I got a call from an ER nurse requesting Jake to come back in and get admitted to the hospital. The Hem/Onc consult doc wanted to give him some more antibiotics. I politely told her "No Thanks! We will follow up with our own docs here." Jake wanted nothing to do with going back to the hospital! Last time we had an ER visit, he was fine in the morning. It didn't work out the same this time! He still had a fever of 101. No doctors I trust were available Saturday evening. I knew I had to get some more antibiotics in him and some food. With a little medical background, some research, common sense and a lot of faith, I found something that worked! His fever was down this morning and completely gone by this afternoon!
I was pretty stressed and emotional all morning because the choir was meeting at my house and I wasn't sure if I would have to take Jake back to the ER this morning. Wasn't sure if I could give my Primary lesson either. It all worked out...somehow. I was strengthened my some friends and the spirit at church. I did get choked up, however, when they sang I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus in Primary because it now reminds me of John leaving home. Jake gets another round of labs in the morning and if the counts are good, then we will stay the course. If not, we will take a trip up to the clinic.
You know, I was so looking forward to a break from all this! I guess it was silly of me to think, No chemo, no problems! Sigh!
