Last night Adam had a fever. As a chemo patient, fevers are taken very seriously. A blood culture was taken to check for a blood infection, and so far it seems clear. He was given Tylenol to reduce the fever, and put on antibiotics as a preventative measure. This morning his temperature was back down within normal range. He didn’t eat much yesterday, and seemed to be in more discomfort. We are hoping that he will soon begin eating more by mouth to avoid tube or IV feeding.
He is currently having a scheduled bone scan done to give a clearer picture of the neuroblastoma in his bones. It will take about an hour. He’s being very calm all wrapped up in the machine.
