Fever and trip to ER

We got home from Stanford around 3pm. Reba took a nap and when she woke up she felt a little warm, so we took her temperature. It was 100.9, and since she is severely neutropenic, we called the Stanford nurses and they told us to take Reba to our local ER in Watsonville, which is where we are now. 

Reba is very exhausted. She had 2mL of blood taken from her arm and another 2mL taken from her port. The blood will be cultured to see what type of bacteria are present. She is getting IV antiobiotics at the moment and will be given Zofran for her nausea and then Tylenol for her fever. When that is finished she will be transported via paramedic back to Stanford for close monitoring. We will keep you updated.
