Jeremy’s heart rate briefly went down to 103 but is back up in the 110′s. They plan to do an MRI at 5. His oxygen levels have been reduced by half, meaning he is doing more work than before and the ventilator is doing less for him. Things are moving in the right direction but slowly.
Right now it seems we are dealing with two things: 1) Jeremy most likely has pneumonia which has given him the fever and compromised his lungs. 2) Jeremy is having neurological issues that are severe. As crazy as this sounds we are praying this is just toxicity to the chemotherapy and not cancer progression. We hope test results will be available tomorrow that will inform a treatment plan. Please pray for a positive outcome to both of these scary scenarios.
