We're back... Day 391 08DEC09

We're back in the hospital again.

Joshua's fever went up to 102 at 2 in the morning and we had to make the call. Dr. O said bring him in (Renee was already packed). So we break our streak of stay at home days and now we have to start all over again after we get him back home. That makes our current record 81 days. Just a week short of three months.

His fever had broken by this afternoon and he was doing fine at the hospital. His fever needs to stay away for two days and his counts need to come up over 500. Tack that on to a clear run of blood cultures and we might be able to get him out before the weekend hits. Here's hoping this is a short stay and he is just fighting off some kind of minor bug.

One of the other kids that was at the same camp over the weekend is in the hospital as well, he came down with a fever on Sunday night. Interesting...

So we are gypsies again at least for a little while. Jarrod and I will settle into our old routine and Renee and Joshua will adapt to being at the hospital again. I am really hoping this is a pre-emptive strike so that we will definitely be home for Christmas this year.
