I'm done freaking out.

~Whew~.

Doc called back earlier today and had me run some "tests" on her to make sure it wasn't an emergency. He wanted to see her but had no morning room, so decided she didn't need to go to ER and she could wait until 230p. Although I was given list of things to look for so I could take her immediately.

None of those scarier issues came up and I am back from Doc's. Apparently, the neck pain and the pants wetting are signs of strep. Crazy. So throat culture was done and he'll call in the morning. Until then, just treat her with lots of love (and motrin and fluids) and we'll have the results soon.

Thank you for all the good thoughts! The thought of my baby having meningitis scared the shit out of me.

I'm so glad she's ok. I just had the same thing with my little girl. She was fine and suddenly her temp was 104! She had a headach and her legs hurt. She has the flu (actual influenza virus. I hate when they scare you like that.

Okay, thank goodness it doesn't seem to be anything more severe. It scared the crap out of me, so I can't imagine how scary it was for you. Try not to get sick yourself.

Thanks for the update! You and she have been on my mind this afternoon.

Amanda said...

Phew. As much as I hate that the poor little girl probably has strep, that's so much better than the alternatives. I'm glad you're able to breathe, now!

Nikki said...

I'm glad she's ok. I hope the throat culture results come back normal tomorrow.

Take care of the little baby - and yourself!

Hollie said...

Glad she's ok so far. Hope she feels better soon and doesn't have anything bad. What a scare!

We think hubby's brother might have that - or mono. Neither is a great prognosis. Still waiting to hear. Keeping fingers crossed for your little one.

I hope she feels better soon. Thank goodness it's nothing serious. My 14 month old has/had a Sore throat (didn't know until Dr. looked at it) Viral infection. He said strep is uncommon in 3 and under, but possible.

So glad it's not what you feared. I hope your daughter and you will be feeling much better soon! As if you need any MORE stress in your life right now???!?!! Take care.

Krista said...

That happened to me when I was about 6 I think. Glad she'll be just fine soon!

So glad it is "simple". Although with a little one, no matter if they are 3 mos or 3 years...it is so hard to watch them be sick.

KatieM said...

Whew....so glad to see this update as I have been checking all day. I was so worried about meningitis after your last post, but I'm glad to see your doc was able to see her. Crazy about the bladder issues as I had no idea it could indicate strep!

Either way, I hope the strep comes back negative (although even positive is better than the could have been's), all was just a fluke and she is feeling better tomorrow!

((hugs))

Your doc doesn't have the rapid strep test? Boo! Those results are ready in 5 minutes!
Anyway, hope she feels better soon. Strep is awful...our house goes through it a couple times a year, and its no fun!

Cara said...

Whew - I've been thinking about you all evening.
Now..onto read your next worry.

I hope it's not strep, but I'm glad it's not anything worse. Maybe it's the same thing you've had the last day or so. You guys get better soon.
