very early sunday i woke up with a fever of 103.9.  my oncologist had me admitted to the hospital that morning. 

i have pneumonia, though of what type they’re not yet certain.  immunosuppressed patients don’t exhibit symptoms the way an otherwise healthy one would.  i have no telltale cough, just a fever that gets really high.  they’re doing lots of tests and once my fever is under control i should be able to go home. 

this is definitely going to disrupt my chemo schedule, about which i’m none too happy.  it shouldn’t push it back more that a few days.  my oncologist thinks it will be less than a week.

i’m really tired and very medicated, but i wanted to get something up here!  i’ll try to keep you posted, and in timely fashion.
