Valley Fever-ish

Phil has been feeling under the weather for the last week and a half. He's had a constant fever and aches and no energy. He also doesn't want to eat, and for those of you who know Phil, he NEVER loses his appetite. He visited the doctor last week for a valley fever test, which came back negative, but he continues to have the same symptoms. He went back to the doctor today and the doctor took chest x-rays and wants him to come back at the end of the week for more blood work and then another appointment next Tuesday. Apparently, it's common for a person to test negative for valley fever in the early stages, but test positive later after one has had valley fever for a while. The doctor thinks this is probably the case. Please pray for Phil and that he will recover soon.

This whole situation has been tough for me to handle, along with the stresses that the end of the school year brings. I'm certainly counting down the days (17 to be exact).


  1. Yuck. Keep us posted.

    On another note...I found this fabric and thought of Ryan and his "gucks"


  2. Oh Jenny! I'm so sorry. I hope that Phil feels better soon. Scott had kidney stones a couple of weekends ago, and though it was now where near the duration of a valley fever episode, it was still a total bummer. I can only imagine the stress that adds to you.
    15 more days for you, 19 more days for me. :)
