Worried Mom

Would y'all send up a prayer for Savannah please? Hubby is on the way to the emergency room with Savannah. He called the after hours care line for her doctor & the nurse said to take her to the children's ward ER. Savannah is running a temp of 100.3, not very high really, has been complaining of severe non-stop stomach cramps since about 2:00 this afternoon, has thrown up once, & has not been to potty since this morning when she got up at 7:00. The nurse said if it was the stomach virus that's going around, she'd be throwing up every hour for 24 hours & the pain would go away after each episode. She's just been laying on the couch curled up in a ball & moaning since we got home from church. I'm praying she hasen't gotten food poisoining from somethng she ate for lunch at church today. I'm home with TC & he's as worried as I am. I didn't want to take him to the hospital & chance exposing him to anything.

We're with you. Good idea to get her to medical treatment before it turns into something more serious. She'll probably be okay with a little medical intervention.

As for throwing up and visits to the potty, has she consumed enough to warrant visits to the bathroom? Perhaps there's not enough right now to get rid of. Be that as it may, good thoughts and prayers are sent your way.

I've been a mamma many times and it is never easy when one of our chicks is feeling bad. I'd much rather trade places with them than have them suffer.

Thanks Katie & Constance! We fought too hard too get her here to take chances. She was born 10 weeks early & has been a fighter since day one.

She was drinking a good bit before she got sick. As soon as she got sick though, she quit drinking. Her mouth is still wet, the nurse had me check that, but it was starting to get dry.

Poor baby. Sending a little prayer up for your Savannah. Hope with care and medication, she will feel better soon. Please let us know how she is doing.

Thanks wasabi!!

I have to praise my hubby greatly too right now. He came home from working a 12 hour shift, has not eaten anything since last night at supper, & without blinking an eye or stopping took her to the hospital. She is 100% daddy's little girl.
