Another exciting day at Uof M for Gary. His fever reached an all time high of 105.1 this afternoon. We are still waiting for white count to recover it is .5-same as yesterday. His mind is quite out of it- I will have to write down some of the things he is talking about it might be funny someday.
He was having problems with peripheral vision in right eye. A few optholomogists checked it out and seem to think that the infection spent some quality time in his eye and left some blood residue. They will continue to monitor it and it should heal with meds that he is already taking. Although it could take awhile for his vision to be back to normal. Just another issue not as concerning as lymphoma.
He had a MRI of head this morning and it seemed to be clear. A spinal tap to look for more infections will be done as soon as platelets can be raised to 50.
We are beginning to think he would be better off without any meds and heal on his own. But unfortunately that would take white blood cells and neutrophils which he isn't making. This stuff needs to go away as quickly as it arrived!!
