Well, a very slight setback. I developed a fever the other night, and when you are on chemo, a fever is never ignored.
The above picture, of course, is generous, the actual number of medical personnel I came into contact with after 6 hours was actually very scanty and they weren't smiling either. Actually, the lab and x-ray techs were very cheerful, the rest, not so.
So.... a lousy night was spent in ER, while they checked me up and down for infection, x-rays, blood tests, and blood cultures, urine tests, etc.... All my tests came back perfectly good, but since I obviously have picked up something, I am on anti-biotics as prevention. ER is a terrible place for cancer patients, because you are not exactly an emergency, you are a "Maybe" emergency, and immune suppressed at that, so in danger of picking up all the crap floating around the emergency room. But that is the system and so that is how it goes!
We've all had a nasty cold and cough.... and the combination of cough with my lung problems has been particularly nasty. But, hopefully it will improve soon, and I am thankful it was nothing serious. The coughing is interupting my sleep tonight (that's why I'm up and on here!), but otherwise I "feel" very well.
My good friend Janice is here visiting me fromWinnipeg, what a treat....
And, Mom and Dad arrive home from the USA tomorrow! It will be great to see them back at
