This Weekend Officially Sucks!!! (Follow Up Edition)

09 May

Okay, so I mentioned yesterday how this weekend blows.  Well, it got a little bit worse, and a little more scary, last night.  As mentioned, Tammy started not feeling well Saturday morning.  She was just exhausted.  We canceled D’s birthday party and were upset about that.  Well it’s a good thing we did.

At 4pm, Tammy went from exhausted worse.  She began spending a lot of time in the bathroom.  By 9:30 we decided to call the University Hospital’s nurse-midwife emergency hotline.  They recommended that we get Tammy in and get her some fluids.

Tammy’s mom came over and watched D for us.  We were checked in by 10:30 and Tammy was running a fever of 100.94 F (38.3 C).  Within a few hours she was up to 102 F (38.9 C).  Around 2am she was admitted to the emergency short stay and her temp had come back down to 100.94 F (38.3 C).  She had received 3 bags of fluids before 3am and would have 4.5 in total before being released at 2pm today.

We’re home now and she’s resting.  Her stomach has settled and she’s been able to eat a little bit.  We’ll do our best to keep her hydrated.  Under normal circumstances this wouldn’t have been so scary but at 28 weeks pregnant, dehydration and a fever can be bad news for baby.  Boy #2 seems to be doing well and showed no signs of distress during our 15.5 hour stay at the hospital.

    Glad to hear everything is turning out well…
    Dehydration is NEVER something you want to endure…trust me.
    Been through that too many times when I was younger.

    I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Take care…all of you.

      Gladly, we’re all feeling better. The bug is still with us, as no one is eating much, but it is getting better. Onward and upward 🙂
