Here's the update on everything from Trace's stay at CMHH and the past few days. Sunday, Jan 27, Trace seemed a little run down, had a slight cough and chest congestion. Seemed to be the same illness he had just recovered from in December. He spiked a fever Sunday evening about 6:30. Ran fever all through the night, despite ibuprofen. Monday AM I called the pediatrician and set up an appointment for that afternoon thinking it could be handled like the last illness. Trace seemed to be going downhill really fast by late morning. By 10:01 AM I emailed the Mito Clinic nurse and asked what Dr. K thinks. At 10:07 AM she responded with ER Now!! The 6 minutes in between those 2 emails were one of the scariest moments of my life with Trace. And I have to say I don't scare easily anymore. I was already getting things together for the ER, as I figured they would send me there due to the fact I couldn't get the fever down and it seemed to keep creeping higher. I stood Trace beside me to grab some things from the bathroom cabinet, when he collapsed and had a terrible tonic clonic seizure. I was able to catch him before he hit the ground, his entire body convulsed the worse I've seen in years. Once it stopped he was unable to hold up his head, stand or even open his eyes for more than 2 seconds. This postictal state lasted almost 2 hours. Not exactly a fun drive to CMHH.
Only Trace can rock the mis-matched jams this well!
