Sitting at the hospital.  Ty fevered 101.6 about 12:30 last night so here we sit.  His fever would come and go in the night, and his heart rate is high.  Averaging about 133 beats, but going up to 169 here and there.  When it goes up like that he wakes up and gets agitated so we didn't get a lot of sleep.  He's getting platelets again today.  ANC still zero.  WBC .9, RBC 3.7, HCT 31, PLTS 8  Weight was 34.8 last night and 33.8 this morning on a different scale.  I'm guessing the first weight is a little more accurate.  He has a cold, feels like crap still and I'm tiredzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz  He doesn't feel like playing Robots so he wants to watch me play it which is an exercise is futility.  I convinced him to watch tv for a while.  On a good note he received his antibiotics within the hour of getting here which has never happened before at PMC.  One of the other cancer moms really pushed for them to start doing that here since it really is crucial to get antibiotics in them asap when they are neutropenic and fever just in case it is something serious.   It's hard to be upbeat and positive when he is like this, especially when it isn't expected for him to be like this in maintenance.  Doing our best though and really we just hang out and wait right now.  Hoping we don't have to be here all week, but things aren't looking in his favor to go home.  He has one seg, zero bands, which makes his ANC a whoppping 9.  He wants me to sit by him at all times so I'm off.
Just so I can refer back later...he's on ceftazadime and clindamycin
