Hello everyone! We had a rough day today (3-7-11). We didn't have a good night sleep last night because Mr. Burrito kept us up. He was pretty sick then Ms. Burrito woke up crying because she was fevered. I was so worried (still am) about them. We did not let Ms. Burrito go to school today and decided to bring them to the doctor once again (for the third time).
Mr. Burrito threw up a couple of times this morning so it really triggered my nervousness.
HIGH fever is dangerous when left uncured. They both got up to 105.3 which is pretty HIGH! This is my entry to ABC Wednesday for letter H.
We brought them at the doctor this afternoon. I felt so bad with Mr. Burrito because he was in agony. They were given a dose of motrin right away and let them eat some pedialyte freeze pops to reduce their fevers.
The doctor performed an xray this time and swabbed them both for flu. We will know the result for flu tomorrow but I am praying and hoping that they don't have it. Based from the xray, Ms. Burrito is developing a Pneumonia while Mr. Burrito's xray result turned out fine. He does however have an ear infection.. Oh boy, I just wish that they could have done the tests since last visit so that the Pneumonia could have been predicted.
Instead of amoxycillin, the doctor prescribed a much stronger antibiotic for Mr. Burrito which is the Cefdinir. For Ms. Burrito's Pneumonia, she has to take azithromycin. Ms. Burrito feels better when we came home, I hope that she won't have any fever anymore tomorrow. Mr. Burrito on the other hand still has a fever. All of the three are now in bed since hubby was so tired with no sleep last night. I am so tired too but I have some tasks to write so am trying to stay awake.
Thanks to all who keep our burritos in their prayer, please continue to say a prayer for them. Thank you all so much for your concerns, well wishes, and visits.
