We have been back and forth all week this week with Brinley's fevers. Thankfully she has not been admitted, but she is borderline...her ANC went down to 500, anything lower than that combined with a fever is a direct admission, so we are hoping for no fever this weekend! The virus should be about done (they are quite certain it is a virus).
GRRRRRR! This fever that Brinley has is being very stubborn. It is very high and not going away. They are letting us give her Tylenol since they think it is viral, but we are traveling up to clinic a lot this week. We were supposed to go in Friday to see if she needs a transfusion, but since her fever is getting up to 103.4 without the tylenol, they want her to come in today instead. They have cancelled her chemo this week because they don't want to start her on steroids while she is sick. I am getting concerned because these are not the same symptoms Jade had. Jade's high fever only lasted a day and a half, and she had a cough, runny nose and sore throat. Brinley has none of that, just a very high fever. Very unnerving. But I know her cultures have come back with no growth, so it's not anything in her blood. We'll check her counts again today and make sure her ANC is still good or we will be inpatient. Fingers crossed for good counts!! I will update later.
