This morning the boys left to go camping, so KayTar and I planned our own special day. I suggested the zoo, but she nixed that because the lions might ROAR at her. We settled on a Happy Meal for lunch, followed by a trip to the science museum to see the butterflies.
We picked up our food and headed downtown to the museum. She took a nap in the car and woke up shortly before we parked. Parking was insane, but we finally found a spot and started to walk towards the museum. She was holding my hand and then grabbed onto my arm with both her little hands, leaning her weight on me. She said, "I need you to carry me." and as I picked her up she went limp. At the point, she was still responding to questions and I thought, hoped, that the sun was just making her feel sick and entering the museum would help.
We walked into the lobby and I was able to rouse her. She said, "I'm sick. I have a fever. Carry me to the butterflies." before she fell out of consciousness again. I called Josh and then carried her back to the car. She threw up on the way. Once we were in the car, she was screaming and crying. She said, "Why do my eyes always DO THIS?" She was writhing and smacking her hands together angrily. My poor baby. Eventually she dropped out of consciousness and by the time we got home, she was no longer crying, but she wasn't responding to me anymore either. She still isn't.
I gave her 9 ounces of Pedialyte when we first got home, but she started vomiting about 30 minutes ago and everything has come back up. I administered transdermal Zofran, but I don't know that it will help. I had to move her a little to get a towel underneath her and wipe her up a little and she started screaming. That's the only response I've gotten from her in hours. These things make her so sick and I hate to watch her slip away, unable to do anything to stave it off or bring her back. I had started to believe these episodes were a thing of the past and I'm just devastated that evidently, that isn't the case.
It has already been 4 hours. I hope my girl comes back soon.
