Yesterday on a walk down Fillmore a fever that I thought Phoebe would be able to work through spiked suddenly and she started seizing. Her sisters watched as she turned blue and I had 911 called. As the seconds of her not breathing ticked by, well, I cannot even write what I was fearing may happen.
She came out of it just as the ambulance arrived. They stripped her clothes, got oxygen on her and checked all her vitals. A friend magically appeared and whisked my older girls home with her while I traveled with Phoebe in the ambulance to the emergency room.
There were no obvious signs of what was causing the fever. They treated it with Motrin checked everything out and let me know there may be more seizures.
Half awake all night I worked to keep her little body cool. She threw up any medicine I had. Luke warm baths, cool washcloths, nursing and no blankets were my only tools. Just as I was about to send Erin out for a fever reducer we fell asleep.
I awoke at 6 with her seizing again. This time much calmer than the one before. I sent Erin to the store and finally I had a fever reducer I could get her to take and slowly her temperature came down and stayed down.
She has been stable all day and is asleep now. I am hoping for a nice cool night for this little one.
Thank you Phoebe for staying with me.
