Nick has not had a good night. Yesterday was SO awesome! he was on the radio for the NC Children’s Promise. He met so many people and he has been promised concert tickets and an autographed Marty Fish tennis racket.
He texted me at 1:30 this morning to tell me that he was carrying a low grade temperature. This morning he told me he was short of breath and he was coughing more and coughing up junk.
The doctors are running a bunch of tests. They are testing for flu, H1N1, and they are going to check just to make sure he doesn’t have an infection in his port a catheter. They are pretty sure he doesn’t.
I just talked to the doc. The nurse didn’t tell her that Nick was short of breath. He is on precautions now because of the fever. All visitors have to wear a gown, gloves, and a mask. He can’t leave the room until he is off precautions or until he is discharged until he has been without treat temp for 24 hrs. The doc also said that if his lung function was below 50, he probably would not go home. Needless to say he is not happy. They are so busy here so he still has not had the test yet. Praying for good results!
