meghan got a fever again so shes back in the hospital tonight. her white cell count is down at 1 and needs to be 4.2. the doctor is pretty confident this stay wont be as long because we got her to the hospital pretty early on and shes taking a white cell booster. oh, and my girlfriend is tuff as nails. like so tough you wouldnt even think to spell the word right.
if you want to call, and you should, dial 519-882-1170 and when the pre-recorded voice comes on hit 3954#.

Meghan was hospitalized two nights ago with an infection and a high fever. Shes in an isolated room with an iv that is giving her antibiotics and reducing her fever. Shes getting better but its still iffy as to what the cause is and when she can get out. The good news is that because of being hospitalized she now gets the white cell count booster shots before her chemo sessions.
if you want to call her, which you should, the number is 1-519-882-1170, then hit 2 for the switchboard then ask for her in room 164.

Not doing so hot right now.
Had to go to emerg yesterday at 6am due to a high fever (100.4 degrees), sore throat and swollen glands (and some swelling and tenderness in the gums around a wisdom tooth that is coming in.
We called the caner clinic in London at 4am to tell them, and they said to go to emerg.
I went, and the first doctor told me that i had a virus. Ugh.
However, when the blood and urine reports came back, it turns out that I have and infection. Possibly of the wisdom tooth... maybe strep throat. I don't know. Anyway, I was put on antibiotics and told to go home.
Anyway, today my temp is 101.4. I am so weak i can barely walk around and my body aches so bad I can't stay still for long periods of time.
My mom called the cancer clinic again, and they said I have to go and have IV antibiotic and maybe be hospitalized overnight.
Anyway... I will try to update when I get home from the hospital.
