Poor Katelyn...And Not One of the Highlights of the Trip!
Whenever we come to Salt Lake for a visit, at least one of my kids gets sick. This time was Katelyn's turn. She woke in the night on Monday with a fever. Luckily, I have learned to carry Tylenol or Motrin with me at all times. Her fever continued on through Tuesday. She was very clingy and pretty much sat on my lap the whole day. Her lowest temp was just over 102 and her highest was nearly 104. My dad told me I should take her to an urgent care but I thought a good nights rest would solve the problem. Wrong! As soon as my head hit the pillow around 10:00, she woke up with her highest temperature. Unfortunately all the urgent care places had just closed, so I decided to just take her to the ER. We have now done this with all three of our kids for one reason or another. It was after ten and I knew I would be there for at least a couple of hours. I knew it would be a long night. The doctor found an ear infection in each ear and dosed her up with pain relief and antibiotic. They even put numbing drops in her ear to help with pain. She slept good after all that and has been acting much better! Just another adventure while on our trip!
