I’ve been under the weather since Tuesday. I had sporadic nausea and vomiting. Then, yesterday, I started running a fever. I had to go back to the hospital and spent the evening in the BMT ward getting antibiotics and tests done. The medicines they gave me were really strong. I started puking my guts out and had a reaction to one. I got all red and itchy. I was given benadryl which put me to sleep. I didn’t get out of the ward until about 11:30. I also slept terribly all night. I was exhausted all day today. I got more antibiotics and my regular medicines at the clinic. None of my tests have come back yet, so it is unclear if this fever and whatnot is due to engraftment or an infection. Dr. Horwitz said that he was amazed that I have been in the BMT program for so long and didn’t have a problem earlier.
I’ve spent the rest of the day watching 24. Thanks to Uncle Steve for sending a box filled with all the seasons of 24 and The Tudors. I also finished Nixon and Mao the other day, but due to my not feeling well I haven’t done a review of it yet. I’ll have the review up by Monday. Thank you also to Eric and Leslie for their awesome care package. And a final thanks to Aunt Ashley for the puzzle.
