In the rollercoaster of life there are up days and down days.
Today is a down day.
I went to the hospital this morning to pick up Gifty, she was supposed to be discharged today. Xavi (her doctor) greeted me in her room and told me the bad news. She is sick again. Her fever is high and her breathing too fast. The respiratory infection is back. It is so hard to see. Yesterday she looked SO good. She was happy and laughing and bright eyed. Today she is feverish and lethargic. It breaks my heart. The infection hits her so fast. Xavi has started her on a new antibiotic cocktail. She will be in the hospital at least another 10 days. Tomorrow we are going to another clinic in town for a chest x-ray.
It is getting harder for me each time. Each up day is euphoric. But the down days come crashing hard.
