We've had such a time with your health lately that it reminds me how thankful I am for you and your general good health. You started running a low grade fever last Monday, and had no appetite at all. We thought it was just that nasty teething (you got another one-- I thought you already had all 20!). But Wednesday it got up to 101.3 and I got concerned so I called your doctor's office. The nurse assured me that there were a lot of bugs going around. She warned me if you got worse or you started to vomit to bring you in.

The doctor ordered a throat culture (negative) a chest xray (indicating bronchitis) and a straight catheter urine collection (thank God for pediatric nurses) which was positive for a UTI. The fever, malaise, and lack of appetite suddenly made sense. You had an infection all along. We got to go home at 5 am with an antibiotic. We went to grammy's to camp out so that you could have your grammy and your personal RN--aunt Tay. You area lucky little lady.
The next day you woke up with 102.9 and were shivering like mad. I called your pediatrician to follow up and they wanted to see you right away. You were not excited to return to a doctor's office. You screamed through the check and especially the shot of antibiotics.
They asked me to bring you in again the next day. You got another antibiotic shot and an appointment for a kidney sonogram and blood panel.
