Her fever stayed high for 4 more days, getting as high as 40.3-even with using Tylenol regularly. Her neck glands swelled up so much that at one point our doctors were convinced she had mumps. She didn’t eat much and her cough got so bad that it broke blood vessels in her eye. Her eye looked pretty scary, and when she saw it in the mirror she cried and held her hand up to block herself from seeing it. It really stressed her out, poor little girl.
They took X-rays three different times; she ended up with pneumonia so they were keeping an eye on her lungs. Once the mumps were ruled out by blood tests and a flu virus tested positive her antibiotics were changed around and she started improving.
What a stressful week that was, we were happy to be discharged on the 28th and told we could head home. (Home, home.) Yahoo! Yahoo!
