UPDATE: We followed up with our primary care doctor this morning for Josie.
She does indeed have strep, which we are told is not that common for her age~ She is on antibiotics and will be rechecked in 10 days. The doctor did confirm that based off of my observance and description of her activity that she more than likely did have a seizure last night.
Sometimes when a fever gets to high, this can be a related event due to the high fever. It is definitely something that we will continue to watch! Thank you for praying!
Good morning! I would like to appologize for the delay in postings for the last several hours.
For those of you that have not been following me for long, here is an update.
Two weeks ago, my husband started fighting an illness that we are still on the road to recovery for. Please read about that HERE.
Any thoughts and prayers you can send our way would be greatly appreciated!
In addition, last night, I had went to the grocery store for a few items.
When I got home, I found out that my youngest, pictured above was running a high fever and having flu like symptoms. I was home no more than 3 minutes before calling 911.
Josie, our 11 month old daughter was very dusky in color and every time would try to talk to her, she would roll her eyes back. Immediately, I knew something was not right.
To make a long story short, they took her by ambulance to our local hospital. She has strep which as you know my husband has had as well. They think that there is also the possibility that she had a seizure. This morning, we will follow up with our primary care doctor. It was a very long night in the emergency room, but I am so thankful that I did what was right and called for help. Seeing your daughter in the back of an ambulance is one of the scariest things I have EVER been through.
Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers! I will keep you posted as we find out more information. For those of you coming to my coupon class tonight, we are STILL HAVING IT, and I am looking forward to it :)
