|C. kicking really well during|
last week's hydrotherapy session
I always feel ridiculous describing her that way when the fact is she is always "quite unwell". But what I mean is she's been running fevers of over 39° C and vomited several times yesterday.
Needless to say, to cap it all off, there were seizures. But, oddly, the seizures weren't any more frequent than with milder fevers. In fact, they subsided without the lowering of fever.
So today she'll be checked by her pediatrician who will tell us whether she can go to hydrotherapy. Tuesday is the one day that our local therapeutic pool admits females. We are all eager to see her in the water, the only context where she flowers.
Last week, while back floating, she kicked vigorously with both legs for the entire session!
Still no word from the local Liberty Swing distributor who promised us he'd deal directly with the reluctant municipality.
And still haven't located an Occupational Therapist or a Speech Therapist experienced in cases like C. who gives receipts. Without names we can't proceed with the pilot project we've been accepted to. The idea is to provide C. at home with the services and therapies she would receive were she warehoused in an institution. Currently, in this country, she can't.
UPDATE: After a thorough exam today, the pediatrician has declared C. fit for hydro. While he couldn't find a cause for her fevers, he recommended doing some blood readings, testing her urine to eliminate UTI and having her elbow wound seen at the wound clinic to eliminate infection. He doubted either is causing the fever. If the tests prove negative, we'll be left with a diagnosis of neurological fever that has climbed higher than ever before. Did I really believe there were improvements on the horizon?
