Another Fever Gone

Thank you for praying. Her fever is gone now. It's so good to have my happy, healthy girl back!

I cannot say enough about how the Lord has blessed us with our pediatrician. I absolutely consider Dr. Schnell a blessing from God. She is wonderful! Yesterday morning she called me (yes, she personally called me, not a nurse!) and talked with me for about 15 minutes about Tali's situation. She said that all test results came back negative but that she took the liberty to walk down to a different office to consult a doctor who specialized in immunology. He shared w/her several potential conditions that Tali could be experiencing with cyclical fevers. Each of those conditions, children generally grow out of but some of them could be treatable.

Anyhow, our pediatrician suggested potentially taking Tali to see this doctor at some point, depending on how December plays out. He told her that he'd be happy to talk with us AND he "just so happens" to be Owen's allergist (who we also really like).

So that's the news as of now. We're praying that this is the last of her fevers, but if they continue, we're glad that we have some potential help available.
