Quick Update

Hannah woke up yesterday morning calling for me (as she has done every morning since she got sick).  I could tell by looking at her that she had a fever, but when I took her temp it was 106.5.

I freaked a tiny bit, I admit...but I kept it pretty cool for Hannah.  Only my insides were freaking.

We got her in the car and I sped drove her to the ER.

They ran some tests and did a chest X-Ray and diagnosed her with pneumonia.

I might add we did go see the pediatrician on Friday, wish they had done a chest x-ray at that point rather then send us home telling us to wait it out a few more days (they didn't suspect pneumonia because it's low in her lungs and she is not having trouble breathing and a couple of the more obvious symptoms didn't begin until later on Friday).

We were able to go home after a few hours in the ER, and now that she has been on antibiotics for 24 hours she is finally showing some signs of improvement.

Hoping she might be able to return to school later this week.

Praying she feels better fast. And I don't blame you one bit about freaking out.

Wow, that was high, but good for you not freaking out openly. I'm so glad she's improving now with medication!

That such a high temp! Sounds like you handled it well. I probably wouldn't have kept my cool on the outside. I'm so glad she's doing better.

Holey Smokes! 106.5? I would really freak out if Lukas was that high. I am a bit late here (been under the radar for a while now) but I am glad she made it through that.
