Wow what a week!

WOW!! This has been a crazy week. Sunday when I came home from work Baylee was running a fever and throwing up. Well Monday she wasnt any better so off to the dr we go. Get there, dr thinks she has the flu but decides to do a UA because of her past kidney issues.(thats another story in its self). Anyway, UA comes back and the proteins in her urine are a 4+ which I am guessing is pretty bad. The dr then tells me that she has a severe kidney infection. WHAT!!! You got to be kidding me. Well, I had told the dr that for the past month or so, Baylee had been coming up with a fever of about 100-101 for about a day then it would go away for a week or so. Well, we are wondering if she hasnt had this infection all this time. Anyway, a shot of Rocefin later we are heading to go get antibiotics and the dr tells me that Baylee's white blood cell count is over 25,000. She then tells me"this is really bad". She wants us back in the morning. Well around 4:00pm on Monday Baylee starts telling me her rear is hurting where she got the shot. I tell her, oh it will be sore, well I look at it and low and behold, there is a blood blister the size of your palm and her skin is white and swollen. So off to the dr we go, AGAIN!!! Come to find out, the nurse hit a vein. So everything checks out on that and we come back in the morning. Tuesday morning we go to the dr and Baylee gets another shot of Rocephin and starts the antibiotics, 1500mg a day of Keflex. CRAZY!!!! So we come home. Wednesday, we go back to the dr for another UA and blood work to make sure everything is clearing up. Baylee goes to school in the aftenoon, and she comes home saying she is really tired and freezing and she is starting to have cramping type pain. So I call the dr, and off to the dr we go again!!!! We do another UA and wait til morning to find out the results. So now we are at Thursday, she still isnt feeling the greatest and now we have this new pain. Thursday we get a call saying all the UA's are coming back fine and so is the blood work. So why the pain? Well off to the dr we go again, FOR THE 6TH TIME!!!!! Do an xray and more blood work and UA, nothing. Also draw blood to make sure the kidney is working good. Well this morning we get a call saying the blood work came back fine, the kidney's are working normal and all is good. We think the pains are due to being clogged up inside. So this weekend she gets to take some good ole Milk of Magnesia to see if we cant fix the problem. Oh and did I fail to mention, this kidney infection was so bad she should have been in the hospital Monday!!! Well all is good and we are in the right track to getting her well again.
