He has been battling this fever all night and all of today and has continued to feel nauseated. He won't eat much and there is talk of a feeding tube being put in but I pray that his appetite picks up soon so that he can avoid that. Lab tests have come back negative on everything so far, yet showed low platelets so he had a transfusion last night. I'm assuming that he has the same bug as me, but because his white cell count was down to 0.2 on Friday it is really just hitting him hard. He is asleep next to me, occasionally a whimper emerges from his lips from deep within dream land.
We will be here for a minimum of three days (hospital protocol for fevers). Maybe we will have the stem cell harvesting even before leaving for home. We will return on the 13th for another 5 day stay.
I really wish I could say that all last month was an April Fools joke, but everyday I awake to the reality of what last month brought to our lives (and took away). My heart is still processing it all.
