It is a good job that at the beginning of the week I felt ok. I took my eldest grandaughter to the doctor and he then sent her to be admitted into hospital as he said she had Quince. The consultant at hospital disagreed with that and said it was Glandular fever and did blood tests and put a drip up, her blood pressure was very low so they did it every hour through the night. They gave her painkiller and paracetomal as temperature was up a bit. Kara was not impressed as she was so tired and lethargic, also aching all over and painful to move. Next day they said infection was low so it was glandular fever, Kara was having steroids intravenously to reduce swelling in throat. They then said the glandular fever test had come back negative so she had a bacterial infection somewhere! She then had two antibiotics both intravenously which should work on any infection, so they said. Two days later she is still no better and they discharge her and say they will get the results next week as it takes longer for these blood tests. They are now saying it is maybe some kind of viral infection but really they don’t know. Kara is still in bed very tired and aches all over, throat still sore and glands up all over, feels sick when eats. Hopefully tests will show something so it can be treated and we will have Kara back to normal.
Youngest grandaughter developed a water infection that causes sickness and has had this all week so could not go to play school which she is not very happy about. Was sick again last night a couple of times so still not recovered.
Her big sister had bad pains in tummy and was crying so Mum thought maybe she was getting it too but took her to the doctor just in case and she has a grumbling appendix, so we just hope and pray that it settles down.
I am having a jama day and will probably be doing the same tommorow as I am shattered. Karas parents both work so I have been at the hospital with her. I really wish I could take their pain away and hope to god the tests come back with nothing too serious as I did worry when I knew they were testing for lymphoma.
Hopefully next week will be more normal and I will get some writing completed and I have a book to review so will hopefully get that written up tommorow.
Hope your week was less hectic and where has the sunshine gone?
