John and I are off to the Emergency Room right now. He has a fever of 101, which is not high for the average person, but too high for a post bone marrow transplant patient.
He is going to get his wbc and anc checked first (to see how his immune system is doing), then he will be cultured. The cultures will see if he has a serious bacterial infection, such as "gram negative". That is what he had when he was in the hospital this past Thanksgiving with a 104.5 temperature and almost didn't make it.
So I don't know if he will be hospitalized or sent home. We will see. Could you all pray? Thanks.

Click on the entry above. It says it all. John is finally doing fantastically. We got some lab results back and found out how spectacular he was doing. Thing about it is, I forgot to mention the most important thing of all. John is in remission from two cancers. In the past ten years he has had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and also bone marrow cancer (MDS) that was going into AML (leukemia). Now he has neither cancer. Glory be to God, now and forever.
