We've made it back home, but we have to keep him isolated until we can check labs at the end of the week.

Counts are up a bit today, but still so low that he is neutropenic. Nonetheless they may turn us loose tonight which surprises me.
Don't get me wrong I'm happy to get him home, but it was confirmed today, that it was only rhinovirus (common cold virus) that put him in here. And his immune system is only barely stronger now than it was then.
That being said, the fever is gone and IV antibiotics won't help againt RV. The counts are low but trending up. If all we can do is wait, I'm happy to not do it here. Hopefully it won't result in a quick return.

After just being in the ER, Robert had to head back on Sunday evening with a fever of 103.
They increased his chemo last week, which dropped his counts pretty severely. He picked up an everyday virus somewhere and he just couldnt fight it properly, so here we are. The fever is under control now, but they're keeping him on IV meds and isolation since his counts are bottomed out.
