Cross your fingers

We are still at the hospital. The viral load went from 1000 to 2000 from Thursday to Monday. Zoe’s tonsils are incredibly swollen. As the Dr.’s say they are almost kissing. Her throat isn’t sore though. They took blood for cultures and swabbed her throat again because she keeps running a fever off and on.

Infectious disease projects 8 more days of IV antibiotics. Then the viral load should be low enough that she can go home with oral antibiotics. So we wait.
