P is for Prayers

Charlotte spiked a fever today of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

We don't know why and she's currently not showing any other signs, other than a rapid heart rate. Her initial blood work, abdominal girth, and lung sounds all check out. Her white count is a little low, but not incredibly alarming.

Her fever has not responded to tylenol or ice baths. For some reason, this fever is just not coming down the way they would like it to.

We're hoping for more answers in the next 24-48 hours, as her blood cultures start coming back, otherwise, it looks like Miss Charlotte will need a spinal tap.

Please pray for answers. We know her doctors and nurses are doing all they can to keep her healthy, but fighting against a nameless infection can be difficult. It helps to know the enemy. Thank you all. We'll keep you updated as we learn anything.

  5. I've asked the woman who teaches yoga at my school if she will dedicate tomorrow's class to Charlotte. She will announce at the beginning of the class that the intentions of the class are for Charlotte-- usually 20 teachers show up for this so there should be some powerful energy heading Charlotte's way :)
