Kaylee is sick

It all started early Sunday morning while Kaylee was spending the night with Gracie Beth.  Mrs. Andrea said that she got up at 5 am and said that she was thirsty when she was getting her something to drink she felt of her and she was burning up with fever like 102 to be exact she gave her Tylenol and Kaylee slept a couple of hours before coming home.  When she got here I could tell she felt horrible; her little eyes were swollen and she was really snotty.  She slept most of the day and her fever never went back up.  We thought she just had a bad cold from playing in the snow and then playing basketball and getting hot.  Sunday night she seemed so much better and off to school she went Monday morning seeming to be ok.  She said Monday afternoon that she felt a lot better.  {I think because she knew she had b-ball practice and I told her she couldn't practice unless she was better}  Monday night she went to bed at normal bedtime and woke up Tuesday morning at 3am and NEVER went back to sleep.  She said she just couldn't sleep.  I thought well her little body is just off schedule.  So Tuesday around 11:45 I get a call and it is Mrs. Pitts Kaylee's teacher.  She said, "Holli, Kaylee is sound to sleep on her desk.  We was in the middle of handwriting and I looked over and she was out!  She almost fell asleep doing her AR this morning and said that she didn't sleep well last night."  Of course I freaked out that is not like Kaylee at all.  Mrs. Pitts went on to say that they had just finished lunch and they were fixing to go to the library but she was going to keep Kaylee in there with her and let her sleep and then she would wake her up after library and take her temp.  I was ok with that but hated that she feel asleep in class!  She called me a little while later and said that she woke up and didn't have a temp and Kaylee said that she felt better.  So the rest of the day I was so worried about her.  When I got home I could tell she still wasn't herself and thankfully it was Dr. Womble's late night.  She saw her and immediately ran the flu test.  That came back negative {thank goodness} and then she ran a few more test.  She came back in a short while later and said that Kaylee had a very serious sinus infection.  She said that her little sinus cavities where so impacted that she didn't see how the child was even breathing!  Needless to say she put her on a high powered antibiotic and several other meds and said that she could not go back to school until Thursday.  Also her temp had spiked to 101 when we got there.  Dr. Womble said if I saw no improvement by Friday to bring her back and may have to go a different route like the ear, nose and throat Dr. So today she stayed at home with Kris and got breakfast and lunch in bed.  She looks so much better today already.  Hopefully she will be able to go back to school tomorrow and get back on track.
While we are talking about Kaylee I should mention that she has one more basketball game this Saturday and then softball practice starts 30 minutes later!  The one good thing about softball starting is spring and summer are just right around the corner!
