This is getting very scary.
They are starting to run the anti fungal medicine which looks like a bag of yellow chemo. It will go in over 2 hours, he has been sedated and also given tylenol. I got a bit of a talk about the very possible risk of an allergic reaction which, if its going to come, will come about the 1 hour mark. He has 1 dedicated nurse over the 2 hrs and 1 back up in case he takes a fit. The drugs to tackle the reaction are sitting here ready but I was told it can be a bit freaky for me and Scott as he would be aware, even through the sedation, of what was going on.
Every branch of his IV pole has something hanging from it. This is far worse than high dose chemo.
Like I said, he is sedated at the moment and isnt aware of me bawling my eyes out and typing this. His favourite nurse has stayed late tonight specifically to be his dedicated nurse through this and his other special nurse is the back up.
If it does turn out to be fungal then this may be routine for 14 days and thats only IF its a nice fungus.
Half an hour has passed, just got to watch and wait now.

PS. Benji came to visit Scott before the start of the infusion.

Stephanie I know this has got to be very scary for you all .
I set here crying for you all every time I read one of these blogs. We are praying that this is not fungal.And you are right about wraping a person up to break the fever. But they do things a lot different these days. So I guess they know best .And that is what we won't for Scott.
Please you and David keep us up to date.
Love To All of You
