Paul has been in hospital since Tuesday morning. We were due in to get his bloods done anyway but we also went in because Paul had developed a very sore throat over the weekend and a very high temperature in the night from Monday to Tuesday. He was 39.1 degrees when we arrived in the day ward. They gave him a bed and lots of fluids immediately. He had 2 liters of fluids and still only went to the bathroom once in six hours! That just shows you how dehydrated he must have been! They are now trying to find out whether what he has is a virus or a bacterial infection. They say it looks like it could be pneumonia and they are treating it as such with antibiotics.
I don't like the look of him at all. He is very quiet, not very responsive, and he has a huge problem with balance and is dizzy quite a lot when he tries to stand up. That's why they are doing a CT of his head today as well.
Has anyone here had pneumonia while on Chemo? Would you like to share your experiences? We are so scared that he won't make it or that the cancer has really spread into the brain or something. I am charing off to the hospital now and would be so grateful for any posts later.
Paul has been such a fighter so far. It would be so terrible if this infection took him away from us now.
