Fever Continues

Gary's fever has continued today actually increased from the 99-100 range yesterday to 101-103. He is pretty uncomfortable with chills and muscle spasms.
Some bacteria was found a blood sample from his mediport. He has just started a new antibiotic to target the infection. We are hoping the antibiotic will work and the port will not have to be removed.
This is day 11 in his REPOCH treatment cycle. The doctors don't expect to see improvement in his blood counts until day 14.
He was able to take a shower and eat some dinner before the pain pill wore off.
