What’s Up With Will
As most of you know we ended up in the Emergency Room with Will last night. Here’s a brief synopsis of what happened (copied from an email I just sent a friend):
“Well, we ended up having a scary night! We got to the dr. office and they sent us to the ER because they thought that Will had had a seizure.
So, we were at the ER for several hours and they did a lot of bloodwork/XRays/IV/urine tests. But everything they checked at the hospital came back pretty normal – he had elevated while blood count but that was probably due to the high fever.
We got released and had to drive to COLUMBIA to get an anti-seizure medicine. We got home about midnight and he started shaking again. So, we called our dr. and he then said that it might not be a seizure since he was alert when it happened.
Will woke up this morning with a 102 fever again but it has gone down with Tylenol – so I am headed to the store for more Tylenol so we can keep the fever down!”
So, at this point we are trying to control his fever(when the medicine starts wearing off his temp. goes back up) , he is eating and drinking like normal and seems to be doing ok. We go to see his pediatrician tomorrow morning at 8:45.
