…making an unscheduled visit to the hospital.
Lissa started coughing yesterday, and develloped a fever. This morning it went up to 101, which is considered an emergency in Leukemia patients, and when I called her doctor I was told to bring her in immediately so she could be given antibiotics through her access port.
She will be recieving additional treatments tomorrow and the next day from a home health care nurse.
The hem/onc nurses told that this sort of thing was ‘pretty normal with these kids, especially in winter’. It’s not considered particularly dangerous… as long as it is handled promtly. Which it was.
