No sooner had I hit the "post" button on my last entry than Annika woke up crying and radiating heat that I could feel before I even touched her forehead. We went to the E.R., returning home at 3 a.m. with no explanation but reassured it was nothing critical.
Two days later the fevers continue, and she now has such horrible pains in her right leg that she has once again stopped walking. So we're back to Chicago where she will be admitted. It's possible the leg pains are just from over-exertion after such a long time of disuse. But they want to make sure she hasn't developed a DVT
. Also, they're going to check into the possibility that she has a touch of pneumonia, which was one possibility the E.R. doc suggested.
