Fevers, Fevers, Fevers!
Aubree is not doing better, in fact she is doing worse. After chemo she has no immune system so anything can attack her, even the bactiria on her own skin. Last night Aubree came down with a fever. I think it ranks up there with one of the most nerve racking nights yet. Her temperature slowly crept up, and I knew that it was not going to go down. But the nurses couldnt do anything until it was offically a fever. I sat there with her, just holding her, she didnt feel good enough to really fall alseep on her own, and she cried all night in her sleep anyway. It took about 3 to 4 hours for her fever to creep up and all I could do was hold her and know what was coming. It was the worst feeling, I was completely helpless. There was nothing that I could do. I was scared for her, she wouldnt eat, not that she has been eating all that well before, but at least we could get her to eat a little, but now she wont eat at all. All she does is sleep. Gone are the smile and the laughs, if she is awake all she does is cry or lay there, she does still look out the window but she wont even hold up her own head. She has started antibiotics and that should help her to fight off whatever it is that she has, and hopefully she will feel better in a day or two.
