Worried...

I'm worried.

Ashlea's not crawling.  Or sitting up.  It's like its painful or she is really weak and just doesn't have the strength.  She can still roll, but doesn't do it much.  She is still talking but possibly not as much as usual.

The only thing that has changed is we have added phosphate to her diet.  Can phosphate affect your muscles?  She seems really floppy.

Or maybe her sodium has gone really high (she has been very wet the last few days) but there has been no reason for it to go high.  She isn't sick - well she doesn't have any symptoms of being sick.  The only other thing is that we had our swine 'flu shots on the weekend.  Could that have caused it?

Of course it is a public holiday here so I can't call anyone.  I was going to call yesterday but seeing as it was late I decided to leave it until today...and realised too late about the public holiday.  I think I will start by calling the kidney specialists first thing tomorrow and see what they say.  Of course it will probably mean having a blood test....

Please pray that this is a temporary setback for my little miss!

I know of at least one adult (navy guy, big, beefy fellow) who had the flu shot recently and was really unwell for numerous days after...

No temperature? Can she tell you if she's sore? So sorry to hear that your gorgeous girl is unwell, and that you are worried.

I do hope it is only temporary too Alison.

Thinking of you!

praying this is nothing, and that it goes away soon. I did hear it could be a side effect of the vaccine.

Uh oh! I hope she feels better tomorrow- and if she doesn't I would call the doctor! Sometimes shots throw you off a bit, but she should feel better tomorrow! HUgs!
