Didn't I just post a similar picture a few weeks ago? Tahlia is sick again :-(
She wasn't herself on Monday during the day, but by evening she was complaining of a sore throat and headache, running a high fever and was up for most of the night with bark-like coughing. I took her to the doctor yesterday and the good news is that her lungs sounded fine, her ears were clear and her strep test came back negative. The bad news is that it is all viral and there is nothing the doctor could do to make her feel better. Her fever is scary high. At the doctor's office it measured 105.1. Motrin seems to make her perk up more so than Tylenol, but as soon as it wears off, she is right back at 104-105. The other bad thing is that I had to cancel a photo shoot with this gorgeous girl. Major bummer but I will make it up to her, though!
Last night after Tahlia had gone to bed, she woke up around 9 PM coughing and when I went in to check on her, she started vomiting blood. That really scared me. I was ready to take her to the ER right then and there, but Matt and I decided to call the pediatrician on call first. After consulting with her, we decided it was most likely blood that was mixed with mucus and drainage from her nose and not pure blood from her lungs or stomach. I was very worried regardless and didn't sleep much less night because I kept going into her room to make sure she was okay. I am pretty confident now that the pediatrician was right, since this morning Tahlia's nose was all bloody. But when I saw my girl throwing up blood last night, I got a little freaked out. Tahlia is still running a fever today. Hopefully the rest of the family doesn't come down with it; especially since it is so close to Easter.
On a much brighter note,I hear referrals are coming and some bloggy friends are about to see their children for the first time. I am so excited for them! Such a happy, happy time...
