In Hospital Again.............

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for not updating you all sooner. I will start by letting you all know that Julia did get home the day of Anthony's communion. Although after only 2 days home she developed fevers again and was diagnosed with a really bad ear infection. She started high dose antibiotics for 10 days. During those 10 days she felt great. She finished her antibiotics on Friday and by Sunday the fevers returned. She was once again admitted to Sick Kids on Monday for fever neutropenia. She has 0 counts, and the medical staff is stomped. She has been really sick and out of it this admission and she is getting a blood transfusion as I write this post. We hope she perks up a little after her blood transfusion. Unlike other admissions all of Julia's blood counts are down, not only her neutrophils, but hemoglobin and platelets as well. This has me extremely worried. She is booked for a Bone Marrow Biopsy on Monday morning. Since this is now 5 days of fever they will begin a fungal workup which consists of CT scans. Julia's oncologist has been away so things are a little up in the air. The team on the ward isn't saying much (that's never a good sign). She is back tomorrow so I hope to have some clearer answers and a more concrete plan as to where we go from here.

I will keep you all posted when i can. Please like always keep Julia in your prayers.
