Admitted (Part 2)

It has been a rough few weeks at the Nelson house! Last Friday Ella had all the symptoms of a "bug," but it didn't go away in 24-48 hours like one would expect. I took her to the doctor on Tuesday and when I saw the look on the doctors face I knew it wasn't good. She was running a fever, dehydrated and had severe abdominal pain. The doctor sent us to the hospital for a STAT CT scan and chest xray. He wanted to make sure she didn't have appendicitis, which thankfully she didn't. She did however have a "nasty" pneumonia (to put it in the words of Dr. Goliath). So, she was admitted and we spent THREE nights in the hospital. My first question was "Did she get it from Evie?" and apparently she didn't. Pneumonia itself is not contagious... Go figure! We came home on Friday and she is doing much better and is allowed to go back to school tomorrow!

Poor baby, she felt like CRAP!

She had lots of visitors and got flowers and balloons that made her smile! Starting to feel much better!

My prayer is that I don't have an "Admitted (Part 3)"!
