Waiting for the Call

Well, my temperature did go up last night to 101 and I had to page the nurse. She told me to take 2 extra strength Tylenol. The ones I had were the 8 hour kind. So, at 3 a.m. right at the 8 hour mark, my fever was back to 101. I took some more, kept drinking cool water, cool wash cloth on my forehead and put the ceiling fan on high. I dozed from about 4:30 or so until 7:00. I have no symptoms to date with this fever except body aches and chills.

Now I am waiting for a call from the clinic. The nurse will be consulting with the doctor on my fever situation this morning and see if he wants me to go in to have a CBC run to check my white blood count. If I do, I will be asking to throw one last hCG on there : ) –might as well?

Thank you for your encouragement. I am hopeful and prayerful through all of this. I will update when I hear from the clinic. I got up long enough to do my injections and do this quick post.

  • From the start this has been a journey of faith…continue to stand strong in the Lord and in His mighty strength. God can continue the pregnancy even with this fever/chills/body aches. Nothing is impossible with God! Praying for these sweet babies!! We appreciate the updates and following your adoption journey!

  • Hang in there, Shannon!

  • ((hugs))

    echoing Michelle…hang in there friend!!!

    Thanks for keeping us updated!

  • Praying that all is well. Please update when you can!!

  • I’m so sorry that this fever battle just continues. If it is indeed a virus or something of that nature, we had something similar in our household for two weeks before Christmas– no other symptoms beside a fever that just lasted and lasted! So strange. Praying you are better sooner than soon and that/those little babies are snug a protected inside.
