Journal entry by Beth Moore

Fever of unknown origin. That was the official diagnosis reached by the team of physicians charged with Harry's care during his recent 12-day hospital visit. While not uncommon with lymphoma, the concern was that the fever might indicate an infection or additional cancer but thankfully the testing did not reveal either. The troubling symptoms had started two days after Harry had been taken off steroids and when the team eventually put him back on those, his fever disappeared and his mobility began to return. We were able to come home on Wednesday and so far he's had no fever and his mobility has greatly improved! Today he had his tenth radiation treatment and is feeling good. Aren't we lucky he hasn't experienced any major side effects? Our new routine will include 3 more weeks of outpatient radiation treatment every weekday along with home health physical therapy twice a week. In the face of all this, Harry's positive attitude has remained steady which keeps me from going off the rails (I know it surprises all of you that I might be prone to do that!) With this latest hospital admission behind us, we are so grateful to be home where Harry can rest, build up his strength and watch the Clemson game on his own TV! As we cheer the Tigers on tomorrow, we'll also be doing cheers of thanks for all the love, encouragement, cards, calls and visits we have received from you these past months!
