Tuesday’s Drama

So you don’t ever get the idea that our life is boring . . .

Tuesday morning Chloe woke up with a fever of 103 something.  She felt awful and was pretty lethargic the whole day.

We went to the doc in the early afternoon; he thought maybe she had a sinus infection so prescribed an antibiotic.

About 1 1/2 hours after returning home, Chloe’s fever began to spike again.  With the spiking fever, Chloe had her biggest seizure yet.  It was certainly the most violent and the longest, lasting over 10 minutes.  It was pretty yucky to see.

I called 911.  The ambulance got here quickly and took us onto Cook Children’s Hospital.  We spent several hours there in ER running some tests and stuff.

Diagnosis:  a virus, a fever, a seizure.

We were sent home with meds to control seizing until she gets through this illness and we can get back in to see her neurologist.

Every thing’s fine.  She’s better today but still running a fever (more like 100-101 instead of 103 and 104!).  Chloe still feels yucky and doesn’t have much energy.  Being sick looks a little more pitiful on her since she has lost much of her ability to hold up her head.  She’ll be home for a couple of days.

Thanks for your prayers for her.  And we’d love more prayer for her quick healing of this virus and fever.
