Can we agree that the “flare up” really sucks???
Gustavo had a fever last Monday, took him to the doctors and she said it was probably a virus. Well the fever stayed until Wednesday, took him back to the doctors and she couldn’t really find any apparent infection (throat, ears, lungs all clear, and strep throat test negative). On Wednesday afternoon the fever spiked to 105.1, yes that high. So I took him to the hospital. After many tests, ultrasounds, xrays. The doctor said it was a flare up from his UC. His hemoglobins were very low, and toxins very high. They gave him antibiotics to fight the infection. Put him back on steroids. It was 5 long days at the hospital. First days little munchkin only complained about his bottle and that he wanted to eat some rice and beans… what a champ, so proud of him.
Whoever had flare ups before, do they happen often? I’m not ready to go through this any time soon.
