Robert was admitted to the hospital this morning.  We came to the Emergency Center at MD Anderson about 3:30am because his fever reached the level the leukemia patient instructions say to come in.  He has had recurring low grade fevers in the late afternoons into the evenings for a little over a week despite being on antibiotics.   He will be here until at least Thursday; has to be fever free for 48 hours before he can leave. During the day, his temp is normal; usually starts between 4-6 until the wee hours of the morning.  He is on pretty powerful antibiotics.  Chest x-ray showed possibility of pneumonia so they have taken him for a Cat-Scan of his chest to get a clearer picture. Will update the blog as I know more.
