we're back...

In the hospital! Can you believe it!? I can't!... but it's okay.

For the last few days Evie's soft spot was bulging a little more, and she had a few little seizures this morning... she had a fever Saturday Sunday Monday, and a rash Tuesday and today... so I figured she was maybe having a little seizure activity due to being sick... but they got more frequent this afternoon, and since her fontenelle has been bulging so much more we were advised by her doctors to bring her to the ER at Children's.

They have done blood work, urine, a repeat CT and a spinal tap to check for meningitis and other infections. Her CT came back normal (well normal for her, yay!) but with the bulging soft spot they are going to try to move her surgery sooner. Why not throw it inbetween the my older sister's baby and my little sister's wedding eh? (Just kidding mom!)

Regardless we will be here for at least 48 hours to wait for the meningitis culture to come back. It's Lyla's birthday, and we had birthday pancakes this morning and played until John got home, and he took her to the zoo so I could bring Evie in. I think she had a great day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEST FRIEND! I love you more than the sun and the moon (: I'm gonna snuddle you as long as you let me, and when you don't I'll just sneak in when you're sleeping!!!

I will update soon, pray that everything comes back negative and that she gets some good sleep tonight.

Love you friends (:
