Unexpected Hospitalization

Audrey had an appointment today for blood work. Due to the fact that it is the day after Thanksgiving the children's clinic was closed so we had our appointment scheduled at the hospital. I woke Audrey up around 8:00 a.m. to get her ready by putting her numbing cream on. I noticed that her temperature was elevated but thought it might go down after being awake and drinking for a few minutes. She began throwing up shortly after. Upon arriving to the hospital I knew we were going to at least be hooked up to an IV to battle against dehydration.

Audrey is now admitted for the next 48 hours while she is monitored for temperature, heart rate, oxygen and re-hydration.

We are so grateful for the wonderful medical care that she is receiving. We have every confidence in our team of doctors. While it isn't fun to have her admitted to the hospital we are grateful to know she is being taken such good care of.
