Kendi Update

Hi all. We're heading to the hospital. Kendi's fever has not broken since about midnight last night. It's not getting below 103 with giving fever reducer every two hours. She vomited meds this morning. No appetite. She is drinking water. On call physician at Ark Children's thought it was probably time to take her to the ER but said we should speak to our local Ped first. Local on call PED said forget the ER--they are admitting her for a day at St. Francis Children's Hospital. We're waiting for room number and such right now. Local Ped highly suspects recurrent malaria.

It was a long night with very little sleep because of a flailing and super hot 3 year old in my bed. Will probably be a longer day, but at least we don't have to wait for hours in the ER.

Please continue to pray for my baby, and please also remember my family at home. It sort of messes things up with the mom and the taxi service are not available!

Hope Kendi is feeling much better and the doctors were able to get some answers.
