Fever of 102

On Thursday April 12th Jake got a fever of 102.4. We were instructed by his oncologist to take him to the ER as his ACN (absoulte nuetra fill count) which is a count of the white blood cells was 0.1. As a result he got the fever and not being able to fight off anything we took him to the ER. They gave him antibiotics and Neupagen. Neupagen is a medicine they give to patients that have no white blood cells. it is very painful to receive. He was at Logan Regional until Saturday morning (April 14th) when his fever broke and his white cell came up to 4700. Home health came out and did labs on Monday and Wednesday and they called and told us everything looked good and he was okay to go back to Primary Children's for his second round of Chemo.
