no sleep

Just got home from an ER visit...Fern has a urinary tract infection.
Yesterday she was feeling warm and seemed to be a bit fussy the last 2 days...not exactly the signs of ear infections, but similar. Then last night, she woke at 12:30 and I brought her into bed with us. She just wouldn't settle, and would fall asleep for a little stretch and wake again, wanting to nurse and fuss. Finally, at 3:30 AM, I realized she was REALLY hot, and realized she wasn't going back to sleep and we had to actually get out of bed and do something. Her temperature was 105.6. Pretty scary. I got packed for the ER and I drove her to CHOP. Long story shortish, she has a script for antibiotics and I went to two pharmacies and neither had the drug. I am trying to function on an hour of sleep and need some rest. Say a prayer for her little body, not only that it heals, but also that the future tests don't show any anatomic issues.
Funny, Sage was hospitalized at CHOP at about the same age (a month younger maybe) for a UTI.
Poor little lump, I feel like she has been sick a lot.
Ok, gonna try to go rest...should be interesting.


  1. Honey love.... I am so sorry that the tootsie has been sick so often lately. I hope that all of you are filled with rest and peace very soon.

  2. That sounds like a nightmare! I am so sorry. Is there anything I can do to help?

  3. this is awful, marni!!! I'm so so sorry. I hope all is well by today? Sheesh. Rest assured, every second you are caring for her, feeding her, holding and medicating her, matters. Not to over spiritualize but I will, you're a picture of Him. Will be praying for relief.
