Well, it has been a very good day for Karen, with the boost to her blood. Right now she is running a fever of 100.3 but it has not changed at all in the last two and half hours. She is strange with the temperature this morning it was 96.0, but they did say when the regrafting does start she will run a fever. I have been watching her close and we will be taking it at the next meds. or when she does wake up again. She ate pizza, snickers and plenty of fluid today. Her hair is beginning to hurt, so it will not be long before she loses it, they said when her cells go up she would lose the hair. This is all the news I have for the day, I will watch her fever closely, and if it does hit the high I will give you a call. I think we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now that her blood is on the upswing. Will keep you informed, bye for now.
