28 September 2009

Jeremy's high fevers continued throughout today, but thankfully his blood pressure remained stable. He still managed to sit up and play a game of Agitation (also known as Trouble) with the play therapist, and also to experiment with the electronic drum pad that the music therapist brought to his room!

As nothing has been grown from his blood cultures (thus indicating no bacterial infection), he had a CT scan (or fungogram) this afternoon to see if a fungal infection is causing his high fevers. However, the doctors are hoping that his high fevers mean that his new bone marrow is starting to engraft - and we are praying that this is the case! The proof will be if his blood counts over the next few days start to show the existence of some white blood cells.
