Michael is doing better today...

Michael had a very restless night. As long as we kept giving him Tylenol every 4 hours, his fever stayed the same (at least it didn't go up) and he was a little more comfortable. Then, he woke up very early this morning and complained he was hungry. But, he lost his appetite in the short time it took me to fix him a bowl of cereal. So, I gave him some more Tylenol to get his temperature back down and then we got ready to head to chemo.

Michael fell asleep as soon as we got in the car and quietly slept all the way to Syracuse. By the time we got to the hospital, his fever had broken and he was feeling much better. We stopped in the cafeteria and picked up a snack before heading up to the fifth floor. Dr. Kennedy checked Michael over good and then check his blood counts. She didn't find anything seriously wrong and thought by the looks of his white cells, that Michael was just fighting a little viral infection.

So, he received his chemo (which he slept through as usual) and then we headed home. It is only 6:30pm and he has already asked to go to bed, so I would say he is still a little under the weather but on the mend. Hopefully, he will get a good night's sleep and be back to 100% by morning.

Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne
