Spiked a Fever, Back to the Hospital

Unfortunately (but not surprisingly), Isabella spiked a fever today so we are back at the hospital.  This is standard procedure since her white cell count is so low.  Isabella hasn’t been feeling too bad the last few days since she’s been home from the hospital, and even today, she wasn’t so obviously sick.  But towards the end of the day, she started acting a little grumpy and felt warm and when we took her temperature, she definitely had a fever.

So we’ll be at the hospital for a few days while they pump her full of antibiotics to help fight off any infections.  They’ll do blood cultures to try and determine if the infection is bacterial so they can use the appropriate antibiotic.

With any luck, we should be home by Tuesday or Wednesday.
