Anna's Doctor Appointment

Anna had her follow up appointment with her doctor this afternoon. Her fever came back and her white blood cell count is still elevated. They think she might have a kidney infection. They will know for sure tomorrow morning when the urine culture comes back from the lab. They gave her an injection of a strong antibiotic today. She did not enjoy that because it stings and it goes right in the muscle. They want to do an ultrasound and some other tests to determine why she got this infection.
She is also dehydrated. We are really pushing the liquids, but she is a stubborn little girl and doesn't want to drink. She has to have two to three wet diapers otherwise we have to take her to the ER to get an IV. Thankfully, she did have a wet diaper about an hour ago. The poor thing is in pain whenever she goes though.
Right now she is sleeping and Mommy and Daddy are worn out!
