Phoebe spiked a high fever at 2am this morning and we had to take her in to get intravenous antibiotics. When we got to the ER we learned that Phoebe’s hemoglobin and platelets were very low and her ANC (immune system) was almost at zero.
She received a platelet infusion in the ER, and then they transferred her up to the Hematology/Oncology floor where she received a unit of blood (Thanks to all who have donated in Phoebe’s name). After she received her blood, she started to perk up and even had enough energy for a PT session.
Phoebe will remain in the hospital until her immune system comes back in four to five days.
Deacon is starting to get over his virus, while Ben is in the throes of it and Averic has just started the beginning stages of the virus. It’s not a particularly nasty virus but enough to necessitate separating them from Phoebe. We are hoping by the time Phoebe is discharged next week, everyone will be well enough and we will be reunited at last.
As always thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers, comments and support. I can’t tell you what it means to know that we are not in this alone.
