Last night, David took Eli to the emergency room because his temporal temperature was 104.4. He has had fever since Sunday evening, but we've managed it with over-the-couter meds. Each time the med wears off, the fever was higher and then, last night, the number became alarming. Eli was sent home with a diagnosis of pneumonia and an antibiotic.
Tonight, the charge nurse from the ER called to say that we needed to bring Eli back in because his blood culture was positive for something. I asked positive for what. She was sketchy. I asked her if Eli would be admitted to the hospital and she said possibly, but that the pediatrician on call said he needed to be seen and have his white blood count measured.
Pray for Eli, please.
