Admitted to the Hospital

So Eliza was admitted to the hospital last night. We decided to go to the medi center because her fever kept spiking yesterday. They were closed so we headed over to the the ER. We were in the ER for 7 hours. They had trouble getting blood from her and had to try in four different spots. They had to put in a catheter to get a urine sample. I was very upset through the hole ordeal. I even had to leave at one point.

The urine was cloudy and had some abnormalities. They think she has a urinary tract infection but it will take 24-48 hours for the culture to come back. She has an IV and is getting fluids and antibiotics.


We found out we were being admitted around 6:00 p.m. and didn't get a room for about another six hours. Pete came up to the room to help us get settled but only one parent was allowed to stay the night. My accommodations ( a chair pull out bed) were less than accommodating. I will have pictures- don't worry!

So we will be here for a while. Pete will be staying the night tonight. I will be blogging via my husband's laptop.

Poor Eliza! and poor you... what a LONGGGG ordeal! I hope they can clear it up quickly and make her feel all better.

I also hope this "fixes" all the other things that have been bugging her lately... you certainly need a break from all of this!

Hugs and kisses to you all!

I'm sorry to hear that Eliza is sick! But at least being admitted into the hospital probably means they are going to focus on getting her healthy again for good. Good luck. I'll be thinking about you guys.

Oh, poor baby. I'm thinking of you! I know this must be scary. The good news is that you are right where you need to be.

I'm praying that you and Eliza will be home soon--safe and sound--and healthy!
