Namine was feeling much better by the time we got home from the urgent care clinic. At that point, it was quarter of eleven, so we ate our Fazoli’s and put her to bed. She was happy to go.
All things told, Namine’s heart catheterization went well. The doctors were able to see what they wanted to see, and we were able to go home by evening. But now we have complications to deal with.
Namine was supposed to have physical therapy this morning, but she has a fever of over 100. Consequently, we kept her home. Actually, we let her sleep in; she didn’t even wake up until 10:45, and sleeping late is not Namine’s style. Usually she’s up at the crack of dawn, yelling “WAKE UP GUYS, IT’S GOOD MORNING TIME!” Sleeping late is usually a sure-fire indicator that she doesn’t feel well.
We kept Namine home from school yesterday due to a fever. Because she can’t go to school until 24 hours after a fever, we’ll be keeping her home today as well. We took her temp before bed last night, and it looked like it was going down. Hopefully she’ll be able to go to school tomorrow.
When Namine drops her sats, our immediate thought is that she’s getting sick. Well, she’s already sick, so it would be no surprise that her sats are down a little. But Namine was down to 81 this morning, and that’s frightening. To make matters worse, Namine woke up with the croup again.
Namine has another ear infection. So once again, she’s on ear drops – though this time, it’s her right ear that’s infected. It must not be as painful as the last time. Namine hasn’t complained of her ear hurting; Jessica noticed some drainage, so she took her in to see the pediatrician.
Today marks the second day that Namine will have been kept home from school. Little kids being what they are (petri dishes for sickness), we can’t send Namine off to school with a fever, which she’s had for two days now. Lots of rest are in order, and she should be feeling fine for school next week.
