To begin this post I would like to thank God for all that he does for us. We are such blessed people. We have the best family, friends, and church family a person could ask for. Without your support, prayers and always willingness to help us, we could not do the task in front of us. So thankful that God has placed you before us.
Well I went to work on Wednesday to help the dental office that I occasionally work for because they were short-handed. I haven’t been doing this since Robert has went on the transplant list nine months ago incase he needed me. WELL, I get in my car to head home after work, checked my phone and he had left me a message to call him soon as I got the message. So I call and he says; don’t speed home, but come straight home I am running a fever. And 20 minutes ago I was shaking uncontrollably. My response was, I will be right there. He sounded a sigh of relief, and I was on my way and yes I did speed.
I arrived home, came in the door calling his name. I found him on the couch all snuggled down in two coats and a blanket. I took his temperture. It said 103. This was after taking 2 tylenol a hour before. So I knew then it had been higher. No wonder he was shaking so much.
I told him I had to call Ochsners. He frowned at that. I had to have some direction. The on call doctor said I could give him advil rotated with tylenol. They had taken him off advill a few months ago. We did this every four hours through the night. Each time it was due he had began to get fever. But by doing this we kept his fever down. I also e-mailed his doctor who later called us. She was very concerned and ask us to come in to have some test done, as well as CT scan. We hope to have the results by Monday.
For those of you who have not checked into this dreaded disease, A sickness like this can send it spiraling out of control. He can be doing great one day and near death the next. That is why its so important to try and keep him well.
Dr. McAnnally released us to go home. This made our day. So we headed right back home. Thanks for all the prayers. We love you all so much. I will let you know soon as I know the results to all these test.
Believing in a Miracle,
