Gabey D. is our wonderful firstborn son. He was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) in May 2007, and has been going through a 3 1/2 year chemo treatment. We are trusting God, and believe He will show Himself Mighty.

Fever

I wasn't expecting to have to update so soon. :(
Gabey seemed to have a fever today, and so when we called, they said for us to take him in. We had to go to the ER, and when we got there, HIS FEVER WAS GONE. I was so glad, but then they said they would still have to take a blood culture, and give him antibiotics anyway. Oh, mannn.

They gave him happy juice this time, so he was a bit drunk the whole time. He still was upset when they put the "clippy" in, he didn't fight as much though. It took about a half hour for them to give the antibiotic, by IV.

On one hand, it was funny seeing him act so loopy, but then it was also really sad seeing him that way. I have never liked seeing people drunk, not being themselves. I know they're not all there. That's what it looked like.

He's totally fine, the med hasn't totally worn off yet, he was goofy all the way home. They said he'd probably not even remember the experience. I'm glad about that. It's rough having to have the tuby put in so often. His poor skin is so red and raw from all the tape and bandages.

Pray that he doesn't get another fever. They said if he got another fever, we'd have to take him in again for more antibiotics. :(
