Need a cold front... Day 390 07DEC09
Today was clinic day and we got a shock. Joshua's ANC was only 320. Quite a drop from last week at over 2000. Add to this the fact that he was cold and wet most of the time at camp and in contact with tons of people we don't know and we are a little worried.
After clinic Renee, Jarrod, and Joshua went over to Grandma Gandy's to help her decorate for Christmas. I got a chance to stop by briefly on my way to work and things were looking pretty good already. When they were finished they ran a few errands and then headed home.
Our fears were apparently well founded. Renee called me this evening to let me know Josh was running a fever of 100.1 then 100.4, later 100.6... We know this routine... It was down to 100.1 when I got home so we are on hold for now. We will be checking his temp every two hours and hoping against all hope that he does not continue to climb. We need a serious internal cold front right now. What we do not need is a stay in the hospital.
