In Which We Go To The Hospital Again

Well, it was another fun-filled day at the hospital yesterday.  Connor continued to run a fever despite being on heavy-duty antibiotics for three days, so evidently there was something else going on.  I thought that maybe he'd caught a cold on top of the strep, as he started getting pretty congested on Sunday.  I tried taking him off the Tylenol early in the day and his temperature began to rise.  Then he had a couple of quick seizures, so I put him back on the stuff and we were off to the doctor's office again. 

Connor's doctor wanted some more tests run to see what could be going on as the little guy has had a fever off and on since November 22nd or so, but they couldn't do the tests in the office.  So she sent us to the ER yet again-- this time the on-post hospital.  I like to avoid going there unless I absolutely have to because of the long waiting times, and yesterday was no exception.  We waited for about four hours before going back to see a doctor.  Connor snoozed on my chest.

So they did another urinalysis, took a chest x-ray, tested him for mono, checked his temperature, which had come down, and announced that they didn't know what the issue was and we could go home.  We got back to the house around midnight.  Fun times.

I'm still thinking that the back-to-back-to-back fevers were coincidence and that the little guy just has a viral infection on top of the strep.  We'll see what the doctor wants to do today; hopefully his temperature will stay down today and that will be the end of it.  I'm getting kind of tired of the hospital.
