Chloe is Well

I've shared in my previous blog that Chloe is sick. She had high fever midnight of March 20 and she had cough and colds, too. When her fever didn't subside, she was hospitalized on Wednesday (March 25th) afternoon because her platelet count was already near the borderline level and she was nose-bleeding from time to time. We were afraid that it might be Dengue Fever, but then the doctor ruled that one out on Thursday when her platelet count increased. However her WBC was still down, so was her neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes and basophils. Anyways, a possible diagnosis might be Typhoid Fever but just the same, it was ruled out later because her fever did not recur anymore. But whatever it was, I thought it was best to have her admitted just to be safe.

By Friday afternoon, Chloe was cleared for discharge from the hospital. Thank God for that! We still continued her medication and I am just too happy to see her alert and enthusiastic again. I'd rather that she was restless and noisy at home all the time than to see her so weak and lying down on the bed most of the time. I'm thankful also for my family and for all those people who included Chloe in their prayers. I thank God, too, because we only paid a very minimal amount in hospital bills. Insurance and Philhealth really helped a lot :) But more than that, I thank God that we're home after only 2 days of confinement at the hospital...Indeed, there is no place like home!
