We went to the hospital. This is one shot of pretty scenery near a golf course as we drove along the highway on our way to Memorial Hospital.
We were on our way to see baby Chloe. After calling the Doctor's office on two occasions last week and essentially being refused an appointment as they advised Liv to just keep doing what she was doing which was alternating motrin then tylenol to help keep fever down and encouraging fluids. Liv felt enough was enough after many days of the same thing with no change, so this afternoon, Olivia took her to the E.R.. Chloe wa promptly admitted to the hospital. Her diagnosis is unsure as I write, but she has been tested for Swine Flu and tested negative. Her symptoms are a fever hovering near 101.5 degrees for too many days, lethargy and intermittant vomiting and barely eating or nursing. Thankfully, the vomiting has ceased. Her lungs are clear. She has had a few tests. The results have not been determined yet, but it seems to be bacterial, not viral, therefore not contagious. Baby Chloe is gettting hydration and antibiotics through an i.v..
We're praying for
1. quick recovery for Chloe
2. protection and rest for Olivia as she stays with Chloe who is getting an i.v.
3. for her husband, Chris and other blessings, Sean and Eleanor
Please join us in praying.
Here is Mike encouragng Chloe to take some water from a straw.
Mike is a natural gracious "nurse".
After we spent some time with Liv and Chloe, Mike and I stayed with Sean and Eleanor so Chris could to the hospital awhile. I painted Eleanor's toenails
"Revlon California Sunshine".
They can call it whatever cutesy name they want, but Mike and I decided to call it
I'd say she was pleased.
I painted her toenails and Mike painted her fingernails!
Mike, Sean and Eleanor
