At 6:30 tonight, Melanie started a fever. They said it is not uncommon for someone to get a fever, when they are having chemo. They did some cultures to make sure it is not an infection of any kind. They will know the results tomorrow. Melanie took some Tylenol, and the fever went down. Hopefully, it will stay down! Tomorrow she has another lumbar puncture. They are going to do conscious sedation, so we are praying it will be a better experience then the last few. They are also going to give her some fluid tonight so she will not be dehydrated like last time, and they will be able to get some spinal fluid easier.
Melanie's aunt Arlene and cousin Tricia came to visit her today. I'm sure it was a great visit. They are both such amazing people! It was when she had her fever, so no pictures where taken. They brought Mel a really cute, quilted bag that had a nativity scene on it. It was full of CD's, books, movies, and some chocolate cinnamon bears. Do you hear that Kim?! Maybe now she will share with you. :)
Good luck on the LP tomorrow, Melanie! Our thoughts and prayers will be for a quick and easy experience. LOVE YOU!!
