Ember Roloff, two-years-old, the cute little girl of Jeremy and Audrey Roloff gave mom and dad a scare this week. Apparently, they rushed Ember to the ER as she had a high fever. Jeremy said that her “fever spiked” and as she’s been unwell this week, they thought it the right thing to do. The couple waited anxiously through to the wee hours.
Ember Roloff in hospital – Jeremy knows how that feels
Six weeks ago, Jermey revealed that underwent hernia surgery. TV Shows Ace reported that he vowed in the future, he takes his health more seriously. At the time, he put off going to the doc. Later, he shared on Instagram, “Health is something that needs continual attention.” And when it comes to kids, they sure do. So, he and Aurdery never hesitated to rush Ember to the ER when her “fever spiked.”
People reported that this week, Jeremy grew frustrated at the hospital. He shared on his Instagram Stories that it took hours of waiting for Ember’s “urine” test results. Jeremy felt that delay didn’t “make sense.” He also noted in another Story, “Hospitals need fixing.” Well, for every parent who ever sat at the hospital with their sick child, time drags as they fret over their little one. He and Audrey only got home with Ember at around 5.00 am, Audrey noted on her Instagram.
Poor little Ember felt sick all week
Just days ago, grandad Matt hosted them at a Christmas party. Matt thanked Caryn Chandler for hosting”back-to-back” parties. That pic showed them with Lilah and Jackson, Tori Roloff’s kids. But, Jeremy, Audrey, and Ember Roloff also celebrated early with them. And, the day before, he shared that Ember painted him a nice picture. She looked okay in that picture. But Jeremy said she felt sick all week. At least she got in a Christmas party with grandad before her ER visit.
This time of the year, across social media, TV stars complain they feel ill. The season of goodwill and joy arrives, along with various colds, coughs, flu on the side. CDC reports that “most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February.” But, Audrey said this time her daughter suffered a “tummy bug.” We certainly hope she gets better soon. Any time kids become sick, concerned parents just hope for a quick recovery.
When should you take your little kid to the ER?
Children always experience a fever at one stage or another in their lives. But, when should parents like Audrey and Jeremy Roloff rush them to the ER? Kids Health Org notes on their website, “a higher temperature [comes in] response to an infection, illness, or some other cause. ” They recommend for kids in Embers age bracket, “If your child is between 3 months and 3 years old and has a fever of 102.2°F (39°C) or higher, call to see if your doctor needs to see your child.”
Ember Roloff went straight to the ER, and in the photo Audrey shared, she looked very ill, so possibly, Jeremy and Audrey didn’t want to risk waiting until morning to get their sweet girl medical attention. And, it turned out the poor little tyke has Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), an infection in the lungs and respiratory tract.

Behind the scenes of our reality lately… I thought I’d have more cute family Christmas photos🎄 filling my camera roll by now, but instead I have this photo… Holding a sick baby at 4 a.m. in the emergency room😔 Last week Ember came down with her first bad tummy bug and it was a solid 4 or 5 days of “owie tummy,” fever and vommiting… she started to feel better for a couple days, but then started saying “owie” when she went to the bathroom… and then at night spiked a high fever so I was concerned about a UTI. We walked in to the ER at 11 p.m. and didn’t get discharged till 5 a.m. 🙈 Sitting on that miserable chair all night, while 37 weeks pregnant, just to wait for a urine sample and a nose swab.. I do not understand the ER🤦🏼♀️ Welp, turns out she has RSV🙈 on top of everything else she’s been through the last week. Was up all night again last night with a horrible cough and fever😢 In between comforting her, the pressure of a book manuscript that’s already past deadline🤪, all the year-end stuff when you run your own business/shop, Christmas commitments, the final weeks of pregnancy aches/emotions, and just feeling nervous for labor… I’m at the end of an already frayed rope. So if your week doesn’t look as dreamy and perfect as the Christmasy photos you’re seeing on Instagram right now, you’re not alone.🙋🏼♀️ I’m giving myself permission to have unwrapped gifts under the tree, unresponded to e-mails/texts, stay in my pajamas, let the laundry baskets overflow, put on another episode of Daniel Tiger for Ember, and order take out for the 4th time this week. 🥡Maybe you need to extend extra grace to yourself this week too. I give you permission.
Jeremy and Audrey waiting into the wee hours at the ER to find out if Ember was okay, is probably something many Little People, Big World fans can relate to. Go ahead and share your experiences in the comments below.
