Fever

Rachel called me late tonight and told me Kevin's been admitted to the BMT floor. Unfortunately for the 3rd straight round Kevin has a fever before his counts came back up. I don't know details, but I guess he's pretty out of it. I hope and pray it's not a bad infection. I still don't know if I'm going to fly out tomorrow or run the race Saturday morning---kind of a moral dilema, as the race benefits brain tumor research at St. Jude. She's assured me he's okay, but he'll be in the hospital until his ANC is above 500. I'll fly out and join my hospital roomate, either Friday or Saturday. My sister is spending the night with him tonight. I'll make sure to keep everybody posted as I hear more.

Take Care,

Eric

So sorry to hear that Kevin has fever again! Poor guy really has been run through the wringer. We will keep him in our prayers that he can rebound from this last round and the fever. As was written, you guys are 3/4 of the way done now. Not much longer and then you can journey home and focus on resting and healing and being a family. You're in the home stretch now!

Your friends,
Will, Tae, Ethan and Sean :)

Hey I am so sorry to hear about Kevin's fever. He looked so good in the med room yesterday. I hope he is feeling better. If you need anything please call or email me. Hope Laura has a safe trip home. I know it has to be hard for her to leave with him feeling bad. We really enjoyed visiting with ya'll in the med room. Hope his fever comes down and counts go up fast. Much love, Terri and Heather
