This last past weekend, we went to the Bay Area to visit some our friends and family. A week before our trip, Ella had an ear infection and was put on amoxicillion. The night before we left she broke out in hives and ran a fever of 102. The morning before we left we took her into urgent care and the doctor put her on another antibiotic. Thinking she would be okay, we drove to the Bay Area. As the trip progressed Ella only got worse and worse. She had a fever of 103, hives, no appetite for food, and couldn't keep any food down. So on Saturday we took her into John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. She was dehydrated so they ran an IV and also ran some tests on her. They even gave her a catheter (poor thing). That was one of the hardest things I have seen. They believed it was an allergic reaction to the amoxicillion. She broke out into hives while we were there so they gave her some steroids and benadryl though the IV.
After 7 hours in the ER they released her and said not to do anything until she gets better. Well, there went our vacation. We didn't get to see anyone. We stayed at Jordan's sister Marcie's house so we got to spend time with her and Jeff and Drew. We are sorry to those we didn't get to see. We hope to be up there soon. Since then, Ella is doing a little better. She still won't eat anything and is drinking pedialyte with 7up. I took he to the doctor today and based on her blood work results, she thinks Ella has a virus but is not sure. SO WHAT DOES SHE HAVE? It's so frustrating. We have seen 3 different doctors and no one can tell what she officially has. She is getting some blood work done tomorrow and maybe that will determine what is wrong with her.
I feel so bad for her because she is not herself and you can tell she feels uncomfortable. I love her sooo much and wish I could take her place. We hope she gets better soon so I can be with my busy little girl.
