It's not only the frequency that's increased. The fever itself is now higher: around 38+ degrees Celsius, rectally.
I Googled about central fever and epilepsy for the first time today and learned two things:
- This blog comes up as link number 7 with a post in which I wrote about it.
- Central fever is associated with acute neurological patients; those who are critically ill in some way other than "mere" neurological impairment.
But I couldn't find any discussing such fever in a neurologically-impaired but otherwise healthy patient.
Until now, C.'s doctor hasn't been concerned whenever I mention the fevers. I suppose I could let her know about their increased frequency. But since I'm sure she won't have a cure for it, I don't think I'll bother.
Here (on the right) is C. during one of her three recent great days. I didn't dare post this photo for fear of the jinx. No need to worry about that any more.
