Good News all around...

Does this look like a kid who has a 103+ fever to you?

Mimi left the hospital Friday with no fever, two hours later she got a fever. I called the clinic thankfully Tylenol was okayed and we were able to stay home unless things got worse. She was running between 99 and 101 all Saturday but acting totally normal. Sunday (today) she was just hanging out but looked flushed sure enough 102. Instead of getting admitted we went to the ER to get counts checked and if they were low we would stay overnight if not we go go home. Her fever got higher (103.4) but came down with some Motrin and Tylenol. Counts came back and they were good! Mimi colored some pictures while she got Ceftriaxone the IV antibiotic and then we were off on our way home. This was a super fast ER visit, 4 hours!


WBC - 4.9
Hgb - 10
Neutrophil - 1540!!!

On Friday Mimi's CRP was 8 today it was 4.
CRP (C-Reactive Protein) A high or increasing amount of CRP in your blood suggests that you have an acute infection or inflammation. If the CRP level in your blood drops, it means that you are getting better and inflammation is being reduced.

We were suppose to get a hurricane today, it was kind off eerie being at home waiting for something bad to happen. The girls are learning about all these different weather conditions and are obsessed with the weather channel. Thankfully all we got was some rain and wind. I hope everyone else is okay.


  1. 1540, Woo hoo!! Hopefully the fevers stop. This is crazy, and I'm sure she's tired of it also.

  2. finally have power again over here!! haley says hi mimi... hope to see you soon to go to Atkins fruit farm again : ) feel better - love auntie roya
