We took her to Kosairs to get tested. With babies it could be nothing but it could be Meningitis. We arrived at the ER around 1pm and Addie went through all kinds of tests. They did admit us to a room by 9pm. Wow, I am so thankful Matt could be there with me. It was hard seeing them poke and prod her. Matt went with her to get her spinal tap. All the preliminary tests came back clear but they told us we would have to stay for 48 hours to get the results of the blood and spinal culture.
Her initial blood culture showed bacteria growth-very bad. But they said that they couldn't tell whether it was a contaminate (something had gotten into the culture) or a staff bacteria. Praise the Lord it was a contaminate and her second culture came back fine. We were able to come home Saturday.
The Lord is so good. He was there with Addie and Matt and I. As parents it is so difficult to see your child hurting and not be able to help them . Of course the best help you can offer your child is prayer. God was there comforting Matt and I and truly gave me a peace about her tests. Thank you for all your prayers. Those who were able to come see us in the hospital were a blessing. It is so lonely sitting there all day with your child. I really appreciated all the calls and visits.
