Fever

Yes, it is fever time again.  This morning when Boeta opened his eyes he was nauseous and feverish.  Only 38 degrees, but that meant that chemo was delayed pending the results of a full blood count.  Amazingly his FBC looked very good.  His white cell count is 4.8 today – the highest since the start of chemo and just about normal.  His CRP is <5 (higher numbers indicate infection) so that is also good.  Chemo is going ahead but he is being monitored even closer than usual.  Please pray that he can finish this course of chemo and that the side-effects will not bother him.  He is very quiet today.  He is refusing all food and drink but that doesn’t keep us from trying.  Fortunately he is in hospital so if it becomes a problem they can put up a glucose drip.  At the moment he is only receiving saline, not glucose.

Wouter is off to work today again.  He is tired beyond belief but being the person he is he can’t sit back and rest when there is work to be done.  Please pray for him, specifically health-wise.  We can’t afford him getting sick at this stage.
