Remember this? Boy does that look familiar, only I'm afraid I'm going to start looking like that too!
This really has not been our week. My 9yr old has been having stomach issues and a fever for days. Not a little fever. Mostly 103+ to 104.6. Anyway, I brought her in to an after hours clinic Tuesday and she tested positive for strep and got antibiotics. The fever still won't go away and last night was another fever filled (and screaming about her stomach) night so I followed up at her regular ped's office today.
Her white cells are really high (high granulocytes). They reswabbed her throat but the rapid test didn't show strep immediately like before so it may be something else going on now. They did xrays to rule out a chest or abdominal problem. No pneumonia whew!
The kids are supposed to go on a month long road trip IN A WEEK. Without me. To Yellowstone, numerous tourist stops, and Glacier National Park. They are renting a house and will be doing white water rafting and horseback riding in Montana. I really don't think my mom was planning a stop-at-an-ER-somewhere-out-west trip.
Now we are waiting another 48 hrs to wait out the fever and if it is still not down then back to the ped's again. UGH!
At least her older sister doesn't have whatever it is...
I probably shouldn't
Where I smash myself yet again
The strange smell and why I need to unplug things faster during a storm
It rained here yesterday. I was watching the storm with the window open and suddenly smelled this weird metallic burning smell in the air. Lightning crashed overhead, then the lights went out.
When our power came on, several hours and no a/c later later
Yes, we got a new one and I am planning to unplug everything before (not during) the next storm hits!
