My sweet baby Caroline was hospitalized at 3 weeks old. She began running a fever during the night and that morning I rushed her to the pediatric clinic where Dr. Nikki Ivancic evaluated her. After she was finished, we were sent to the hospital. While we were there they performed a spinal tap, chest X-ray, CBC, blood cultures and urine cultures. We were admitted on Thursday, June 26 and discharged on Monday, June 30. All of her tests came back negative and the spinal tap that was sent to Mayo did not show viral meningitis or any other infection. Once Caroline's fever broke on Sunday afternoon, we were able to go home the next day. It was determined that she basically caught a fever virus from Mary Kate because she had had one a few days before. We are so thankful nothing major was wrong with our sweet baby girl and are so glad to be home!
