It may seem like your daughter's status is up and down---and it may be that way for a while. Just be SURE she is getting the best care possible.
These days you have to be your child's advocate. Make sure the proper tests are being done and that every thing that can be done is being done. If
neccessary, transfer her to a better hospital if you have any reason to doubt she is getting the best care. Make sure an adult is always with her and
do your research...stay on top of things with the doctors. Ask questions. Lots of them. Know what they are doing and why. Purchase the best
possible care you can possibly afford.
So sorry about your worries...It's horrible when our children are sick and we don't know exactly why.
There are some nasty bugs going around, espeically in the US, since the summer has been so warm and there isn't any rain to wash bacteria, etc. away.
I have been sick for going on two weeks----something that started out as a cold (I caught it from someone in my family) and now, in this second week,
I am a mess and not getting better. Just visited the docs, and now armed with some serious drugs, hopefully on the mend.
I tell you this because two people can react in entirely different ways to the same virus/illness.
It sounds like your daughter has an infection somewhere---and all of her symptoms come from her body's defense mechanisms...shivering, rapid heart,
(rapid heart, by the way, is a sign your daughter is under physical stress). Infections can be hard to treat, are often mysterious and tempermental.
While the doctors try to pinpoint the source of your infection, they'll try to treat it. Stay on top of things, always one step ahead.
