update

Fever is lower today (99-102, but mostly on the lower side of that range) and he's acting more like himself, so hopefully we're moving in the right direction. We had a terrible experience in the ER: Multiple failed attempts to catheterize him for a urine sample (before giving up completely), multiple failed attempts to place an IV (before giving up completely), rough blood draw and finger-stick, urine collection bag taped all over (and subsequently removed from - ouch) his most sensitive areas... I'm really disappointed given that we drove past closer ERs in order to go to the childrens' hospital. I was kind of hoping for more kid-friendly care. Anyway, it's behind us now and we hopefully won't be back any time soon. Thanks for thinking of us and wishing E well.

I am sorry you had a bad expereince. It doesn't help when you are already scared. I am so glad the fever has come down and he is acting more like himself. I hope the good news keeps coming.

Scary enough, without the rough care. So glad he's on the mend.

How awful! There is nothing worse than seeing your baby being poked and prodded. Hoping his fever continues to drop.
