Tanner’s fever is down this morning after 2 IV antibiotics. Her leg pain has also lessened, thank God. Her blood cell counts still look good today, so I think we’re going to get to go home. We just have to find an attending who can make that official. The hospital is packed and it’s a holiday, so we may not even see the attending until this afternoon.
She’s on contact precautions right now. It’s so funny, because here I sit with my cold that has brought all this on, but every medical person that comes in here gowns up and wears gloves. So strange. Definitely don’t plan on coming by to see us unannounced; we can’t have visitors at the moment.
Good grief! When else does a 100.7 degree fever send you to the hospital overnight? Will keep you posted.
