The worst part of fatherhood

Is the worry that comes with your kids being sick.

iMac has had a fever for 6 days. The first trip to the doctor yielded no information – all cultures came back negative, so it’s not the flu nor was there any indication of any particular bacterial infection like strep. Her symptoms have primarily been a fever that doesn’t drop much with Tylenol or Advil and an occasional general ache, but for the most part she feels fine. We took her back to the doctor yesterday and she had her blood drawn for further tests.

Having the doctor himself call you later isn’t the best feeling.

Her white blood cell count was half what it should be. She’s at the office again getting another run of tests. If the count has dropped any more, she’ll be hospitalized. To say I’m worried sick is an understatement.

Prayers are appreciated.
