Hot babe

Just now, Beth’s temperature was 39.2 C (102.6 F). This is not atypical for what transplant patients go through, I hear. Some folks have wild swings at first, and then the swings level off after time. She is being medicated, and they have already taken her for a chest x-ray (to check for pneumonia); they are taking cultures to see what else might be causing the fever. She seems to have come through the worst of this for now, but she was definitely surprised by the reaction and very much frightened.
