Worrying Times

Just a short blog to let you know why I've not been blogging for a couple of days. Daughter No1 text me Tuesday evening before I started my night shift to tell me she had had granddaughter No2 to the doctors that day because she had not been right since Monday. Doctor told her to give baby calpol as it was a virus. Daughter was still concerned because baby was crying constantly and not eating and she just felt it was not right. I told her if she was really worried at all and got concerned to go to A&E. I text daughter Wednesday morning when I finished my shift, got no reply. Phoned, no reply so I instinctively knew baby was not well. Managed some sleep and when I woke daughter had left me a message that baby was in hospital with a urinary infection.  Urinary infections are a lot worse for babies and they were concerned that the infection might have damaged her kidneys.

Baby had a bad night with sickness and diarrhea because of the medication. she had a scan today to check her kidneys and they seem okay but baby not improving yet. I am looking after granddaughter No1 whilst her mum and dad are at the hospital all the time. So at the moment worried  and upset for baby granddaughter and busy looking after a very active 3 year old. Hopefully tomorrow will bring good news, fingers crossed.

Bye for now x
