8:07 AM Well, I had a long, detailed post that simply evaporated in front of my eyes. So, here's the abbreviated version:
Sophie went to the ER last night with a fever. She's had a runny nose for a day or two and has been complaining of a headache. Susan took her to our local ER (not our favorite place), but it seemed to turn out okay because our friend Carole from church was working there. Sophie did well with the blood draw and her counts came back okay. They're a little low, but okay. Apparently, Sophie hated-hated-hated the flu swab (up her nose) and the bad news is that she does have the flu. We're not sure what the means treatment-wise or even how that will affect her overall health. She's had a flu shot, but she got it anyway. I'm hoping that the shot will help minimize the symptoms or decrease the amount of time she's sick. We'll see. We're waiting to hear back from Chapel Hill today on how to proceed. For the moment, Sophie and Susan are both sleeping since they didn't get home until 5am this morning.
