We went to her pediatrician's office. Megan had a breathing treatment while her doctor called 911. She got her first ambulance ride and hopefully her last! Several tests were ran and lots of meds were pumped into my little baby. Little by little she improved.I'm overjoyed to have my Meggies feeling normal again. The overnight stay in the hospital was bittersweet. As much as I don't want my baby feeling ill, I enjoyed the alone time I had with her. I was ALL hers and there weren't any siblings competing for mommy's attention. No interuptions. Just quiet time to hold her and rock her and sing to her. It made me fall in love with my little girl all over again.
By morning, she did a complete turnaround. She woke up singing nursery rhymes to herself and talking the nurses' ears off. They fell in love with her too. We learned that she is now allergic to Amoxicillin. The doctor overseeing her care said it was one on of the worst allergic reactions he has ever seen. He called it Serum Sickness. He said that the burping and the tummy aches was because everything she was experiencing on the outside was also going on in the inside of her. In other words, her whole GI tract was swollen too!
Thank you Lord, Jesus for keeping my baby safe!!! Thank you everyone for all of the prayers that were said. Thank you Mimi, Alarick, and Brandon for the big pink bear (Megan named it: Big Pink Bear) and the balloons. She kept telling the nurses that it was her birthday party because she had balloons. Thank you Uncle Rigo and Auntie Aracely for visiting her in the hospital. Thank you Smith's for watching the kids. Thank you mom and Lety for keeping me sane! I have such an amazing support group. Megan smiling waiting to go home.
