Malaria

 Thursday nikki took her Malaria pill. They have to take them just incase. Nikki did not feel good Thursday, but the pills always make her feel bad.

Friday Nikki went to a pool party and she called me and said "mom I need to go to the hospital". That is so not like Nikki.

Earlier in the week my girlfriend had borrowed my car, so I did not have a car. I got my stuff together. Amber was out with Sam, so I called her and told her to come, so that she could stay with Ryan. I was headed out the door to borrow another neighbors car, when Chris walked in and asked me what was going on. I told him and he threw me the keys to his car.

I get to the hospital and the e.r. is packed. They did a complete lab and urine test on her. Nothing came up. No malaria, no nothing. They did however give us some stuff to stop her from vomiting.

Saturday even with the medicine she was still vomiting. Now we are going 48 hours of being able to hold nothing down.

Nikki was so sick. Nikki even slept with Rusty and I.... that is when she finally got some sleep.

I told Rusty that if she was not holding stuff down by Sunday morning that I was taking her back to the hospital and having them drop a line in her.

Around 2 a.m. Nikki sat up in bed and said " mom I feel great!" Nikki did sleep a lot today, but she is holding down fluids and a little bit of food.

Rusty and I have decided not to give her the rest of her Malaria pills. The doctor at the E.R. said that she did not have malaria and that it was most likely the pills making her sick.

I have not gotten much sleep over the last few days, so tonight I am looking forward to a nice long bath and some sleep. I am going to sleep until I can't sleep anymore.

On a good note, Kevin knew I was having a bad weekend so we went and bought the frame for my hammock! Yes, I an finally use my hammock. That will have to wait until tomorrow.

Sorry for not commenting this weekend. I have just been so busy and worn out!

I am glad Nikki started getting better.  I was here, but I was getting worried about her.  Yes, I believe you do need sleep.  I am glad that you are going to be able to use your hammock.  That should give you a lift.  Gerry
