They phoned on Monday to say everything was fine and I said, "she's still got the fever though".
On Wed they phoned again and this time said, if she has another fever to bring her in on Thurs.
She had three.
So in we went yesterday and it was HELL.
He drew blood, sent us for x-rays and scans of her bladder/ kidney area and all that showed was enlarged tubes or something like that.
I get very vague with the details...
We went back to him and he ordered more scans - similar to an HSG where they squirt dye into your body.
This time to squirt dye into Kendra's bladder to see where it went - up into the tubes properly or if it was blocked somewhere.
We just finished that one (another horrible experience for both K and me) when they told us to go straight up to Dr S's rooms.
Yes. He had the blood results back and it was "not good" (his words, not mine).
3 things were out of whack.
Leucocytes, _____ and _____ :) The last one's normal range is between 1 and 4. Hers was 211.
So he had her admitted to the hospital immediately.
We had a chance to go home to fetch her stuff and say good-bye to Connor who told us he "missed Daddy, missed Kendra, missed Mummy".
Of course I've been crying too, imagining the worst, but also just because she is so traumatised when they do anything to her.
And I get it!
I am exactly the same with all these needles, pushing and shoving.
Thank goodness for D.
So K's laying on her bed and I'm squashed into a tiny corner (it's going to be fun when D sleeps here tonight!)
Oh, yes. We both left work before 2 yesterday so we still have a good half a week left before we can go on holiday.
We've had to compromise because someone's got to be here with her at all times.
He's gone in to do everything he needs to so he can be off properly tomorrow, a day early, and I'll do what I can from here (emails and such) but the real work I will have to do tomorrow, at work. I need access to some of our systems.
So that's where we're at.
We're going to be here for 5 long days.
Christmas in hospital!
Who would have thought?!
Especially since I read that post you linked to, Ginger, on Melissa's blog?
Here's another video of Kendra telling me she wants to go in my bag to work. Background - when they're being particularly cute, I say, "K, you're so cute, can I take you to work in my handbag?"
