A Sudden Fever

On Sunday night, he came down with as high a fever as he's ever had.
It was 101 degrees (38 degrees C), which is not a big deal for the average person, but for Hajime is quite high.
Even after we gave him Tylenol, it stayed above 100 degrees but after allo maybe because of all of our prayers, his fever has remained stable.

The doctor thinks Hajime probably caught a cold, so I'm not that worried.  I guess he's fighting the cold with his own immune system.
I think that's great, because having a fever means that the body is fighting.

This morning, he had a lot of blood drawn from both thumbs.  The person who did it today was good.  I think it's hard to take blood from Hajime because his veins are narrow.  Actually, he was supposed to have had his blood drawn yesterday.  The person who came yesterday was here for her second time, but she couldn't do it.  She had to ask the other nurse to do it. She got flustered and scared and just left.  The first time she came, she tried and couldn't draw blood and made all kinds of excuses. After poking him a second time, she was finally able to draw his blood.

He is also supposed to give a urine sample.  I hope the results are good.
