I know that many are concerned about Sarah Kate so I wanted to provide an update. Her numbers are trending in the right direction… Enough so that the hope is that she will be able to go home today. Sarah received more blood yesterday, and her fevers are now low-grade. She is feeling totally lousy; but as long as she is stable, home is the best place for her to be.
Sarah Kate’s labs have confirmed that she is in an HLH (Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis) flare. She has had constant fevers since Saturday (some in excess of 105); so that, along with dropping blood counts and outrageously high inflammation markers, has left her feeling terribly sick.
So October 3rd was pretty great. The week following? Hmm, not so much. The travel most enthusiastically kicked my booty. You know that saying, “nothing is impossible with God”? It’s true. Somehow I did indeed make it to Rhode Island and back. But I am pretty sure that pigs could fly more easily than I can, even when taking into account my advantage of having an airplane to help me with that endeavor.
Consequently my body has been angry all week, finally culminating with a high fever and a trip to the ER last night. I was admitted so the doctors could keep a close eye on me.
