Slight Fever

Of course, tonight I get relief from my mom so I can come home and take Abbey to her end of season soccer party and go to her Middle School Orientation. No sooner do I get home, and call to check in on my mom and Ella and my mom says that Ella has a 101 fever!! They gave her Tylenol and took some blood to check her blood cultures to see if there is any infection anywhere. I believe that they also automatically start her on some wide spectrum antibiotics until they can rule out any infection. The fever responded immediately to the Tylenol and as of bedtime, she was still fever free. She had this happen a couple days into chemo and it resolved itself quickly so hopefully this will be the same. Please pray for Ella to remain fever free!!

Earlier, daddy came by to visit on his way in to work and when I noticed that all 3 of us were wearing brown, I said that we should take a family picture to which my husband groaned!! Not 5 minutes later, the nurse walks in and says "You guys should take a family picture, you are all wearing brown". I needed no more nudging....I jumped off the couch and grabbed my camera!! I also wanted to get a couple pics of Ella and daddy since her shirt is all about daddy!! Poor daddy looks very tired in the pics. He stayed the night at the Ronald McDonald house and apparently they were doing some house repairs right outside his bedroom window so he didn't sleep well. The bummers of working nights!!!
