Radiation Day 10

Greco was so cranky after treatment today. He screamed and cried and tried to get out of his car seat. He pulled my hair and hit me and even drew blood when he bit my shoulder. He opened the garage door and tried to run into the street!!! Oh, dear what is wrong??? For an hour he pitched a fit. It took me and all the kids to keep him safe. Finally he stopped and just put his head in my lap staring into space. He was very tired. He finally fell asleep. I held him the whole time. Around 4 I noticed his body was getting warmer and warmer. I took his temperature and it was 100.5. So I called the doctor and they said to bring him to the ER. Not the ER a mile from my house, but the one in St Pete, over an hour away. I met Troy on the way and he took Nic and Jac. I took Vince and Greco with me. We arrived at the hospital by 7:00, traffic was terrible and it was pouring!! Because he is an oncology patient, he was seen immediately, that is a blessing! They took lots of blood, ran lots of tests and gave him Tylenol, we were sent home at 9:15. I think he is ok. Temp was back up when we got home, had to sit by him all night. Worried!!
