Jen shared this morning:
This has been a crazy couple of weeks, to say the least. As some of you may know, I have had to take Riley to the Emergency Department several times. Because he has a vascular port (which is how he receives his IV chemo) any sign of a fever means an automatic visit. He has passed all blood tests (CBC and blood culture tests) and no infections have been found, counts have been fine. So we have been told that it could be a viral thing, which has to be waited out. The other possibility is that it is his new medication, which could cause an inflammatory response, meaning that it is doing what it should. It is too early to tell. Riley will have an MRI Monday night, and we should have more information a few days after that. Please pray that it is the medicine working, and that he will start to feel better soon. Pray that my “mother’s intuition” would remain intact. Pray for the rest of the boys… they have been so understanding during these least few weeks. I am blessed beyond measure to be surrounded by these boys!
