August 30, 2006 , Day 20


This is Menchie again at the keyboard. Ted is still fighting the fever.

According to Ted, he had a good sleep last night. He received a unit of platelets this morning. So the half of the morning he was sleeping because of the Benadryl. We had a chance to entertain some friends today and that was fun. But after the last visitor he started to have some chills and his temperature started to go up. He started to have chills that made the bed shake. So, the doctor ordered some Demerol. That really helps him, but he is very sleepy right now. They also gave him Tylenol.

On the medical front-They added a new antibiotic to take care of his pneumonia. They also order a Physical Therapy to do some walking with him, but they didn't show up. Hopefully tomorrow. The rashes are getting better. Some of his skin are peeling off which is very tempting to peel :-))) No, I don't want to get in trouble.
