New bloodwork has just come back and his counts have dropped quite substantially since Thursday and he needs a tranfusion pronto. This wont help with the fevers but it certainly should make him feel less washed out.
I worry 24/7 about the 'r' word and when I mentioned this to Dr. Tebbi earlier (before the counts came back) I saw in his eyes that he could see that possibility too. Or maybe that was just my paranoia. However I just had a bit of a chat with him and he said "capital N, capital O, capital T, Scotty is NOT relapsing, there are NO flimsy bad cells". He then showed me the new bloodwork and started talking about numbers I had never even noticed before, he said there were two indicators that Scott was not relapsing and that his bone marrow was working. I patted his knee and told him how lovely he was. He just laughed his cute little Iranian laugh. Is it normal to fall head over heels for your little boys oncologist?
He is to be tested for mono (glandular fever to y'all back home) as Dr Tebbi said it is rampant in Florida and this could explain Scotts lethargy.
His temperature went up to 101.7 during the night but he has been given tylenol and it is now 99.2. I hope it stays down but judging by the last few days it will bounce right back up again. The general purpose antibiotics are being continued until whatever is causing Scotts punyness is traced so they can give something more specific.
Well thats about it. I am still very worried but thankfully Dr Tebbi has stomped out my main fear.
Im off to make some coffee and since this place is like the Marie Celeste I'll get it all to myself!
Thanks for checking up on us and sorry I was such a wuss last night, but this really does suck.
