2019-04-16 to 2019-05-14 Living with Cancer Day 771 to 801

I am very sorry not having posted any blog entries for the last 29 days. Things just happened too quickly.

I will keep things short for today, having spent much of my energy already.

It started on Tuesday 16th April with a high fever, 100.6F. Dianne took me down to the local Hospital’s E/R. When I was first admitted they thought I was Neutropenic because of the high-temperature 101.4F, sweating and stomach cramps.

It turned out I that having some type of flu with a very high fever and Low O2 (Oxygen) levels. The temperature is almost normal and the sweating has stopped.

They ran some interesting test all day Wednesday to confirm that I had nothing other than the flu. It turned out they were wrong, over the weekend I watched some soccer and rugby with having been informed to have the Flu and confirmed Influenza A, thanks to the lack of an immune system.

As it turns out things got worse as the Infectious Disease Unit found out that I have Aspergillus in my lungs. Aspergillus is a genus consisting of a few hundred mold species found in various climates worldwide.

Since two Monday’s ago they have run tests to confirm their diagnosis. In addition, I underwent 3 CT/Chest scan to determine if the antibiotic solution they believe will control the infection.

As it turns out it seems they have found the medication that I will have to take twice a day for at least 6 months.

In summary, since entering the E/R over 3 weeks ago, I have successfully dealt with the Flu and Influenza A. I am positive I will be able to deal with the latest addition, Aspergillus Fumigatus.

The good news, the sweating did stop after half an hour. For the rest of the day, none of the three problem areas showed up. As to my energy level, it varied depending on my activity. Walking around to take some pictures took quite some energy requiring me to rest to charge my system back up.
