Going to try to make this short.

Thursday, little rose has a fever and green snot (had a cold the previous week). Took her in and it's an ear infection.

Friday, little rose felt warm, looked a little off (wasn't running a temp), and didn't want to eat at school. She didn't want to nurse at night (but did take a bottle straight from the fridge), and couldn't be consoled. She cried like she was in agony and nothing we did would stop her.

Took her in to the ER and basically spent the night there. She ended up having hand, foot, & mouth disease on top of a now DOUBLE ear infection. At least she didn't have meningitis (which they were worried she had). Oh her body temp was 96.8 which concerned them as well since low body temp in babies can indicate infection. They gave the poor girl roceffin (a really strong medicine for the ear infection) - a double injection into her thighs.

Saturday - got home at 5 am and went to sleep. little rose wouldn't nurse so I've been pumping. DH discovered that she cut 2 teeth over the course of the day. I took her back for a 24 hour check. It's def hand foot & mouth, but the ears look better. Temp was still low - 96.8 again. At least I only spent a few hours there this time.

Sunday and Monday I try periodically to nurse her, but she just holds my nipple in her mouth and looks at me as if saying "And you want me to do what now?"

I'm so hoping she'll start nursing again once the sores are healed. I wasn't ready to give up that special bonding time with her and I don't know if I want to spend the summer pumping. I could cry right now. :crying:

At least she's beginning to feel better. I do have to take back to the dr's on Tuesday for another check.

oh, and she weighs 13 pounds 12 oz.

poor little thing! Hopefully she'll nurse again once she feels better. The cold stuff is probably soothing on her little mouth.

I LOVE my hospital! Just got a call from them that one of her cultures grew, so now we're on to another round of antibiotics just in case the roceffin didn't kill it all.

Poor wee sweetie! I hope she perks up soon! There is a great chance she'll resume nursing once she is feeling better. Hugs!

She has been nursing for so long, so it should be easy for her to pick it right back up.

Hand, Foot, and Mouth is no fun! When I was student teaching, my cooperating teacher's son had it. Poor baby.

Poor baby. Tristan just had HFM disease a few weeks ago and he didn't want to nurse bc the sores in his throat hurt when he tried. Once those went away he was back to normal. I hope she gets better soon

I'm glad he's feeling better. Thanks for the encouragement.

I'm sure she'll be up and back to normal before you know it. Congratulations on the new teeth!

It is soooo hard when our babies are sick and we feel helpless!
