I'm hoping this is the last update I need to do for a month, when John's next doctor appointment is scheduled.
He's fine, he's back to work and tomorrow he gets his first paycheck in 5 weeks. Thank God for his military pension that pays his rent!
They never did find out why he had that fever. It very well could have been the shingles trying to flare up again. He's now on Valtrex for a week (since shingles are known as herpes zoster) and Valtrex is also used for genital herpes, in case that drug sounds familiar from commercials (he doesn't have GH!). He got sprung on Monday night.
Tuesday he had an appointment with is oncologist and she is VERY pleased with his progress! He no longer needs to get blood work done since his white blood cell count, his platelets and his ANC numbers are all good.
So, late this afternoon he went back to work! He's upset that he lost another 3 days pay. Hopefully that won't happen again. He's supposed to get a CT scan in 6 to 8 weeks. With luck, he can schedule in the mornings and not miss any more time from work.
