Don't want to leave you hangin'

Sorry I haven't posted another update. Things get a little hectic around here and I don't get much time to sit down and write.

Emily came home on Tuesday. The doctors could never say for certain what caused the high fever and sepsis, nor could they say it won't happen again. The infectious disease doc thought it was a wicked kidney infection; the urologist didn't seem to think so; and the other docs admitted they were stumped. That was refreshing. I would much rather hear someone say they weren't sure than to say, "The only thing I can come up with is..." which is kinda how the ID doc sounded. Anyhow, she's taking a few more days' worth of oral antibiotics and going back in in a couple of weeks to have labs repeated and get checked out again.

She did go to school yesterday and was getting tired by the time it was over. She also said that she got winded climbing the stairs, which is unusual for her. I guess even though she mostly feels recovered, it will take a while before her body catches up with her mind.

Now, to keep an eye on things in case it recurs...

Awesome that she's home. Kind of annoying that they couldn't pinpoint what was wrong. You'd think they would, medicine being an exact science and all...
