Sick Sick Sick

Tuesday morning I woke up feeling yucky. Ryleigh started crying and I asked Bobby to get her for me. He walked into her room and there was throw up all over her crib. She must have gotten sick at least 3 times in there. I don't know how we didn't hear her. We get her a bath and she wasn't hungry. Bobby took care of her all day while I was on the couch, bed or toilet. She wasn't too bad Tuesday. A little fussy, and not really having an apatite and a low fever but nothing major. Wednesday I woke up pretty much fine. I still want wanting to eat alot but other than that I felt a lot better. Ryleigh was worse. Very fussy, clingy, not wanting to eat or drink. Her overnight diaper (12+hrs) was not that wet. I called the Dr. and they told me to bring her in at 230pm. I brought her in and they weren't really concerned. I was rather upset. He wanted her to have a blood and urinalysis, so we went down to the lab. They did a finger prick and she did OK with it. They wanted her urine, but she hadn't peed yet. I explained to them that she was hardly peeing and I didn't want to sit there and wait for her to pee. They gave me a cup and told me to bring it back later on that evening. At 630pm the Dr. calls and said all her test came back fine. She at a piece of toast, but still wasn't drinking hardly anything. Her fever started to go up. I gave her Tylenol before she went to bed. In the morning her fever was 102. Her diaper was hardly wet, she was so fussy and didn't want to eat or drink anything. When Bobby got home we went straight to the ER. They gave her IV fluids, took 3 separate blood draws, put a catheter in her to get a clean sample of urine and did a chest xray. The ER Dr informs me that shes being admitted and she will bring me the paperwork and get us upstairs. 20 min later she comes back saying Ryleighs Dr changed his mind, as long as her tests came back OK. They all came back fine and we were sent home after 5 1/2 hrs with a follow up appt at 1250pm today. After the Dr.s today shes wanted to eat, so I let her. Tonight she had some veggies and a little bit of Jello. She saw the milk in the frig and started waving her hands (her sign for yes) i said "do you want Milk?" she waved her hands so I gave her a cup. She drank about 4 oz and wanted more. She drank about another 2oz. Then she layed her head on my chest and was holding her "silky" with one hand and sucking her thumb. She waved her hands at me and I said "yes what? You want to go night night?" She waved her hands so I took her into bed. She dove in! That's the first time shes ever demanded to go to bed....lol. Hopefully shes perking up. I miss my lil RyRy, but it was really nice to have all that cuddle time with her the past few days! Below is a pic of her from last night :(
