Last chemo day

Jacob continues to spike fevers, but his labs are coming back negative for infection, so the doctor said it's a side effect of the atg. They have been able to keep the fevers under control with iv tylenol. He's also been nauseous and tired. His eyes are red and puffy and he's been very sensitive to light, which is a side effect of the fludarabine. He's on some strong anti nasea medications which cause him to sleep most of the time. Hopefully this will just be a foggy memory and he won't remember feeling so miserable. Chemo should be completely done around 4:00, and then his body gets to rest. Friday is transplant day.
