Fever Starting to Behave

Hello Everyone,

After a bit of experimentation the doctors have finely got the right combination drugs (we think)! So, I have not been running fever for most of the morning. The only time I spiked a fever was when they gave this one drug called Zossin. The doctors decided to stop the Zossin and start me back up on Clindamcyin and Aztreonam which basically replace the Zossin but are chemically / biological different which is why I won't get a fever from the drug.

They have also scheduled a CT SCAN for today which will stage me to see if all my lymph nodes are reduced and if I have any issues in the gut (I don't but it will show it).

On Monday, I am getting a bone marrow biopsy to see what is going on in the the marrow.

If I can continue to keep no to low grade fever everyone around here will be much more happy because then they don't have to be so diligent about infection.

I can see light at the end of the tunnel but not sure how long the tunnel is.

Some of you might be wondering about how my spirits and attitude are and I can firmly tell you that I am positive, strong in faith, and feel very loved by my family and friends.

As always, all the prayers make the difference and I keep thank you for sending them my way.

Thanks for checking in,

Gary
