hooked to all those machines.  So I am for sure praying that we don't go this route!!

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers!  My specific prayers are for complete healing and no more fever now that we are getting this round of shots...also no hospital stay.
