  • Really Sick

    OMG! My neighbor and really good friend just came by my house. Her 2 year old son Hayden is in the hospital with a 106 degree fever! They said his white blood cell count is elevated and he has fluid in his abdomen. Her doctor is telling her it's not life threatening but a fever that high in a 2 year old scares the crap out of me. Their family is going through so much, Jess (my friend) her grandmother was just diagnoised with pancriotic (sp?) cancer last week, just got home from the hospital and now Hayden is in.
    I still can't get over this, esp since she took him to the dr on Monday because this 106 fever started Sunday and they told her that it seemed like he had an ear infection and if he wasn't better by friday they wanted to see him back. That sounds crazy to me. I really hope they are okay. Keep them in your thoughts.

    I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
    1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
    2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
    I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

    I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

      Oooh that's scary! I babysat a little girl when I was 14 (would NEVER let a 14yr old ever babysit my future kids by the way)...... and the girl was 3yrs old and acting lethargic because she wasn't playing and just wanted to lay down and watch tv in the middle of the day, which was really out of character for her.... so I picked her up and took her temperature with an oral, digital thermometer.... well once it kept on slowly climbing above 100, I immediatly called my mom (who is a nurse and also the neighbor of the lady I was babysiting for, thankfully) and while I was on the phone with her, Taylor's temperature reached 105!!!!!!!!!!!!!! craziness, when I think about it now! I gave her tylenol, and put her in a luke warm bath and called her mom to come... memories... the sucky thing with Taylor was that she had some type of epilepsy that was induced by high fevers which made me even more paranoid but luckily she didn't have one that day because I caught it quick... (or as quick as you could, considering that Taylor was perky and healthy when her mom left like an hour earlier!)
      current meds:
      cytotec 200mcg twice daily
      toprol
      allegra

      ONLY 3 MEDICATIONS!!! YAY! Would never have dreamed this is possible

      dx: hashimoto's thyroiditis 1998
      dx: interstitial cystitis via cystoscopy with hydrodistention and biopsy 2003
      dx: endometriosis 2003
      dx: innapropriate sinus tacchicardia 2005

      meds tried but failed:
      elavil (6months)- severe tachycardia
      elmiron (1yr6mo.)- no improvement, nausea, hair loss, stomach ulcers
      a bunch of others

          Many prayers for this little boy. I hope it's nothing serious and that he is home soon. How scary for his mom.

            Children seem to be able to tolerate high fevers much easier than adults, but 106 is still too high to feel comfortable with it. I hope they're taking steps to reduce it.

              Thanks everybody. I still can't get over that dr, what an idiot, she said it wasn't her normal dr. I think with a fever that high I would have skipped the dr and gone right to the ER in the first place. I'm guessing she probably spent the night at the hospital so I have no idea when I'll get to hear what's going on. Hopefully tonight when I get home from work.

                I agree with you guys! I would be so scared, I'd camping out with Collin at the ER until it came down, LITERALLY! I cant imagine his Dr. not being as alarmed as we are! Prayers for him and his mother. I hope it passes soon and he is okay.

                  I sure hope the baby starts feeling better soon. I remember how scary those high fevers are. My daughter (her name is Taylor to lol earlier post) any way she has problems with ear infections and when she would get one she would run a really high fever. I had her in the emerg. room one time for a 105 fever and they were not that concern. She would run them alot like that. They told me to undress her so that she would not be bundle up. When I was growing up I had the flu real bad once and I remember not being able to get it down so they dumped me in a bath tub with ice BURRR!!!! I dont think they do that anymore. I also had a seizure once with a high fever I cant spell the name..But I also remember when my dad was in the hospital this last time and he had a high fever and they packed ice around him to get it down.
                  God grant me the serinity to withstand the days ahead!!!

                      No Cindy, they didn't, she had just taken him to the hospital sometime yesterday so they were running lots of test. Throat culture, blood work, they even had to cath him to get a urine sample, poor little guy, now he's in pain when he pees. Hopefully I'll hear something from her when I get home from work.
