Bummer. Not 2 hours after the last post Kate developed a fever! I swear that I jinxed us. After her platlet transfusion we left the hospital and she was really tired so she took a nap. After 3 hours she woke up and told me that her head hurt and felt "smooshy". I put my hand on her forhead and she was hot. Took the temperature and it was 101 degrees. Big time bummer. We knew that with her counts so low she was going to have to be admitted.
She is doing fine now but will have to stay in the hospital for a few days, until her blood cultures are negative and her blood counts start trending up. As always, please keep her in your prayers. I will post more tomorrow when I am less sleepy.
