One sick kid

Sydney has not been herself....

Her normally bubbly personality is gone....

Her dancing has stopped-{gasp}

She has had a fever of 103+ for 10 days

But no other symptoms!?!?!?!?!?

So it was off to the doctor,
(who sent us to get blood work)

The results:

Lyme's Disease
Epstein Barr
Strep virus in her blood (not strep throat)
Protein in her urine

She is one sick kid!

We are still waiting on her final blood culture and urine culture. For now she is on a heavy duty antibiotic, and Tylenol/Motrin every 4 hours.  If things don't improve, she will be admitted into the hospital.  We were told to make sure she gets plenty of rest, which has been a cinch since she hasn't moved out of bed or off the couch for almost 10 days.  She also needs to drink plenty of fluids-Gatorade is her new BFF.

~~If you pray, please include
SYDNEY in yours
She needs all the help she can get right now~~
