So along the lines of no news being good news...
Danae went to the ER Monday, where everybody was expecting her, from the infectious disease attending to the infectious disease fellow to the chief resident to the senior resident to the ER attending to everybody else. Everybody was very nice.
The infectious disease specialist spent 50 minutes with Zane, something I haven't done since medical school, and then several hours afterward researching what tests she wanted to order.
At some point, we will give you the very extensive and very impressive list of tests they ran.
Danae spent 12 hours in the ER Monday, was given the option to go home, which she accepted, then reported back Tuesday for more testing.
We still don't know what's going on with Zane, but this is only the second time in six weeks that he's gone more than two days without fever and he's now at four days.
All the specialist physicians have been very reassuring that we made the right decision to bring Zane back to America when we did. However, there are as many different opinions for his diagnosis as there are physicians who have consulted on him. Everything from malaria to typhoid to pneumonia to something viral to tuberculosis to who knows what else. All diagnoses so far, however, are treatable. That's all we care about. God is still good, in case you were wondering.
