    Default Eve's in the hospital

    As some of you have seen on Facebook, Eve was hospitalized with a bacterial infection somewhere in her body. She has had a high fever since early Thursday morning that would come down with fever reducers, but come back up when it wore off. Aside from the fever and irritability, she has no other symptoms. Lab work was done and her white blood cell count was 27,000 and her CRP (C Reactive Protein) was 13 (range is 0.0-09). CRP indicates level of infection or something. We had to do a spinal tap and the fluid appears clear thankfully. Meningitis had been mentioned by the doctor previously. We won't know what she has until something grows on the culture- which takes up to 48 hours which is at least how long we are here for. She is getting two IV antibiotics as well. I have never had a child hospitalized before and certainly wasn't expecting to end up here. I was thinking ear infection when I took her to the doctor yesterday. Any one ever have experience with any of this? Thoughts and prayers appreciated of course.

    Update 10:52a: Doctor was just in. Her white count is down to 20,000 and CRP down to 11 which is improvement. Nothing showing on the blood, urine, or spinal at this point. Just waiting to see if something grows. Here at least 48 hours and as long as she is still spiking high fevers we have to stay here.

    Update 2/24: We are in here until tomorrow morning since she was spiking a fever yesterday afternoon and had a low grade one again last night. Doing much better though. WBC is now in the normal range, CRP is down to 7 (still high since 0.2 is the high end of the range), and all cultures still negative. Urine 100% negative for sure, and spinal and blood they do for 5 days, but we don't have to stay 5 days. If it stays negative, we will just not have a diagnosis for sure. Which I hate not knowing, but I'd rather have the unknown and her better

    I hope the docs figure it out soon!!

    My niece had an infection like that in her foot and was in the hospital for a little bit. Then I got an infection in my wrist but we caught it in time and treated it with meds. Then my sister started to get an infection (I forget where on her body) but hers was caught super early. With mine and my nieces the infected area was swollen and a little red. I wasn't able to use my wrist for a few weeks and my niece was on crutches for a long time.

    I don't know if my expirence is the same as yours. Hang in there

    Oh goodness I hope they find out what it is soon and she gets better quickly. Oh man she had a spinal done . It absolutely broke my heart when Wesley went through that but it really is the best test to rule out major things. Having a child hospitalized is so hard. I am praying for you and your little one. I hope you get to go home soon!

    Thanks all. We are supposed to be 24 hours fever free before we can go home, but sometimes if she can make it most of the day without a fever they occasionally let them go home. She had low grade fever when we medicated her tonight, but I know it would have spiked not much later. I have no idea if we will get to go home tomorrow or not. So far the preliminary cultures have no growth so that is good.
