Fever, Fever, Go Away

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 8:47 pm

The fever continues but the oncologist gave us a break today and said we could wait until tomorrow to bring him in for more cultures.  Praying that it goes away overnight and that we can get some rest.

Also?  The diarrhea is back and worse than before.  I know it’s supposed to cause constipation, but my money is on the chemo.  (vincristine and methotrexate)


  1. I’ve read that both meds can cause diarrhea. Hopefully that’s the only cause of his diarrhea. I totally agree with the fever, fever, go away. I am praying for the same thing for Tessa.

  3. Vanessa,

    Just curious, have they check his bowels with x-ray or ct scan? As I am sure they have. Do you have any flanders with you to put on his bottom? This seems to work here at my hospital where I work. I bet my money on the chemo also.

    As always I am praying for you and everyone in your families. I will pray that the fever will go away. I can only imagine how tired you and your husband are. Just to let you know, a song pop in head as I am writing this you, and I know that you are a strong woman and your husband is a strong man. The song is “Have Faith in God”.

    You have and still is showing me how special you and your family are, and how powerful God is, no matter what each and everyone of us are going through in life. But by the grace of God, you and I are not alone. Thank you for sharing your life and struggle with me and everyone else. As always I will be praying for you, your husband, Jaycee, and Brock the Rock!

    • yep, they’ve checked with x-ray and ct (and something else that i can’t remember right now…something like a live x-ray). and yes we’ve tried flanders and it works pretty well. right now we’re using xenaderm and lotrimin. thank you for the tips!

  5. Hey Vanessa-

    Sorry you guys are still dealing with the fever. I hope it’s just a small stomach bug and will go away soon. Just on a side note, my mom takes methotrexate for her Rhuemotoid arthritis and it ALWAYS upsets her stomach for the first 2 days after she takes it. I hope thats all it is. Maybe it’s worse for Brock because he is not getting the normal amount of solid food that a toddler his age would get? I hope things begin to settle down soon. We think of you all often and enjoy getting these updates.

  6. Both of those cause Kaden to have horrible diarrhea, he has never been constipated thru any of this treatments we have to use childrens Imodium on a regular basis with him. So i’m bettin your right about the chemo.

  7. I am sorry you had to be admitted. I hope its a quick stay and they are able to help his diarrhea and fever. Diarrhea is no fun for the Brockstar! I hope his butt is doing okay with it. Love you guys!
