She said her fever was what drove her to pick up the phone and call her doctor. Her fever even hit 103.7 at one point. She sweat through three sets of bed sheets per night while at Kaiser in San Rafael.
Stacy credits her medical team including Dr. Orna Hananel for saving her life...literally. She even posted messages of gratitude on the hospital wall for the staff on the 4th floor.
