Annabel is in the hospital where she can get IV antibiotics. Cathy mentioned strep, fever, vomiting, being "out of it."
I know Cathy was up all night in the ER last night and is really behind on sleep. But Dr. B was the one who admitted Annabel, sweet Ida got 2 IV's, and Telecia answered the phone when I tried to call Annabel's room. If I understood Cathy correctly, even the ER nurse who usually cared for Mallorie and always got a scalp IV for her, was Annabel's nurse in the ER last night. Annabel and Cathy are surrounded with love, with people who know them. It's not the same as being at home, but it's better than being 2 hours away. Her sweet husband was able to bring her something from Subway, and everyone there knows Cathy and her girl. It's a good place to be.
Please pray that Annabel responds quickly to the antibiotics, and that Cathy manages to get some sleep. And since sometimes mothers second-guess every decision they ever make, I'm praying that people say things to her like Dr. B did .... "Cathy, she got sick. You can't prevent that."
