The quick medical update from the hospital front is that I've been struggling this weekend with an unknown infection that has resulted in high fevers, low blood pressure and high heart rate. Since I have no immune system at all, they covered me in antibiotics while running cultures to see if they can determine the exact cause of the infection to treat any more specifically. Nothing back yet, and it's very common to never know what it was. In this case, I think it's likely that the girls shared a little viral something with me before they went to the beach as Clara was running a quick fever yesterday, too. They have given me lots of Tylenol, covered me in ice packs, and I think after almost 48 hours, in just the last hour the fever has broken....and hopefully will stay that way. I've slept a huge proportion of the weekend in that fever-sleep state.
We're going to tighten up our visitors to a very small number and have those folks mask in public as much as they are able to reduce the chance of this maybe happening again. But it's not at all unusual for chemo patients to have a fever like this, so while the team was concerned they weren't panicked.
Enough of the boring. Let's have some views from the beach!
