Jenelle is Sick!

Jenelle woke up this morning with a fever of 102.9. Before taking her temperature, I had already given Tylenol Cold because she sounded stuffy. After lying her back in bed, I went to call daycare to let them know she was sick. When I returned she had vomited all over her bed.

I called the doctor's office and Roto Virus is going around - last time she had that she was in the hospital for 5 days! Two hours after the Tylenol and after giving Motrin, her fever went down to 101.5. Not good, but better than 102.9. Unfortunately she also threw up all of her seizure meds, so we're going to play the waiting game today with Diastat in hand and hopefully avoid the ER. Hopefully with her G-tube, we can avoid the hospital and keep her hydrated.

Please keep us in your prayers - Thanks!

Oh Jenelle-bell! That is a yucky high fever. Glad it is going down some. I think using the G-tube for hydration is a GREAT idea. Some cool water in the pump...it may also help her fever.

Thinking of you!

Sorry to read that Jenelle is under the weather, my son Aidan just got over a case of Rotovirus and with being on the Keto diet he dehydrated quickly. It took us 7 days to get better, hopefully Jenelle gets better alot faster.
