Last night Dillon's nurse called off and he spiked a fever with heart rate around 240. We got the fever down with medicine and took him to the doctor today. She sent us right up to CHOP's ER. We have been here since 6pm. Dillon will be going home very soon though. Everything came back fine (chest X-Ray, blood tests, etc.) We are still waiting on a blood culture and urine culture but they feel we can go home. The doctor was also concerned b/c when she touched his lower right stomach area he moaned. This is the area of the apendix (sp?) so she wanted to be sure there was nothing going on with that. The belly X-ray and CBC (blood work) did not show anything.
We still don't know why Dillon' s has been having fevers for 9 days even though he has been on antibiotics for 7 days, but maybe it is just a virus. We have to see our doctor in Paoli tomorrow.
Gotta go they are letting him go now at 12:45am
