Wake Up Call

It was about 1130 last night when Marco called, his fever had gone back up and he was starting to panic. He didn't know whether he was dreaming or not. DLP and myself got up and rushed back to City of Hope as fast as we could. When we arrived Marco was sweating like crazy, the nurse kept giving him ice baths to try to control his fever. Once we arrived Marco began to calm down although he continued to go from sweating, to his whole body shivering of how cold he was. Good thing that Marco was the nurses only patient, he needed all the attention he could get. The nurse said that the constant back a forth reactions to the fever were most likely due to a type of infection in his body; the results of the test would confirm what it is. About 3 am Marco had been doing better, so DLP and I returned to the hotel to get some rest.
This morning when we returned Marco was doing better, his x-rays came back clear and his fever has stabilized. Test results should be coming in today, will keep you posted.
