Sick Banana Again

I knew something was up yesterday morning when I had to wake Anna up two hours after she normally wakes up. She just wanted to snuggle with me all during church and then she started burning up. When her fever was still high after Tylenol we decided to take her to the doctor this afternoon. A few months ago when she was so sick and had to go to the ER and all, the doctor had told us that for the next six months we had to bring her in whenever she got a fever.
Her ears and respiratory system looked fine so they wanted to do a blood test and cath her for a UA. Thankfully both of those came back normal, other than the UA showing that she was somewhat dehydrated. Since they don't know what exactly is wrong and because of the dehydration and her being so young, they want me to bring her back in tomorrow morning. They also want us to watch her closely tonight and if she doesn't produce any wet diapers or seems to go downhill we are supposed to take her to the ER. We really don't want to have to do that again!
Thankfully, she seems to be doing ok. She is feeling a little cooler and she ate a Pedialight Popsicle and drank some pedialight and some water. She hasn't had a wet diaper yet, but we are happy that she has been drinking and she is producing tears, so that is a good sign.
I also went and bought her liquid vitamins and got those in her tonight, hopefully that will help kill whatever bugs she has.
We are supposed to leave on Wednesday for our trip to a ranch in Idaho that we are all very excited about and looking forward too. I really want her to be better before we leave though, at least to be hydrated and for the fever to have broken.
If you think of it, please pray for the little thing. I hate it when she's sick, but there is the silver lining of more snuggle time.

Amy I am so sorry you are having to deal with this again! It is so hard to watch our little ones suffer, especially when you don't really have an answer of what is causing it. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
