Not really in a writing mood, but please pray for Noah.
On Friday he began to have a fever.
On Saturday we took him to urgent care because it had gotten up to 104.7
He looked okay to the Dr there and we were told sometimes fevers went that high
On Sunday it went up to 105.
Monday we went to our Dr who ordered blood work and urine tests and asked to see him again the next day.
Monday night he called to tell us that Noah had a UTI and we went to pick up some antibiotics for him.
He was not happy with the medicine and threw it up :(
Tuesday morning (today) his fever had gone down to the 101-102 range. He was much more active and looking very well. I was expecting a clean report from the Dr.
However, he told us that a UTI should not produce such a high fever and that the infection was probably somewhere else. (In juggling around four kids I didn't catch if he thought the infection spread from another place or to another place)
He is concerned that it is possibly in his kidneys and listed a number of causes/reasons that I can not remember. (Max was not at his best this visit and it was a little hard to focus)
The next step is to try to get the fever down with the use of the antibiotics and then to have an ultrasound and some other test (scheduled for next Thursday).
He seems just fine...but something obviously isn't okay inside his little body.
Please pray for little Noah. He is our little love.
We love you, little one!
