Life's Unexpected

I am writing this post from Doernbecher hospital.

Wednesday night I took Sidney to the ER. She was running a fever, vomiting, diarrhea and had fainted a couple of times through out the day.

Her heart rate was 186, BP had dropped to 75/32, had a 103 temp with blue cold feet.

It is a good thing I was scared to death and decided to take her in.

We were transported to Doernbecher ICU at 10:30 that night.

First we were told she had pneumonia and sepsis, then when we arrived at Doernbecher they told us she had toxic shock syndrome. We are still here, however Sid is making great improvement. We are finally waiting to move from the ICU. It is unfortunate that I needed to cancel my show next weekend. I am disappointed but know that I do not need the extras stress of a show.

Please say a little prayer for us. Life is full of the enexpected!

Julie, I am sure you are all in shock right now... things start moving so fast, our daughter was diagnosed on her 21st Birthday... the one thing I remember a doctor telling us, it is the best cancer you can have.. I know that sounds very strange but it is true. Be careful what you read on the internet so many sites are not up to date with treatments. My daughter is doing very good she is now married and a mother of two. please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. And maybe your daughter would like to check out my daughters blog and Facebook. Hugs, Diane
