I'm home! I'm home I'm home I'm home! *flop* I sleep until Monday now. Hospital sleep deprivation is crazy evil.
Just saw doctor. All tests/cultures still negative. They're releasing me, yay! No rush, of course.
Also, being taken off most of antibiotics I'm on. Should be released tomorrow. Rah!
ALL cultures & test results came back negative, so diagnosis now is JUST flare-up, with the nodules in lungs being inflammation.
Steroid injection totally did the trick. All my numbers are dramatically better. Don't need a transfusion. Talk of releasing me soon.
Diagnosis is now an opportunistic lung infection AND a flare-up. Got a steroid shot last night and at last, no fever.
We have a preliminary diagnosis. Chest CT & x-ray showed numerous nodules in lungs.Fungal infection likeliest. Targeted treatmnt to commence
My hemoglobin counts are way low. So low I might need a transfusion. They keep drawing HUGE vials of blood for more testing. Anemia paradox!
Fever crested 104F again. Applying ice packs now. Going to be a long night.
Still having terrible fevers. Last night hit over 104F briefly. Chest CT scan done, lotso labs drawn. Waiting for results.
Always find it hard enough sleeping in hospitals but seems like every time I managed to nod off last night, a nurse would come in.
Not neutropenic but doctor doesn't know what's causing the fever spikes, so in case it's an infection, being admitted to the hospital. Again
At Emory with
, waiting on lab results to come in. Of course, my fever broke in the car on the way here.
Fever breaking so not heading to the ER. Going to Emory tomorrow to have labs done, means not going in to work, dammit.
Fever spiked to nearly 104F. Shouldn't still be neutropenic so think this round of chemo triggered a flare-up. Talking to on-call doctor now
Crossover day at work. Managed a-ok until fever spiked. Now heading home with
all tuckered out and dizzy.

Wow, I"m not on Twitter so I didn't know you were going through all of this. So glad it seems to have settled down some, and I hope you can get all the sleep you need.

Weird reading it in reverse chronological order.
Glad you're doing better and home.
