I wanted to let everyone know that Riley was admitted to CHOP
yesterday, through the ER. He had a fever that wasn’t coming down
with Tylenol. Once it had reached 100.7…..it was time to call the
fellow anyway. She, of course, said bring him in.
Remember…….Riley doesn’t have a spleen!
In the ER his temp had reached 103. After that it started to come down.
He was started on IV antibiotics in the ER, and was just given another
dose a little while ago. Now we wait for test results. They test
everything that you can imagine.
If it’s anything like the past, though, everything will come back negative,
and we’ll go home tomorrow. His fever is already gone, but we have to
see if there is an answer to what caused it. (probably his stay earlier in
the week in the CICU!!) I may be going out on a limb here, but I’m gonna say
he’ll be discharged tomorrow.
