Hannah had a good night's sleep last night and has had a much better (fever-free) day today. She received both blood and platelets today, and the shot of red blood cells has really improved her energy level. Her throat is still sore, but not quite as bad, and she's eaten three good meals today. Yesterday, when we arrived, some blood cultures were taken, and we were told today that one of them is showing positive for some type of bacteria. Apparently, the source of the infection is in her bloodstream, although we don't yet know what the specific type of infection is. We were hoping to get those results this afternoon, but it looks like we will not know until morning. Depending on the type of infection, we may have to stay in the hospital for a few more days to continue the IV antibiotics. We do not know yet when the MRI will be done...there's still a possibility that it will be tomorrow.
We are very thankful that we are here where she is getting excellent care, and that we were able to catch this infection early! Thank you so much for your prayers...we will keep you posted on our progress!
God is good, all the time!
