to the hospital that is. She seems to like to visit the hospital during the busy season, Dec-Feb. This was her first visit in 13 months. Took her to the doctor on Mon for a rash that she developed Sunday night. She was a bright red cherry. They decided it was an allergic reaction to her antibiotic. Now everyone in the family is allergic to penicillin, that makes it easy to remember! They ran more test since she was still running a 104 temp. Her white blood count was elevated, so she got a shot of antibiotic and blood cultures were taken. She slept the rest of the day. Late afternoon her temp finally broke!! Back to the doc on Tues. Really no change and WBC was still elevated, so another shot of antibiotic and every doc came in to see the rash and give their opinion. They thought maybe mono or kowaski, or still possibly a strep rash and an allergic reaction rash together. Tues night Sarah decided to do a weird breathing sound, so we loaded her up and headed to the ER. Of course on arrival, they freaked out at the rash! She never went back to sleep, so she never made the sound again. They ran tons of tests and came back with strep rash with an allergic reaction rash on top--they really never addressed the breathing, just the rash. All her bloodwork came back normal, praise the Lord! She slept most of yesterday. Today she has been up just a bit more, still not eating, but drinking well. She has more swelling and rash today. This is the first day without the steroids, so you can get what is called a rebound reaction from coming off steroids. She is a sick little girl. Keep her in your prayers. I am ready to have my dancing princess back!
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
