I am still battling the same bladder infection which has been plaguing my recovery for the past 3 months. It's a very tenacious one which always comes back within a few days of treatment with an antibiotic and a test which shows the infection is gone. And lately it has produced an unusual symptom--temperature spikes that come early in the evening and can be quite high. That has been frightening. Fortunately the spikes have come down by late evening. Last week my oncologist put me on an exceedingly powerful antibiotic which he is convinced will eliminate the infection. One good sign is that it appears to have eliminated the temperature spikes. Let's hope that continues. Please pray with us that this medicine will work and eliminate the infection permanently. Hopefully my strength and energy and appetite (along with my weight) will return.
