Amber: Stable is good.

*This post is an update in a series of posts on my friend Amber, who is currently in the hospital. You can read the earlier posts here.

**Also, the family has set up a blog to keep friends and family abreast of what's going on and also to help reduce the feeling of obligation to update everyone individually. Most of the posts will be duplicates of my posts on this blog, since the family has asked me to update the blog for them.


Yesterday, Amber spiked a fever of 101.6°F. By last night it was down to 99.4°F. They were glad it came down a bit, but she continues to stump them today because it's still hanging on. Originally they thought it might be an allergic reaction to one of the medications, but now they are not really certain. So all the doctors are still consulting to see if they can find the cause of the fever.

The doctors continue to check and recheck just about everything, and it all remains pretty stable. So this is good.

We'll update you, as we learn more or if there are any changes. We continue to be very hopeful.

We are overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love and concern for Amber. She is such a special person and has clearly affected so many of you in a positive way. We love her and are so grateful for your love for her. Thank you!
