We went to the hospital early Wednesday morning because Emma was running a fever! We were admitted to the 8th floor and monitored. Ran some tests, fever came down, nothing seemed wrong so we were sent home yesterday early evening! We gave Emma her bath and I went to bed( I have been taking the night shifts). Scott came and got me a few minutes later to come look at Emma. Emma was VERY blue, modeled, lethargic, and unresponsive! We turned up her oxygen as high as it would go and called 911. We were rushed to CMC in Dallas! I was never so happy to see the Koch and one of our nurses Robin. Emma had pinked up by the time we got to the ER. However, after running several tests, it was determined that her CRP and white blood cell count are elevated so more than likely, there is an infection somewhere. So, she has been started on two antibiotics.
Emma is stable, but our road over the next few weeks will be bumpy! Emma is growing out of her shunt and may have to have an intervention done before surgery. Please be praying that The decisions made over the next few days will be beneficial and best for Emma! Pray the infections leave her little body and she is infection free soon!
Scott and I are both physically and emotionally drained and could use you prayers as well!
We will update as we learn more!
God is good! All the time!
