Another Day, Another ER Visit

Over Shabbat, Tehilla was not acting herself. She was cranky and needy and then developed a fever. She has a fever and a runny nose. I checked her oxygen saturation and it was fine. Her fevers continued all last night.

So this morning, we went to see our doctor.  With Tehilla,  all fevers need to be checked out.

For the past few weeks, Tehilla has been sick nearly every 3 days. Twice she has received antibiotics on the past month without a complete confirmed diagnosis.  She is still on antibiotics and has a fever now.

There is a good chance that she just has another virus, but because it's Tehilla - there is also a chance that she has an infection in the foreign material in her heart. It's called endocarditis.  That is the worry and that's why we are on our way to the ER.

We are being sent for a bunch of tests and an echo. Let's hope that it is nothing more than a virus.

Please pray for Tehilla.
