Hospital Update

We spent the night in the infusion center. Ben received two different types of antibiotics and we were hopeful that they were working as his temperature went down in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, it went back up to 101 by about 7:00. Also, the blood work came back and Ben has a bacterial infection so he will be admitted to the Pediatric floor even if his temperature stays back down. We have not been given any predictions on how long he will need to stay but we are really hoping it won't be for very long this time!

On the positive side, we received a report on Ben's bloodwork this morning and his numbers look good! For the moment, he is not neutropenic. We are excited - maybe now we can go to some stores for some back to school shopping after he is released from the hospital!
