Back in again

So we are back in the hospital. Dr. Colbourn was concerned about the headache and nausea which I guess are possible side effects of meningitis. The chemo "even" chemo rounds (which Tom just completed) focus on the brain area and though it's not possible to "prove" it's possible to sort of get a chemical meningitis so that's why we are treating for.

They're getting him some pain meds and nausea meds and then will treat with some antibiotics and steroids and he says usually steroids clear it up (but just in case it's something else, theyre going to use antibiotics as well).

They said we did well by calling and coming back in. Dr. Colbourn didn't want to give an estimate as to how long we will be in, so for now here's hoping he feels better soon.
