6 day hospital stay

The Monday after the super bowl Adilene was not feeling great.  All weekend she had been spiking a temp up to around 100.  The rule is to call the doctor when her temperature would get up to 101, so we were unsure of what to do all weekend.  Then Monday night at dinner her temp went up to 100.8 and we just called the doctor before it got to late. They decided that we should come in and when you go in you will most likely be admitted for about 2-3 days.  Our stay turned into 6 days.

This hospital stay was a little harder with Fred working, Blaiden here, and Adilene feeling pretty good.  It turns out that Adilene had pneumonia.  We had to stay until Wednesday to make sure she didn't' have an infection.  Her counts were coming back pretty well so they decided on Wednesday that she would just do her next 4 days of chemo in the hospital.

Blaiden and Fred had a pretty wild week together.  We had already made some arrangements for him on Tuesday because Adilene had an appointment.  The problem was that Fred ended up working until about 8:30 so our friends had him for about 14 hours.  Wednesday was also okay because Blaiden went to school and Fred could just pick him up after.  The nights were hard because Fred had to work stat care Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  On Thursday Blaiden had to wake up really early and come spend the day with me and Adilene at the hospital.  It actually was a really fun day and Blaiden got to take a nap in the bathtub!  He was not that excited at first but when he woke up he said it was really comfortable.  Friday and Saturday he went to work with Fred all day. 

Keeping Adilene occupied in the hospital was quite the challenge.  This was our first stay since we got out in January and so she was feeling much much better. This is a good problem to have and I would not have it the other way but man, I was tired.  We were in isolation for the first 3 days and so we couldn't leave our room.  Adilene was also hooked up to fluids and so she couldn't really get out of the bed to play.  After she was cleared to come out of isolation her counts were good enough that we actually got to walk around the entire hospital.  she was so happy to get out of the room let alone leave the floor.  By the end we were so ready to come home and it took all day on Saturday but we got discharged around 6pm. 


  1. What an adventure! I love her hat! I am glad she is out of the hospital.

  2. Successful people have noble spirit, they have bold and courageous. They dictionary, there is no "fear" of the word, they are confident of their ability to be able to dry all undertakings, they consider themselves they are a valuable person.
