Teresa is in the hospital, please pray for a very quick and full recovery .
Monday she started sneezing a lot . By Tuesday night she had a 103 fever and very labored breathing. I was up all night holding her sitting up because this was the only way she found a little relief. By Wed. morning she was shaking with chills and her fever only came down to 102.5 . Gemma was scheduled for her blood transfusion today , so I had to reschedule that until Friday . We went to the ER and she was immediately given oxygen , she was down to 63. She was started on IV antibiotics and was moved to the IMCU floor for very close monitoring. We are now waiting for her blood cultures to come back to see how aggressively the infection needs to be treated. This afternoon , she is starting to feel a little better, I think the oxygen is really helping her to breath better and has brought her stats up to 78.
She has been through so much but she still has her magical personality ... helping the nurses , showing them where to put everything and telling them to only take a little blood.
Please pray for her to have peace and not to be so scared. She really is trying to be so brave, even in so much pain.
