Sweet baby Janes...


Here is another post about our sweet baby Maryn Jane. It seems as though she is getting a lot of her own posts lately. Maryn was really sick for 9 days. 9 days of a fever 102 +, she was so miserable. So here is the run down of the last 2 weeks. I took Maryn in for a follow up with the Dr. for her pinkie nail on monday Nov. 1st. While we were there she noticed that Maryn had thrush in her mouth and around her mouth. Weird since she is 14 months and not nursing. She started the Nystatin and it was helping a ton. On tuesday she started running a fever and wasn't sleeping through the night so I took her back on thursday and found out that she also had developed an ear infection. She started Amoxil on thursday night. She ran her fever all through the weekend and I took her back to the Dr. on Monday morning and her ear infection had cleared but she still had thrush. The Dr. sent us over to the hospital to have some blood work done. They called that evening and told us that we needed to take Maryn to the ER and get a Rocefin shot since her white blood cell count was pretty elevated, just in case it was a bacterial infection that could get in her blood. So off we went at 6:45 and while we were there they did chest x-rays, flu test, uti test, a rocefin shot, and lots of poking and prodding of baby Janes. She was miserable. While we were there her fever was 102.6. We left a little after 2:00am. On tuesday she still had the fever but it was down a little. We started on Omnicef. We called the Dr. back on wednesday when she was still running a fever and the other Dr. called Bry back and said that the mono test had come back negative but that Maryn's SED count was throught the roof...106- when normal is 20. So she def had something going on that on thursday they needed to do another blood draw and if her WBC and SED were still high that we would need to meet with a disease specialist. So now we were starting to freak out ! On thursday morning her normal Dr. called and Maryn's fever had subsided so she didn't feel it was necessary to do the blood work until monday. She think maybe a really bad sinus infection ?! WHAT ?!?! Well if that is all it was thank goodness, but wow ! What a miserable week and a half for our baby girl !
