Extra prayer needed....Lisa spiked a fever and may need to be admitted

I guess cancer is a little bit like the mailman....neither wind, nor rain, nor sleet, nor snow can stop chemo.  Wednesday when most people enjoyed a snow day thanks to the weather, Mike and Lisa had to head to the hospital for chemo.

She seemed to be handling the chemo well, but had started getting a cold earlier in the week.  That has now morphed into flu like symptoms with vomiting, aches, pains, cough and high fever.   Unlike other kids fighting the flu we can't just keep her home in bed.  As soon as her temp spikes, we have to bring her to the ER to get her examined.  It most likely means an overnight stay at Mott's 7th Floor.   I'm still hoping they will release her, but as the hours tick by, it's not looking promising.  So while neither wind, nor rain, nor sleet, nor snow stopped her chemo this week, a flu bug may delay it.  Total bummer.

I so miss the days when giving Tylenol, liquids and bed rest on a frequent basis was how we dealt with a bug.  Send up an extra prayer that Lisa fights this and is able to regain her strength and ability to beat cancer.

EEK!  After I posted this message, I stepped out in the hall to get a drink.  There are kids EVERYWHERE in chairs and stretchers...looks like the bubonic plaque.  I back in the room with Lisa where she is sleeping peacefully and I'm sealing up the door!!!
