For the first time I am having fear when I see my daughter's condition is worsening and both her pediatrician and ER doctor have no conclusion on what's the cause.
Beginning Friday night, her temperature went up to 104 and above, more frequent intermittent abdominal pain, she was sent to ER, did blood (WBC 13.0) and urine test (negative on blood, nitrite and leukocytes, bacteria um none detected) and ultrasound exam on her abdomen around her belly button. Earlier stool test was also negative on rotavirus and no WBC feces. Both ER doctor and her pediatrician (done before the ER visit) physically examined her belly with hands pressing on various areas and eliminated appendix infection. She was discharged early Saturday morning without a conclusion (but suspecting virus) due to all available indicators are negative.
During Saturday and Sunday, her condition was worsening in that her temperature had to be controlled by Motrin and Tylenol alternatively and her abdominal pain is more frequent and long-lasting. Virtually any little food can trigger her abdominal pain.
Two weeks back, Sunday night, she vomited twice and began to express abdominal pain. Since then, we visited her pediatrician several times and did urine, stool and x-ray. The first urine test showed she was dehydrated (Ketones 80 *). This was largely due to not drinking enough water on the long flight from China to US.
In the last two weeks, she does not have any diarrhea. Her abdominal pain is getting worse with increasing frequency. Her aptitude is way below her normal.
My fear is her doctors are running out of ways and my daughter's life is really in danger.
