Here’s the end of the story.
I got the call at work on Thursday from Cora’s doctor. It turns out this whole thing was caused by a run of the mill bladder infection. The object lesson we can all take away from this is: Make sure your kids aren’t misdiagnosed, mmm’kay. We have her on a 10 day dose of an incredibly strong antibiotic. Her fever broke on Saturday (so she had an incredibly high fever of 104 degrees or higher for exactly 8 days). Sunday she started to tear apart the house in true baby fashion. Today she’s been unstoppable. She’s still temperamental, has an incredible desire to ALWAYS be touching me, but she’s getting better. We have to go back to the doctor on this coming Monday to make sure everything is okay before we are really out of the water.
We are all relaxing, and feeling hugely relieved.
That was the worst week of my life. Period.
This week I will get the website rolling again. I’m hugely backlogged on reviews, and I plan on doing at least one round of mini reviews for the SPFBO, if not two (har har). Today will just have this post because I was up all day and night doing July 4 stuff, but Wednesday start expecting regular content.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts, and well wishes during this absolutely terrifying time in our lives. It meant the world to me and my family.
Thanks for the update, Sarah. Here’s hoping everything resolves well.
I’m so glad it wasn’t something more serious (but that’s frustrating that it took so long to diagnose).
What a total relief!! I’m happy for you!!
