What did we do on the first day of the year?
We brought my daughter to the ER because she had a high fever that wouldn’t go away after taking medicine.
She has never had a fever that high before.
And it worried me that she had rapid breathing and her pulse was fast.
The high fever scared me a little.
Thank God for health insurance and a great hospital. There was a little complication as we didn’t get our new insurance cards yet because our insurance changed this year.
Oh and there was a black out at the hospital! Everything went dark for a few seconds before the generator kicked in.
The ER doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia. She didn’t have any other symptoms like coughing, just the high fever and rapid breathing.
I was stressed out watching her burn up with a fever and being uncomfortable. But I’m glad we took her to the hospital instead of waiting. She is doing better now since taking the meds.
I may be not as active on posting things here this week as she is still recovering. And this stressed out mom is recovering as well!
