News from the Hospital
Olivia's fever has broken (YAHOO) so we will hopefully get some sleep tonight. All of her bloodwork came back okay. The X-Ray did show a patchy area on her right middle lobe (of her lung), which is most likely mucous. They think that the fever was just caused by a virus and the only reason they are being so aggressive is because of her having CF. They don't know if any of this was an exacerbation of the CF. Tomorrow she will be sedated to have a PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) line placed in her arm and then on Tuesday she will be sedated again for her bronchoscopy (which was originally scheduled for December 22). I was nervous about Olivia being sedated one time and now to find out it will be twice in two days makes me pretty much a wreck! Everyone please send warm and fuzzy thoughts, hopes and prayers on to her to get better and make it through these two procedures!
