Ipsey Posted August 16, 2012 Share Posted August 16, 2012 DD was sick on Sunday--sick enough that she didn't participate in the final performance of her musical performance on Sunday. (She didn't have a large role, so she could skip out, but it was a BIG, AWESOME production, and she was sad to miss it.) She was just tired and said her tummy hurt. She just lies around, sometimes wants music or stories, but sometimes just wants to be alone and rest. Complained of headache and belly ache. I made sure it wasn't appendicitis, as best as I could. She doesn't have a headache any more, but just generalized belly ache that gets better and worse. This morning, had an appointment for her. WBC were not elevated. No fever. Dr. checked all sorts of ways for appendicitis (no scan though) I hope that's not it. Her monocytes (sp?) were elevated though, so he thought that might be a sign of mono, but he also said they didn't typically test for mono until 7 days after symptoms started. Negative for strep. I don't know. I'm worried. She's just tired all the time. She'll drink gatorade and eat light meals. We did get up and run some errands today, and she did alright, but came home and crashed. Her belly ache during errands was 3, but 6 now. Thoughts? When I called her to dinner tonight, her eyes filled with tears at the table and she said she just wanted to go lie back down. Very sad Mama.
