Fever… Not Going Away

The day I found out about Timothy’s potential donor, he started having a fever.  Last time he had a fever was in April.  And it lasted 3 days and went away, without any intervention.  So with this one, I had hoped the same.  Unfortunately, it’s been 8 days and it’s not going away.  We saw his pediatrician on Friday and today saw his immunologist at CHLA.  The fact of the matter is, his fever is getting worse and we don’t know why.  We did some blood tests and tomorrow morning we will find out.  If his numbers are bad, then we will be admitted tomorrow.  Would you please pray for him tonight that he won’t be hospitalized?  He is so much more aware now.  It was a difficult visit today.  I can’t imagine how difficult it would be on him, emotionally and physically to be poked and prodded 24/7 in the hospital.  I am feeling stressed.
