Still Has a Fever

Liam still has a fever, it's so frustrating to not know what is causing it. The doctors are pretty sure it's something viral, and he just happens to not have any symptoms that we can see. They have done blood, pee and poo cultures, almost every day, but so far the ones that have come back are negative.

Yesterday, we had a few "checks", including a venography. They injected Liam with dye and did a CT scan, to make sure there was nothing going on with Liam's veins. This looked good, no concerns.

The original plan was to start chemo today, so that won't happen now. Liam has to be fever free for 24 hours before they'll give the high dose chemo.

We aren't going to be discharged, so we now just wait for this fever to end.

On a side note, we are in a room at the end of the wing right now, and there are extra big windows, with a beautiful view of the mountains and the trees changing colours. The room is slightly bigger, there is a table and chair which makes things a bit more easy for myself. Not that we can complain, all the rooms in Unit 1 are large and bright, they are set up very well.
