10/29 Evening Update

I’m running a little downhill this evening. I cut the grass and faired pretty good. Then, after lunch I started to feel rather tired. I decided to take a nap and slept pretty well. Upon arising, I felt I rather warm. The Vorlon Wife took my temperature and it was 99.7 degrees. She checked again half an hour later and it was 100.1 degrees.

I decided to call the oncologist. I promptly returned my call and I explained my situation. I offered as how I was experiencing no other symptom except the fever. I volunteered that my white cell count was probably compromised. He said with the Neulasta, my white cell count should be good.

He said to take Tylenol for the fever symptoms and then called in a prescription for 500mg tablets of Levaquin. I’m to take one a day for seven days.

While we were scheduled to go to a Halloween party tonight, it looks like the Vorlon Wife will go unescorted. As for me, I plan to sleep a lot. My experience is, when I have a fever, sleep seems to be my best medicine.
