8 weeks old
For those of you who don't know over Thanksgiving our baby had a fever which in turn resulted to a trip to the ER, she had elevated white blood cell count and needed a spinal tap to rule out meningitis, a catheter was put in to rule out a urinary tract infection, and a nose swab to rule out the flu and rsv. I didn't know it was so serious, but when itty bitty's have fevers it is pretty serious and all precautionary measures are taken. We ended up having to spend the night at children's hospital in madison. Scary stuff. It was a virus that this girl's immune system was trying to fight off. With pink eye the week before then getting a wonderful cold virus her immune system was working overtime, not to name any names but I think her brother had something to do with it. She has improved and is back to her normal self. Having going through that really puts things into perspective. Having health, and a loving family is really all that matters in life.
