I'm calling today a sick day.
Roo came down with a raging fever last night.
We took her to the after-hours care and spent four hours there. Her high fever, an infection and anxiety caused her heart to race out of control and we spent three of those hours in a panic-gripping fear.
This morning she woke up and the fever hasn't broken, but thank god, her heart rate is down. She's got a doctor's appointment this afternoon and her doctor is an amazing doctor and he's part of the pediatric cardiac unit so maybe he can clear the air for us... because it's in the back of our heads that her heart could've burst under such strain.
And what can you do?
What can you possibly do for your child when her heart is beating at almost 230 BPM? What do you do?
I'm an emotional wreck and utterly exhausted...
Here's to hoping that today will be a 100% than yesterday and that my precious baby will be okay.
