So last night didn’t go too well. Averi woke up 3 different times crying and gagging on the mucus in her lungs. I pounded on her back forever and even tried sucking it out but she refuses to cough and just garbles when she breaths. Luckily the Tylenol is helping with her fever.
The doctor called me around 3:00 today, much earlier than I expected. She said the results won’t be final until tomorrow, but it looks like she DOESN’T have AML (a form of leukemia) so she won’t need to be admitted tonight, but she does have transient myeloproliferative disorder (the possible precursor to leukemia that I mentioned before). She will call me tomorrow afternoon to answer questions and give us the treatment plan.
I am relieved that it wasn’t as bad as we had originally thought and I’ll probably be able to sleep a little better tonight, but we still don’t know exactly what’s wrong with her or how they are going to fix it. From the research Dan and I have done, there are different severities of TMD and we won’t know until tomorrow exactly what we are dealing with.
I know that prayers have been answered and hopefully Averi will have an easier battle to fight.
