UGH!!!!!! I don't know if I should scream or cry!! Maybe I'll do both soon! She's got a fever! I'm posting asking for divine intervention that the fever breaks and we're back to the Ronald Hose this afternoon after she finishes this blood transfusion.
Christi was up so late last night literally chasing her sister and other kids and sweet Volunteers around the Ronald McDonald House's incredible new playroom. She was feeling incredibly well, even though her counts told me she shouldn't be. At bedtime, Christi asked to have me tape record and analyze her reading since she is one of the "students" I'm doing an indepth case study on for my current OSU class and I wasn't able to since we were separated last week. She read passage after passage for me and answered all of the comprehension questions, even at the high school level- totally amazing me with her high grade level of reading accuracy and c omprehension. She was up reading her own "Hank the Cowdog" book until at least 11:00 PM so I wasn't surprised when I woke her up and she was still sleeping or that she was so cold because I knew she needed blood. What did surprise me is that she asked to ride in her stroller instead of walking and she was freezing in the very warm temps outside and she's been curled up asleep at the hospital the entire time we've been here. After Dr. Maris examined her and I told him that we intended to fly back to Ohio on Friday, as her ballet and jazz recital was coming up very soon - she spiked a fever. @X&*!X$*&!! Prayers appreciated.
