Admitted

Gary was admitted to U of M Hospital on Friday night. He developed a fever and with his neutropenia a fever is an automatic admission to the hospital. As you can imagine they have done lots of tests to find the source of infection. All of the tests have come back negative. It is possible that they will not find a cause and it will just go away.
The fevers need to be gone for 24 hours and his ANC need to raise from .1 to 1.0 in order to be released.
He is not feeling good. He gets lots of chills, cold sweats, bone and muscle pain. Although it is no fun to be in the hospital we all know that it is the best place for him now. Once again our friends have stepped up in a moments notice and helped out with the kids. We are so fortunate to have so much support!
