Poor Ella

Ella was admitted into CHOC hospital's ER yesterday with a fever of 106 degrees and dehydration. She had been sick for 5 days with raging temps and has been totally lethargic as well. They ran all sorts of tests and after hours or resting, waiting and some re-testing we found out she has a kidney infection. The ER was awful. They had to put a catheter in twice and 3 nurses had to hold her down for 45 min. while they took 8 viles of blood. It was the hardest thing in the world to hold her down and watch her scream so loud and so much she almost threw-up. The nurse said that ella was the strongest girl in the ER that she had ever had to draw blood from. I think we're in trouble in her teen years.
So she had lots of fluids and antibiotics pumped into her blood stream and we were released at 3:30am. We will just have a few follow-up appt at her dr's office. Then, at the end of the 10 day antibiotic, we will be running a few tests and doing some ultrasounds. They want to be sure everything is anatomically right with her as she is really young to be getting a kidney infection.
We will keep you all posted as we know more. But for now she is good!!!
