:-( Bianca is feeling pretty sick and unwell tonight. She woke up this morning with a headache and the whole day pretty much the headache would come and go. This morning she felt particulary unwell and then when she perked up we left to meet Terence in the city. About halfway Bianca got car sick and I had to stop the car and she barely had time to open the door. She was okay for most of the day, but about 1:30pm started complaining about her headache again so I stopped at the pharmacy to get some paracetamol for her. She seemed to feel a bit better after this. By 6pm I had to give some more paracetamol and then it was time to go home. When we got home we could feel that she was pretty warm and her temperature was around 38 degrees (celcius) (about 100 degrees Fahrenheit) and we kept checking her temperature and finally when it reached 39 degrees (celcius) (about 102 degrees Fahrenheit) we decided it was time to take her to the medical center to get checked out.
It is a bit scary because a fever can mean so many things in our world. And even though we know that in all likelihood it is probably just that she picked up flu somewhere, I do have this nagging little voice in the back of my mind wondering if this might have something to do with her leukemia. Which I don't believe is likely given that her preliminary blood test results yesterday didn't show anything that might be a concern. But still, sometimes you can't help feeling a bit worried.
