Yep, we're back


Yep, we're back at Children's. Austin's fevers continue. Actually, he is fine during the day (around 99 degrees). At night they get up to 101-102. Very strange isn't it? The rheumatologist came in last night. He ordered some blood work to test for lupus, vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis. But upon physical exam, he didn't think these looked likely. Austin has been having more pain in his hips and/or lower back, so we went down for x-rays this morning. So....we wait some more...until we get test results...and hopefully answers???

Afternoon addendum: More tests are ordered for tomorrow; a CT scan and a bone scan.

It must be so frustrating to all of you. Praying you get some answers soon.

Ugh!! I am so sorry for all of you! I'm sorry that Austin is feeling bad and I'm sorry for the frustration that you must have with figuring this out for him.

I'm continuing to pray!
