24 March 2010


Jeremy went to hospital clinic today for his "6 month bloods" which will check how his immune system is recovering, whether or not he can start having his childhood vaccinations again, and whether or not he has lost his food allergies.  We will know the results in a week or so.  He also had his first of two Fluvax injections.

At bedtime tonight, he said that he was cold.  We took his temperature and it was 37.6 degrees, so we rang Camperdown Ward for advice.  They told us that we can give him Panadol now (when he had a central line, he was only allowed Panadol after he had spiked 38 degrees, had been admitted to hospital and the nurses had taken blood cultures) and to call them back if he goes over 38 degrees or has the shakes/shivers.  Hopefully, it is just a side-effect from the Fluvax as it is common to experience flu-like symptoms afterwards.
