Boy did I have a rough night. I was in the emergency room from 9 pm to 4 am, with my 2 month old Ethan. He was running a high fever so I had to take him in. His blood test were okay, but he had a high white blood cell count in his urine. The culture results will be in tomorrow. The peditrican said that it probably is just a virus but there is a slim chance he might have under developed kidneys or a block in his urine stream causing the urine to go back up inside and causing an infection. So far the culture hasn't grown anything, so I hope it is just a virus. Today was also the news interview it is going to air tonight at six. I probably look like I felt...A massive train wreck. Like my mom told me last night,welcome to motherhood. Hopefully everyone elses night was better than mine. I also hope Ethan is fine and he gets better asap. Thanks for letting me vent.

Awww, poor little Ethan! Heck, poor Mom! Figures that the day after you spend all night in the E.R. is the day that you have your television debut!

I hope the little guy is alright!

I was you a week ago.

CJ had a virus that made him puke so much he dehydrated.

Hugs to you both, I know it's rough. I hope it's just viral too, keep us posted.

I hope Ethan's test results come back fine! I had to take my dd in when she was 2 mo. b/c of a high fever. They did all kinds of tests on her...even a spinal tap. I will never forget that night! Turns out she had kidney reflux, kind of what you were saying. She now 2 yrs. and it has gotten better. Hopefully she will outgrow this!

I hope everything comes back okay! We will be praying for Ethan to get better!
