Emmie Update


Sleeping peacefully after the doctors



Thanks for all the prayers for Em. We just got back from the doctors. She most likely just has a virus, no flu. Thank God. But man, it was wall to wall flu when I got there. I wish they had warned me, I would never have taken her in. Everyone in a mask. They gave me one for Em. I could have used it for a diaper it was so big. Not for nothing but it is a pediatricians office you would think they would have at least child size masks. So I just covered her car seat with her blanket and prayed. He wants us to go back on Thursday to recheck her ears, they were too waxy for him to see if she has an ear infection. I have drops to use for 3 days, but her ears are so small, they can't help but be waxy. Anyway, she didn't get any of her shots today because of the fever, so one more trip is in order for Miss Em.
Meanwhile Olivia woke up with a fever, chills and body aches. She seems to be doing well with sleep and fever med. Lets pray its the same as Emmie

I just saw your Birthday post and today's post, oh my gosh, I am sooo sorry that Emmie is not feelng well. She must of gotten it from Sam via email and blogs. :-) Keep a close close eye on her as Ogden Clinic sent us home as well, then Sam's fever went down and he started to do better and then it spiked!!! Your family will be in our prayers and I'll keep a close watch on your blog in case things get worse. I can't believe it's only October and we are starting with sick kids.

So sorry to hear your little one is not well. The mask thing is crazy you would think they would have them for children, since they are the patients.
Maybe when you go back you can call and ask if there is a back door you can use instead of sitting in the waiting room with all of the other sick kids, that is what our ped tells us to do anytime we go in and then we just go straight to a room and wait, it beats sitting with many sick kids. Good luck

I will continue to pray for your kids. It's so iffy about taking them to the doctor's office especially with all that is going around and yet what can we do when they are sick. I hope Em is well soon and that Olivia is on the mend quickly too. Hugs and thanks for updating.

Emily said...

Oh dear... we'll be praying for this virus to leave your family. Never a fun time...

Chris said...

Hope she continues to sleep her way to a speedy recovery. John is sick too, fever, slight cough, tummy ache, praying his immune system is ready to fight--most probably swine flu in our case.

Oh Emmie, I hope you feel better soon! Hopefully it will be a short lived virus!

Oh my... again! And another way in which our two girls are alike... we spent the day at the doctor as well... just a case of the crude. I'll pray for your pumpkin and you pray for mine!! Loveya girl and at some point we will chat... when oh when will we chat?!?!

Glad to see such a peaceful sleeping little girl...picture my end was a bit different, another sleepless night for me. I am sure in about 3-4 days Em will be as good as new, thats normally how long these viruses last. Will pray for good news soon and hope it looks the same my end too. Hugs to Emmie and hope Olivia is feeling better soon too, she probably has the same thing.

So glad to hear that they don't think it is anything serious. LOVE the picture of her sleeping with her mouth open...what a hoot!! Scary about the doctor's office waiting area. Makes me not want to go in for a well check!!

yikes! that's a bummer that you even have to go back so soon. At least it's "just" a virus though. Praying for healing in your home...
