Mattie was suppose to have her first Preschool swim lesson on Wednesday, but instead spent the day in bed with a fever. It started on Tuesday evening, I called Matt from our Relief Society pool party to make sure Mattie had woken up from the late nap she took. He told me that she had thrown up right after she woke up. I thought maybe she had swallowed too much salt water at the beach that day, but that wasn't the case. She proceeded to throw up all night long. She couldn't keep anything down for hours. She finally was able to keep down some ginger ale, which thankfully I had on hand for my prego sickness! Matt left early to go to work, and I continued to take care of a very sick Mattie. I ran to Walgreens to get some Gatorade and Children's Tylenol (which she threw up). On the way home from Walgreens it hits me that I need to have her urine tested, because of her hydronephrosis. For those that don't know, its a kidney disorder that she has. Her left kidney still retains fluid, but is getting better as she gets older. Anyway, when she was 6 weeks old, she was super sick with vomiting and a high fever. I had to take her to the hospital for lots of testing, and that's when we found out that she had a UTI. Its a long story! Anyway, her Nephrologist told us that whenever she has a prolonged fever we need to check her urine for a UTI. If she has a UTI that goes untreated it could damage her kidneys. So, I called the DR and they got her right in for a check. Thankfully her urine was clean of infection, and she just had a nasty stomach bug. She rested a lot,but fought a fever on and off all day long. She had a good night but is still a little down this morning. So, next Monday will be the next Swim Lesson and she'll get to try swimming with the bigger kids! I'll post about how she did, with some pictures of our little fish!
