ER Visit

Saturday night Ryleigh didnt sleep through the night like she normally does. She got up once, I gave her a bottle and put her back to bed. Sunday she had a runny nose. I figured it was just her fall allergies kicking in. She was fussier than normal through the day. Sunday night I layed her down for bed and I had a hard time. She was really fussy and after an hr I finally got her to sleep. I went to bed at around 9pm and at 11:15pm I heard her crying. It wasnt the normal fussy cry where she would go back to bed in a couple min. It was a "Mommy I need you now cry". I picked her up changed her, fed her a bottle and tryed to lay her back down. She wasnt having that at all. She started getting really mad and screaming and crying with tears and all! I was up for 3 hrs with her. At 430am She started again. At least this time it only took an hr to get her back to sleep. Then at 730am there she was again. I called the Dr at 830am when they opened and the Dr called me back. I told him that Ryleigh had a yellow runny nose and a slight cough. He told me to get her some cough meds and if she got worse to call him back. During the day she started Running a slight fever. Between 99 and 100 degrees. Nothing major. She was still really fussy and not eating well. At around 8pm I could see she was very tired and I tryed to lay her down. She screamed for about 1 1/2 hrs straight. It was horrible. I called the on call Dr, and explained to her Ryleighs symptoms. She wasnt a big help. She said to give her tylenol or motrin and see if that would calm her and if not I can take her to the ER. I had given her Motrin 2 hrs before, so it definitly should have kicked in by then. So Bobby and I decided to take her to the ER. She had a double ear infection. Poor girl. Today she seems a little better. Still not 100%. She still has the "sick eyes", red around them, puppy dog looking, Mommy just cuddle me eyes....lol. One plus is Ive gotten some cuddle time with her. Anyone that knows Ryleigh knows that she is just not the cuddle bug...lol. Shes eating and drinking more today, so hopefully by the weekend she will be 100% and we can have a fun weekend! The october fest is this weekend and so Is Miss Anna Banana's 6th Birthday party that we want to go to!

Poor baby!! I'm glad you figured out what was wrong. That sounds horrible. I hope she feels better soon and that you have the energy you need to help her through it. Glad you've gotten some extra snuggles;-)

Ryleigh is doing better now, it sounds like you really done the right thing by her - you knew something was up and stuck to your guns
