Back to Lurie's - now discharged!

Ava is at Lurie's again for day 2 of fevers. She had a little fever yesterday that resolved, but had another low-grade fever this morning. Ava had a blood draw yesterday that showed that her numbers are starting to climb back up (which is good). She's still neutropenic with an ANC around 70, meaning that her body is not equipped to fight infection. So the neutropenic fever brings them back to the ER.

As of yesterday, the plan was for Ava to go in tomorrow for another blood draw. If her numbers are sufficient to have a biopsy done, she will have it the same day. (They want to see her ANC higher). Not sure how the current fever affects how these things play out.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

Update @ 2:20pm - Ava has been discharged! Her ANC has gone up to 400 since yesterday (!) and she is scheduled for a biopsy tomorrow. Praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers; we praise God for His provision.
