We had to take Dottie to the emergency room last night, she had a fever of 38.44 C (normal Adult temp is 37). She's probably just got what Jackie and Tres have had, but you know how the hospital has to run all those tests. This was the first time in the month since she was born that I've heard her cry hard. She got a little IV in her hand (first one didn't work, so they had to do the other hand), and then they did a lumbar puncture (spinal tap for you oldies out there) to check for meningitis (on a side note...anyone out there think I use parentheses too much?).
There's nothing worse than hearing your kid scream in pain when they don't know what's going on, and it's something that has to be done....unless it's something that doesn't have to be done, but I hope I never see that day.
