More Infection

I had kind of a mixed day today. My fever has gradually gotten worse and they grew some yeast out of my blood. Therefore they changed me to even stronger antibiotics. They took a chest XRay but I do not know what it showed.

My friend Doug came to visit today and we had a good time. Unfortunately, I had to take a couple of naps while he was here. He did get me set up to have video conferencing with a web cam on my computer. Hopefully we can visit face to face over the internet once in a while this way. It was great for him to take a whole day out of his busy schedule to see me on short notice. I am hoping to find a way to get my mom near a computer with a web cam so she can see me and talk to me without having to make the long trip down here.

Later this week, I get another bone marrow biopsy to see if the chemo is working, They will probably do that on Friday.

I had several more visitors today but it is getting harder and harder to see them when I am so tired and have a fever.

I did get another walk in today but can't quite stay strong enough or without nausea long enough to get more in.

I am still unable to eat and therefore they started me on some calories IV today till I can eat again. Then this evening I had another episode of vomiting. I am hoping that stops soon.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day. God gives me the strength to get through each day but I am weak and need lots of help.
