Well our plans of being boring were short lived! Yesterday she ate hardly anything, and she seemed not quite like herself. Last night her and I were laying on the couch watching Gymnastics....Faye was super concerned about the girl that hurt her knee. But she was feeling a little warm to me. I always hesitate having them check....I try to convince myself I am just being paranoid, but its better to get a start on it, if anything is wrong! Sure enough last night Faye spiked a fever of 103, we gave her Tylenol, and it quickly came down, but then again at 5:00 am we got to 102. She woke up in good spirits this morning, so we will see as the day goes on. The doctors came in this morning and were impressed with how well she was looking, after having a fever last night of 103.
(Three medicines in the morning....and that was even before the fever!)
Yesterday they sent us down to get x-rays of her chest to make sure there was no pneumonia forming in her lungs. Her lungs looked good, but the x-ray showed that her PICC line, which is usually supposed to be going down, had somehow moved and is in her jugular.....it's hard to explain, but they showed me the x-ray and her PICC line is right next to her throat, when it should be more down to her heart. It is defiantly something that needs fixed, and hopefully tomorrow they can reposition it. Luckily they can still use it to send antibiotics in, at first they thought since it had moved so much they would have to place an IV. but after talking to the vat team they saw that it was still in a vein, and safe to use.
Let's let this fever know it is not welcome!
Nothing like a good nurse to come in and brighten Fayes day!
We LOVE that nurse Katie!
