Day +42

Raul slept pretty well last night, but when he woke up he had a 104.7 fever. He threw up once while he had the fever, but luckily that was the only time today. At noon he had his GI scope, and we should get preliminary results tomorrow from the biopsies. We had been hoping we might be able to skip dialysis tomorrow, but based on his labs tonight that is unlikely.

Despite his fever still being pretty high, Raul did really well with PT this morning! He did the fishing game again, and then we actually got him to lie on his stomach for a few minutes in bed! His hips have gotten pretty tight over the last couple years, so we are trying to stretch them out. Surprisingly, he didn't even complain much about it. During the time he has been admitted, his core and arm strength/flexibility have improved, which is great!

WBC: 7.3
ANC: 5.5
