Well yesterday turned out to be kind of tough for G. Night before last Gabriella started running a low grade fever. We kept an eye on it and it was pretty much gone by the morning. I went to work and about 2:00 Kristin called and said that it had spiked and she was heading for the hospital.
Everyone at work scrambled and got me back to my station immediately and home I went. When I arrived at home, our neighbor Julie was waiting for me in the driveway keeping watch over Bridget while she slept. Papa(Kris' dad) got to the house a little after I did to watch Bridgey and I ran over to Dominican Hospital to be with Kris and G. Bridget got to spend her birthday with Nana and Papa.
G's fever subsided but blood blood work did not look good. Her Absolute Nuetrophil Count had dropped below 500 which is apparently bad and her hemocrit and hemoglobin counts were way down. Dominican Hospital contacted LPCH and they sent a BLS ambulance for the ride over. The EMT in the back played some lulabye music and G slept for most of the ride. She slept pretty well last night, they gave her antibiotics and fluid. She woke up today hungry and happy. Her blood counts are still down say they will give her a transfusion and wait for things to improve. The doctors say it could take as long as a week but probably sooner. A group of doctors just came in and said she probably picked up a virus from her sister. She is in very good spirits. She feels fine and we are having fun running around the hospital. They say she will have more energy after the transfusion but she seems to be at pretty normal energy levels now. Just a little pale.
I'll try to keep the blog updated as much as possible for the next few days. Keep up the prayers and thoughts. I am truly convinced that the positive energy makes a difference. I know this thing is stronger than me but it is no way stronger than us.
