View Full Version : Kasha is sick NO MORE!

She has had fever and abdominal pain for 2 or 3 days. The kids took her to the hospital yesterday and they ruled out UTI, appendicitis and strep, (which her Mommy had for a week previous to Kasha getting sick). They sent them home last evening, and she had some diarrhea overnight. My daughter wasn't sure if it was bloody, or pink from something they had given her to drink yesterday.

They returned to the hospital about noon today. That is all I know.

Please pray for my munchkin and for her parents and for me. I feel so totally helpless and am so far away, can't do anything for either Kasha or her parents.

They are home again from the hospital. Blood work is normal, and doctor thinks it is just some infection that should clear up in a couple of days.

They are to do a stool sample at home so the doc can check for parasites. And if the pain gets worse they are to go back to the hospital, and if the pain isn't gone by Monday they are to go back to the hospital.

So now they are just trying to keep the fever down and monitor her pain.

That's all I know.

Thank you all for your prayers.

There is no change as of this morning, except that her stool is a more normal colour. The doc said it was definitely blood, but may be due to infection inflammation. Sample was taken in on Friday afternoon, but they likely won't hear anything over the weekend.

I expect she will back at hospital tomorrow if there is still no change by then.

She is in considerable pain in her navel area, and her fever is running around 100.

Her own doctor is there today, and is pretty sure it is some kind of infection. She has ordered xrays and is calling a pediatrician to see if there are more tests that should be done.

I am encouraged by 2 doctors saying it is likely an infection of some sort. I just wish I could take it away for her and for my daughter.

mossrose
02-23-2014, 04:01 PM
Xrays show distention of the intestines in a couple of places, probably due to an infection.

They have placed her on iv for fluids and are going to keep her overnight. I wish they had done that on Thursday! Maybe by now they would have a handle on the whole thing!

We just a few minutes ago found out it is salmonella.

Keeping her overnight again, and continuing with fluids. Don't know if they are treating her in any other way, haven't heard. I am so relieved it is not more serious, and she will likely be on the mend very soon.

Thanks for your love and prayers.

She's on antibiotics and there is no more blood in her stool, but her fever is higher tonight than it has been all week. At least in the hospital they will be watching her closely.

I am hoping she will be well enough to go home tomorrow. Poor little thing.

They couldn't have figured it out earlier? You'd think food poisoning pathogens would be one of the things they'd screen for! Hope everyone washed their hands well...

mossrose
02-25-2014, 06:27 AM
Yes, they were horribly slow with the diagnosis. If they had kept her last Thursday instead of sending her home, and again on Friday, she would be that much closer now to being better.

But I know salmonella is common and especially among children, and that recovery is usual. We are thankful beyond words that it isn't more serious.

Latest update from my daughter.


She's doing a bit better! It's been five hours since she's had Advil and her temperature seems to be staying down.
She may have to stay one more night, she has to be completely fever free for 24 hours before she can go home.

Fever is more under control. She has had 5 bouts of diarrhea within the last 24 hours, and the doctor doesn't like that, is afraid that off the iv she won't be getting enough fluids.

So looks like she will be in all day today, and maybe overnight again. She has to be 24 hours fever free before they send her home. And I guess more diarrhea free as well.

She's actually been very good, holding still when they draw blood and inserted the iv, etc. She is just really bad about taking medicine, which is nothing new with her. My daughter said sometimes it takes 45 minutes to get it down. Hopefully she's figured out that being really ill and being in the hospital is no fun and will change her ways.

mossrose
02-26-2014, 06:09 PM
Just had FaceTime with her. She is much more active than a couple of nights ago, but looks like she has been very sick.

:frown:

She has to stay tonight, but the odds are very good she will be sent home tomorrow. She has had no fever meds since 9:30 last night, and her diarrhea is down to about once every 12 hours, so one more night and she will be good enough to send home.

Thanks for your prayers and love and support. As always.

mossrose
02-26-2014, 06:30 PM
She has been quite ill, so until today wasn't doing much of anything. She did colouring today, and played some games, and trekked up and down the halls, and probably delighted everyone she met along the way.

Or maybe that's just my opinion.

Apparently I am remiss for not sending her any mail in the last 2 weeks. She gave me quite a dressing down, so there will be a letter with some stickers and other goodies heading out tomorrow.

Update today from my daughter:


So Kasha's salmonella has come from the sub-species Enterica [i] 4,5,12:i-
which is most commonly found in snakes and feeder mice for snakes. It could also be found in some other reptiles, like our underwater frog. So the health inspector is going to try and get ahold of me to get a sample of the frog's water to see if that's the culprit. I guess an older lady in town had the same thing a while ago and she got it from her corn snake.

Kasha is still having cramps occasionally and a slight fever at times. The doctor has said the poisoning will have to run it's course. The doctor has also told my daughter that she has never seen a child so sick since she started her doctoring.

We are SO thankful my munchkin is well on her way to being herself again and pray they will find the source and remove it from their home.

She is just fine! All symptoms gone for quite some time.

Froggy is gone, and although we haven't heard back from Health Services, we are pretty sure that is the only thing that could have caused the problem. They did come and take a sample of the water, but that was a while ago. And there haven't been any reports of anyone else being sick in that area, so it seems to be an isolated case.

Thanks for asking, CP.

Last time I went berry picking (a long time ago) in the woods around where we lived at the time, my family and I ate more blackberries than we brought home. As soon as we got home we ate the rest. It was awesome.

Shortly after that we had a fair bit of land and planted some cultivated thornless blackberry and blueberry bushes, but the output of those was never anywhere near as high as the wild ones nearby.

It irks me, because they seem to rely on the kindness of strangers to shovel their sidewalk along the boulevard, so theirs is always a mess where it joins mine. I do most of the snow shovelling at my house, and sorry, I have enough to do without doing theirs, too, so I don't.

They have a son who lives in town, and I might see him twice during the winter when they are gone. I don't know how they are getting around the bylaw that states that you are required to have someone check your home every 48 hours during the winter if you are gone due to danger of frozen and cracked water lines.

Maybe they leave all their faucets dripping and the thermostat cranked up?

They probably winterize - they drain the plumbing completely and shut off the supply at the meter. Anything that has to have water in it has antifreeze added.

In Alabama. we only do this for houses that are on the market excessively long or if winter is likely to be harder than usual and the house will be unoccupied.

I don't think around here you can add antifreeze to your water pipes.

But, I could be wrong. I just know the bylaw states you have to have someone check the house inside every 48 hours.

Not to water pipes - those are drained. Tank systems that must remain wet use an approved antifreeze - I honestly have never seen such a system. :shrug:


Oh, and it's RAINING here!!!! :woohoo:

I've never heard of that sort of system here, either!

And we could use some rain!

Please!

We had a thunderstorm last night. It woke me up but RG slept right through it.

And our daytime temps have been in the 60's. The locals complain about the "heat" if it gets above 70F/20C.

Kasha is not sick, but she has an appointment with a paediatric specialist this afternoon.

She has always, since a wee girl, had constipation. Nothing seems to remedy this, and the family doc wants to have her checked by this man who does nothing but deal with this sort of thing in children.

The biggest problem the kids have found regarding this is that during the night, Kasha has no sensation of having to urinate, so without a Pull-up, she will wet the bed. Even during the day she has to be reminded to go pee.

The theory is that the full bowel prevents her from feeling a full bladder.

We do not expect there to be anything serious taking place, but prayers for some solutions would be appreciated.

My niece has a similar problem which she inherited from her mother and seems to have passed down to her daughter (although no way nearly as severe). :pray:

Yeah. Kasha's cousin who is 8 still wets the bed, and apparently my s-i-l had issues past 10, so there could definitely be a genetic issue there.

What is Kasha's fiber intake (soluble and insoluble)?

mossrose
07-31-2014, 03:36 PM
She eats a lot of fiber. Lots of fruit and veg and other fiber rich stuff. That has never been a problem with her.

Result is that her bladder has not developed as much as it should because of the full bowel all the time. More fiber, more liquids, more stool softener, and the more liquid is to make the bladder stretch more as much as to help with the bowel movements.

Nothing serious, this doc sees this all the time. I am greatly encouraged. Don't know how my daughter feels as all she did was email me the doctor's report.

Which was full of spelling and grammatical errors, btw, which makes me nervous, but maybe that was his transcriber.

Thanks for prayers, guys! There will be work to do to get this girl "going"!
