Watching… Day 631 06AUG10
Joshua got up today and headed off to check out the Bucs training facility for a little bit. I picked him up just after lunch and he seemed to have had a good time but his ankle was bothering him. He and Jarrod came to work with me for a bit until my dad could get by to pick them up for the afternoon. When I arrived at his house after work Joshua was not feeling very well. His stomach was hurting and he thought he might throw up. It seemed to subside after a bit so he tried eating a little and drinking some water. He was very clingy and was leaning against when I noticed he was quite warm so I took his temperature. It was 100.4. Not quite time to call but real close. Renee and I decided I would wait at my dad's for 30 minutes and re-check his temp while she packed at home just in case as my dad's is much closer to the hospital. At the 30 minute mark his temp had dropped to 100.2 so I bundled him and his brother into the car and we headed home. Joshua kept saying that he did not feel good all the way home. He was visibly upset at the thought of maybe having to go back in the hospital. When Renee checked him after we got in his temp was back to normal and his stomach has been steady and not getting worse. She gave him some zofran to knock out the nausea and it worked. So tonight we are watching and on hold waiting to see if it is just a side effect of chemo this week or if he is fighting off something he may have been exposed to.
