elevated temperature

Fiona's temperature is weird, it goes up and down all day long. Her temperature hasn't really been normal since she got sick in May. This week she's been getting up to 100 degrees almost every day. Technically, 100 degrees isn't a fever.

Our Indy specialist says if she has a temperature above 102 we rush her to the hospital, tell them about her condition and ask to bypass the emergency room. Our Cincinnati specialist says that if her axillary temperature is above 100.5 we need to call them.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm thinking too much about a symptom and over reacting. We've never had a doctor tell us that one of our children has a life threatening condition before, so I'm not sure how to do this. Once our new normal becomes reality things will be better.
