My Poor Little Girl

It all started with a trip to the pediatrician because Juliette felt warm and was just not acting like herself and ended up with a trip to the ER and a six day stay in the hospital.

Juliette had a 104 degree temperature and the Dr's couldn't figure out where it was coming from. We finally found out that she had a really bad Kidney Infection. I spent the next 5 days in the hospital with her waiting for her temperature to come down. She will still need more tests to find out what caused the infection in the first place, they think it might be a result of reflux.
The radiologist originally saw a blockage in the kidney that he said was a congenital defect, after the third ultrasound they did not see it anymore and he had no explanation as to where it went. All I could do was thank God!!

As I was sitting in the hospital waiting it put so many things into perspective for me. I am blessed with so many things in my life that I take for granted. I realized I would trade all the material things I had at that moment just for Juliette to be well again. I am so grateful for all that God has blessed me with and plan on enjoying every moment that I have together with them.

Michelle, It is so heartbreaking to see them sick and scary to see them hooked up to wires. My son had a high temp at 10 days so into the hospital for tests, medicine and procedures. They diagnosed a UTI and likely kidney infection too. No reflux thankfully and we never had a repeat incident. I'm so happy to hear your little one is cleared of her infection and no reflux!

Sheena said...

Oh, that is so sad. I'm glad she's okay though and I hope they figure out what caused it so it doesn't happen again.

Raising a Happy Child said...

I was wondering what happened to you. I am sorry about the ordeal that you went through, and I so hope that there will be no repeat ever again. (((Hugs))), and I hope Juliette will be back to normal quickly.

Melissa said...

Oh thank goodness sweet Juliette is ok! I know exactly how you felt, sitting there, waiting, and just hoping and praying that everything would be fine. (One of my kiddos was born w/a congenital heart defect.) I hope that her docs will be able to pinpoint the cause of her infection, and be able to treat her so it doesn't come back. Keeping your family in my prayers!!

Donette said...

Am so glad that Juliette is ok! Praise God! He is awesome!

Denise said...

I'm sorry to hear about Juliette's illness but I am so grateful that she is OK. I'll keep her in my prayers.

April said...

I am so glad that everything is OK. When my daughter was 2 mos old she got a kidney infection as well. We were all so miserable in the hospital. I have a similar pic of her as well where her arm is all strapped up to keep her from pulling at the IV. Thank God everything is okay!

Jen said...

When I didn't see any new posts from you, I wondered if everyone was ok. I'm glad she is healing. Take care and stay well, Juliette!
