Infection strike

Josh got the last dose of the Ara-C this morning about 6 a.m. and he got his shot of Asparaginase. His fever had been down most of the day and they were going to let him go home this afternoon, but…

Just as the nurse was getting him ready to check out, they got a call from the lab and one of the cultures had come back positive for an infection in one of his lines. They’re getting him started on Vancomycin tonight and he’ll be able to come home on it. But he’ll probably have to stay through the weekend because it was too late to arrange for his home care and get the IV equipment delivered today.

He’s still been pretty tired and is resting a lot while he’s in. I have to keep reminding myself, he’s been hit pretty hard with some major chemo. And we’ll just have to hang out at Beaumont a while longer.
