At around 1:30 I spiked a fever of 101.4 and they decided to admit me. Once I got checked into the hospital we discovered my fever had broke. I felt pretty silly being at the hospital at that point, however about an hour later my fever was back with vengeance. I had fevers ranging from 101.4 to 102.7 all evening that I couldn't break, even with the tylenol they gave me. At 11:30 on Tuesday morning I had a fever of 102.7 which I broke in my sleep. I didn't get another fever. I saw the oncologist and infectious disease doctor daily while at the hospital. They determined that I had a staph infection so I had to stay in the hospital to get the IV antibiotics four times per day until Friday.
At around midnight the nurse came into my room in a gown with a swab. She said the labs were back and that I had MRSA. The swabbed my nose and she said infectious disease would be in again on Friday to see me. The infectious disease doctor was great, told me we could deal with it and hopefully keep me on track for chemo on 7/21.
This week I am going daily to an infusion center to get IV antibiotics to fight the staph infection/MRSA. My son is home from vacation this week and has been oh so helpful at the infusion center. The rest of the week is a busy week. I have infusion and doctor appointment Wednesday, infusion, labs, and CT scan on Thursday, then infusions early in the morning Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I am hoping that we stay on track for chemo Monday as I really don't want to get off of schedule.
