Get Well Kimberly

Kimberly has been sick since last week.  She has a headache that won't quit, along with a very sore neck, blisters on the roof of her mouth, throwing up, fever and chills, etc.  She has been to Urgent Care twice and as I type this, she is at the ER.  The doctor has done a cat scan which came back good, and blood cultures that have come back good.  About an hour ago they did a spinal tap and she is waiting on the results of that.  We are hoping they can rule out the idea of menengitis!  I will keep you posted on my blog.

UPDATE:  1:53am:  I talked with Kimberly until she got home from the ER.  The doctor said the spinal tap results were inconclusive.  He said he didn't want to tell her she has menengitis but he couldn't tell her she didn't. They are going to run more tests on it and also check the blood cultures to see if anything is growing.  She is feeling pretty good right now but she is pumped full of pain medicine!!
