Take My Breath Away.....

Fevers since last Monday 11/28/2011 seem to last, less than other days. The sweating, we thought had passed but the last two nights were even worse. The blankets on top and bottom have been soaked and it just leaves a silhouette on the bed from head to toe.
Marco's right leg has been swollen for the last past 3 days with some edema, which means that if I grab anywhere on his leg I leave a deep impression of my fingers on his leg. Could be from water retention or who knows.
Marco's seemed to have some energy the last two days where he went to go get the mail and of course has shortness of breath by the time he comes back in the house, took out the trash and again losing his breath in the process. We did manage to get him out of the house the other day to take a small walk in Target. That just lead to him feeling really tired and out of breath but he would say he was fine. As he is trying to catch his breath.
Tonight he went to go take a shower and he came out just winded, you could see in his face he was having trouble trying to catch his breath. He still tries to do the most he can in the day which is good but he pays for it later, which is not good.
He says he needs to take it easy now, taking a breath is a challenge. Says the man who wanted to race me to the door, to the car, to the truck , yeah right ......
Hoping, Marco has a better night tonight, so far fever is up a bit and started to sweat early today so will see how it goes tonight.
