My Alli Girl


The story that happened was that started 2 weeks ago she had really bad shooting pains in her hip joints so we took her in for X-rays and mri's and cat scans and ultrasounds and they found fluid on her joints which the pain actually went away but more symptoms persisted such as a constant 101 fever for 2 weeks and also really puffy swollen face and red urine. So they took her down her for more tests trying to determine what it was. It is a really long name that I can't pronounce so what she had was a post nephritis which means that she had some type of infection that went untreated and moved into her joints and kidneys. She should clear up in a week or so and we are doing a final blood test to make sure that all the levels are normal in 6-8weeks. I guess this thing happens more with strep if it goes untreated but in her case it wasn't strep just somethign else. She went back to school today so she is fine. It was a close call though and we were scared!
