This morning at around 11:00 am, Adam spiked a fever of 101.5F. So we immediately brought him into the ER to check. They drew blood cultures to check if there is any infection in his central line. Then they administered Tylenol and antibiotics immediately after.
Since Adam is neutropenic (immunity almost zero) and has a fever, he has been admitted into the hospital. We will be here until the blood cultures come back negative for infection, his fever goes away and his immunity starts increasing.
Just when we thought we were “in the clear” since he just finished his last round of chemo (as far as we know now). Sigh.
Please keep us in your prayers. Adam’s fever went away shortly after receiving Tylenol this afternoon, but just tonight around 9:30 pm it seemed his temperature was on the rise again.
