So I have decided Cuiching Family = Drama
This weekend Ellie spiked a fever and we had to go down to Children’s ER. Dave had to come strait from work
and met us downtown. The doctors had me so freaked out. They were telling me it could be a problem with her kidneys, which is a side effect of the Chemo. Luckily after many tests and many hours, they gave her some antibiotics and sent her home. It was extremely hard because we were unsure whether we were going to be hospitalized and Ellie was so sad and crying for a good part of our stay.
That night around midnight Ellie spiked a fever again. This time it was 104.3. So Dave and I took turns taking her temp and cooling her down with wet washcloths. The fever finally broke around 4am. I was so happy; if it didn’t break by morning then we would be back in the ER.
Needless to say drama ended and life was good.
Today was Chemo day. I unfortunately was sick so I couldn’t take Ellie downtown.
I am so grateful for my mom who took Ellie to Chemo today. Unfortunately my mom said Ellie had a meltdown in the lobby of the hospital. She was refusing to go upstairs. Eventually with some convincing Ellie made it upstairs. She even did well
enough to get a dollar from Doctor Goldman. Ellie is now home with me and
So, just another week in the Cuiching household of Drama.
A mother with a battle ahead of her.
