While we have successfully managed to avoid the other girls getting the flu or strep (our youngest was diagnosed with flu A, flu B and strep last Tuesday)...Our fear of Phoebe getting hit with one of the other viruses has happened. She woke up today with a temp of 101.8, curled into "that blanket" and went downhill very quickly. Her temp spiked up to 103.4 early this evening. We were able to use the late weekend office hours at her pediatrician to have her checked. No flu. No strep. But an unidentified virus that is crippling her with fever, fatigue and little desire to eat or drink while simultaneously consuming us with fears we know all too well...fears that are our reality with having an immunocompromised child.
The true author of this blog is my daughter Phoebe. This is her life. I am blessed beyond words to be her mommy and to be able to share her story with you.
