Worse yet

*Updated*

Faye's worse this morning. Her fever's over 104 and they can't get it to go down. She's been throwing up more. And the cultures they took yesterday came back with bacteria. So they know she has some kind of infection. Nick says she just lays there really sad and won't say a word except to tell him she has to throw up or go to the bathroom.

They just told Nick that it is some form of strep. It is pretty common for AML patients to get, but can still get scary. They are taking another blood culture to see if it's responding to the antibiotics. If not, they plan to take her PICC line out in case it's the culprit of the bacteria. So, she'll have a temporary PICC line placed and have to get poked every time they need more blood. That would be pretty crappy. And if she's not eating by tomorrow she'll have to get some kind of nutrient supplement that is hard on the liver. If anything gets any worse she'll probably be moved to the PICU which wouldn't be too fun either.

Faye needs your prayers today!
