Sitting in the ER...Waiting...June 16, 2011

So, no sleep for tonight yet, its 1230 AM and we left for the hospital about hour and half ago.  Here we sit in the Pediatric ER.  Emily has had a very conflicting temperature between mouth and under the arm.  The last was 101 in her mouth and then 97.7 under her arm.  But we would rather be safe than sorry and brought her to the ER after talking to the Oncology team. When we got her her temp was 97.4, so 98.4 since they add 1.  So, here we sit just waiting for the CBC to come back and they did go ahead do blood cultures to get those out.  Doug and I both sit here exhausted and hungry.  Thanks to pop for coming out to the house to sit with Brianna and Jessie.  

Will keep you guys up to date.  Hopefully we will know something soon!  Hopefully it will be hey lets go ahead and give her antibiotics, counts are low, but temperature is fine and send her on her merry way.  That doesn't ever happen for us, but maybe it will tonight.

Send all the positive vibes you have....
