Fever Returns.....

Thursday June 7th, 2012 - We are back down at PCMC!  This time we are suppose to start methotrexate.  We arrived around 11:00am.  They started him on is saline drip.  Usually we can start the chemo by 11:00 pm. So we wait.  Jake is bored as we wait. We read a little and wait some more.  Then by 4:30pm Jake start shivering,  I can see his body shaking.  I went and got the nurse and he came in and took Jake temp.....yep a fever of 102.  So the nurse called the Dr. and she said no chemo tonight.  They came and took some blood cultures and they are going to let them culture over night and if nothing comes of it we will start chemo in the morning.     So now he sleeps because has been really nauseous, yes even before the chemo starts.  Hoping and praying his fever goes away.  They won't let us come home until he goes 24 hours without a fever and the methotrexate clears his system.  It is usually 4 to 5 days after the infusion ends.
