Hi all, hope this message finds everyone in good spirits. I'm not having a good day today. Scott is in the hospital. He had a fever of 103 yesterday morn and onc nurse said to bring him right in. Well they hooked him up to antibiotics and he started shaking uncontrollably. He said he was so cold and his back, neck and legs hurt. They gave him a shot of demoral (sp?) and the shaking stopped. They admitted him in the hospital for 2 days to administer more antibiotics. They said he may have an infection due to the port. Then I spoke to him just a few minutes ago and he said his bp was slowly dropping through the night.

Is anyone familiar with this? His onc says it takes 48 hours for cultures to come back. They have him on a liquid diet for now. We would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks all for your support and prayers.

Linda (Baltimore)

Goodness gracious GREAT BALLS O' FAHR!

Linda - you hang in there. Funny thing about chemo - you kill yourself in order to kill the cancer. This sort of thing happens a lot.

Keeping you and your hubby in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope this email finds your Scott better today. Bobby had a similar experience while undergoing radiation and chemo. In intensive care with high fever, terrible pains and shakes. Turned out to be a perferated bowel. Hope Scott doesn't have anything that serious. Will keep you close in my prayers.
