One very sick kid

We have one very sick girlie here.

Poor baby has been fighting whatever it is for 9+ days. The doctors are not sure exactly what it is we are fighting, but it has been antibiotic resistant so far. After a full blood pannel draw was taken on Tuesday and then not sent off because the CBC appeared to give them the info they needed, she was put on another antibiotic, a "big gun." She still had a 105 fever this morning, 4 doses in. So back we went today for more talk, observation, and another 3 vial blood draw to be sent to a technician view (won't just be computer scanned) work up. And another "big gun" was called out. The pharmacist was amazed to see us back, 4th prescription between two kids in 6 days. We'll have some results back tomorrow, the others not until Monday. Would you please keep Piper in your prayers?
