well, earlier dad finished the last chemo drug for this stay in the hospital and it was one he had never had before and it was a one time infusion. then we got another unit of platelets which is good. after the platelets he had what we think was a delayed bad reaction to that last chemo round - he had really violent all over body shakes :( we were able to get him some medicine that stopped it fairly quickly thankfully - pretty scary. the meds however have a super drowsy side effect so he has been in and out of sleep. then they took him down for an ultrasound of his left leg and when he returned from that, his nightly visit from the fever fairy arrived with a vengeance - he has pretty bad fever and chills right now and they are about to give him tylenol because he is about to get another unit of blood, so hopefully that will get the fever to break soon! He is due for an MRI of his foot at 8pm tonight and then we are HOPING to keep the fever at bay so that he can sleep tonight.
In the morning we look forward to getting all the various test results back so that we can get to the bottom of this foot ordeal!
Please pray for the doctors to be divinely guided to all the right answers to that they are able to help dad to get better!
Love to all!
