On Saturday we were off and running to a training meeting for Marty, he is preparing for his big summer trip to the 2013 Scout Jamboree. Noodle tagged along but by midday when was complaining of a headache and a tummy ache. Afterwards she sacked out on the couch and relaxed. On Sunday morning she had an normally high temperature and we decided to take her to the doctor.
The Doc looked her over and ran some blood tests and even checked her foot out. Her fever and tummy ache were the main problems so Motrin and Tylenol were prescribed. As to the foot, even after the x-ray, the doc thought as we did a heel bruise. That was Sunday. Monday about mid-day the Doc calls back and explains they have a problem with the blood samples. They believe they have contaminated them and want to run another set. Back to the Doctors they go and another set of blood tests are taken. While there the Doc brushes again her foot and Noodle winches. The Doc takes another look.

Unfortunately since the infection is actually in the bone it means a course of antibiotics My brave girl had a PICC line installed and will be receiving her antibiotics at home for about 8 weeks. The good news is that she is doing better and as I write this she is watching Marley and Me in her hospital room.
With luck we will have her back home by Monday or Tuesday. She's having to miss school and missed her 5th grade trip but she is doing great. While on the school trip the class took time to send her a little message.
