she is on a cold air bed. her fever is now at 106. they have put a long gel ice pad under her and on top of her. they turned down the temp in the icu room. but she hasn't woke up since earlier today and they are giving her antibiotics and benadryl but no other sedatives. her blood pressure is very low and the white blood count is extremely high. doctors are concerned about brain damage though because of the fever and convulsions. when someone has a high white cell count ithere is a higher risk of death. she is still havng convulsions and that is due to the fever. I am worried because she got better for a while last night and early this morning. People tend to get better like that right before they die.
