Friday Update 12-30-05

Andrea didn't have such a good day, but is doing better now. She was fine Friday morning and still running a small fever (99-101). Then around 1PM she received dialysis for four hours and after that she went downstairs for a scan. When she got out of the scan she was running a 104 fever and we had to cool her down with ice packs, cooling blankets, and fans. The doctors were concerned that it might be something with her heart but quickly ruled that out. The scan showed no evidence of infection. I stayed with her all night and her temp fell all the way to 100. This morning the doctors said that they are not sure what caused the temp spike, but thought it might be one of the antibiotics that has been known to cause fever. They quickly took her off of the med and she current has a 101 temp with no cooling devices. She has been resting good this morning and says that she is just a little bored. We are going to watch the TCU bowl game today and she is excited about that. Keep praying and we can beat this infection. Happy New Years to everyone and thank you so much for all your support. Andrea loves all of you.

J.
it is so great that you made this site for Andrea. It means so much to all of her friends here in Austin. Please let her know that everyone here is praying for her, and we are so proud of her. Praying for that little girl is the least that we can do for her!
Thanks
Andrew

Hi,
I just came across this BLOG. OK. I will start praying for Andrea (I'm a Christian). It will be nice to know the what really happened. But on the other hand it does not matter. I am Originally from Sri Lanka but now live in Brighton, UK (South Coast).
God Bless,
Mohan
