Total Extremes

I wanted to write a quick update and promise to update you more later.

Yesterday, Robert and I were interviewed for a nationally aired AARP produced for PBS TV program "Inside E Street." Woohoo! It was exciting and nervewracking and I joked with Robert that he was a TV star.

He loved it.

During the interview and time with him yesterday I noticed he was more sluggish than normal (dragging his foot more, falling asleep a lot). He stayed with us last night and I chalked it up to being tired from his big day.


He woke up this morning with a fever and coudn't do basic things like sit up without assistance or follow directions like "can you put your hand on the walker?"  My husband (wow, thank goodness for my husband!) and I got him cleaned up from his leaky brief and changed his clothes.  I gave him some Tylenol and had him go back to sleep for a bit but we're going to have to take him to the hospital. 

There's a problem and it just might be the fever but I don't want to take any chances.  Plus, he just had a fever and was on antiobiotics two weeks ago.  Something isn't right. 

I'll keep you posted.
