Time for a short, frustrated entry, following today’s earlier happy blood blog.
Unfortunately, just after I got my blood today I spiked a low fever, and because I am neutropenic, I am back at Rhoads 6 at Penn. I’ll be here until Sunday (hopefully that’s my maximum sentence).
As you may remember from the last neutropenic fever almost two months ago, I am kept in the hospital as a precaution, given lots of antibiotics to prevent or kill infection, and massaged by Jacqui three times a day to literally rub the white blood cells back to life.
So come and visit as long as you don’t have a cold, ebola, or leprosy. Room 6011 Rhoads.
