1 more day and still sick!

Thank you all for all of your prayers and comments!
It looks like Kennedy is going to be pretty sick for her birthday and for her party. Lastnight her fever got extremely bad. It started out as a low grade of 100.7 and then by this moring it was 102.4. I called the doctor and they said she needed to be seen.
So, we get there around 9:00 and they call her back. First they done a strep test and it was negative, then looked at her ears they were fine, she looked in her mouth and had some really bad spots on her throat. She decide to do some blood work because there was something going on but wasn't sure what! So, we waited of course what felt like forever and in comes the doctor. She proceeds to tell us her white blood count was extremely high. The norm would be around 10,000 to 15,000 and Kennedy's was a little of 25,000! Her red blood count was extremely low! (I can't remember the exact numbers but it was really bad too! Whick is abnormal if she has some type of infection.(The count should be the opposite, white should be low and red high. Meaning something is going on.) So of course my eyes tear up and Kennedy is screaming through the whole doctors visit and at this point I just wanted to cry! My baby is hurting and that makes me hurt. Now the plan is to go back to the doctors office first thing in the morning, do some blood work and regroup! If her blood work comes back abnormal again she wants to do more testing!
I just pray everything is ok and she'll be fine! Afterall, Saturday is her party (at 11:30) and as a mommy I justed wanted everything to be perfect and go smoothly! Iknow God will take care of the situation, even if it's not doing things my way!
