The Infection

Dad was moved to ICU Monday February 28th because he got an infection. He had been fevering the previous 2 days but this is common with cancer patients so they weren't too worried. The fact that Dad's fevers kept going up to 101 and 102 caused them to perform blood tests. The doctor saw an infection and a small amount of fluid in his lungs and as precautionary wanted to move Dad to ICU because they can hook him up to all the monitors for his heart, oxygen, etc. They monitored him through the night and he slept well so they decided they could move him back to his room but keep him on oxygen.
