Wife is in hospital and we leave in 11 days!!!!

Normally I don't post this kind of stuff on here, but right now I need some good vibes for my wife. Sunday, right after Thanksgiving, DW started losing her voice and not feeling great. By that Monday afternoon, she started feeling even worse. Tuesday she got up for work and realized no way. Wed she took herself to Urgent Care and they prescribed Dymista which is some new nasal spray. Flu results were negative. She wasn't allowed back at school until what would have been today. By Friday, she was feeling up to decorating the house for Christmas while I was at work. I took this as a good sign. Saturday morning around 2, DW woke up feeling awful. As she said, death warmed over. Again flu symptoms. Her fever hit well over 102. By mid morning we decided we would go to te ER. Again, took another flu test and it was negative. Also did a chest x-ray and that too was negative. They admitted her. She has a severe upper resp. Infection that has basically taken over. Thr DR said that this year they have seen viral infections like they never had before. We leave next Friday. I just need some extra good vibes that my DW feels better. She is my world.

Prayers for your DW to have a quick recovery.

Did they check for pneumonia? I had a good friend that had it and hit all of a sudden. Spent 3 days in the hospital and is a month into 6 months of antibiotics to clear it completely. He said it was something new also that was difficult to diagnose and thus got really bad. Just a thought.

Just remember Disney is a vacation. Hopefully they will find what is causing it and get it treated asap.

They did check her for that when we got to the ER. X-ray came back negative. I think they were expecting it to be. Hoping as today progresses that she will begin to start feeling human again.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Things have gotten a bit worse. Not long after I got to the hospital mid morning, our school called to say that DD 12 was running a high fever and not feeling well. My DW works at this same school. Lets just say I had one of those you have got to be kidding moments! Because of the circumstances, DW's boss allowed our senior to leave school and take care of our DD. Normally this wouldn't be an option, but we were desperate. We live out of state from our family and the only other option was to leave DW alone. Soooooo lets just say I am praying things start to turn around! So again, thank you for prayers!

Update- DW was feeling a tiny bit better this evening and temp has come way down which is a good sign. Still on about 8 different things but at least we are starting to see a difference. I will say DW had a couple of her best friends come visit today. They know what a Disney freak she is. They bought her a Minnie Mouse Snuggie!!! First time I have seen my DW happy in many days! Also, DD's temp has broken and I am thankful for that. If she is not feeling well in the morning DW's BF has offered to take the day off so she can stay home and I can come to the hospital with my daughter. Sorry very thankful!
