It hasn't been a good week for the Axt family. Eliot got more and more sick as the week progressed. Her CRP level - which had started to decline and was at 6 on Monday - went up Tuesday morning, again on Wednesday, and one more slap in the face to round things out this morning. I feel like I'm walking in water.
We will still be in the dark for a few days, as it takes 48 hours for blood cultures to come back. When you are waiting for an answer about the cause and extent of sickness in your child, 48 hours seems like an eternity. Every "down" on this roller coaster ride has been difficult, but this - by far - is the absolute worst. We have hit rock bottom, friends. And it's hard.
I wish I had better news to blog about today. But more than that, I wish I had some good news to give Eliot. She deserves it.
