Well, I've been telling you how well he was doing. This afternoon, he told me he had the chills. I took his temp, and it was 101. His surgeon said to take him to the ER. He was admitted, and they still don't know the cause.
He has had more and more mucus. And, it hurts when he urinates. So, they don't know if it's lungs or bladder at this point. He has had all the blood tests, so they should know something in 24 hrs. I do know they caused him pain in the urethra area when they took him for xrays while his catheter was still in.
I am a basketcase. I'm sorry to report this after giving hope to those having this surgery soon.
This is my theory---the rhBMP used to help the fusion. It's supposed to be problematic for some cervical patients, according to the research.
Keep him in your prayers!
