Feel the heat
Porter had a decent night but continued to breath faster than normal and his heart rate was up in the 150's 160's which is quite a bit higher than they like to see him.
His nurse this morning took his temp and it registered 39 deg C which is around 102 and his white blood cell count is up. SO- they are checking him for an infection. Could be up to 72 hours before we know exactly what is causing this but in the meantime they are managing his temp. So far, he remains active on the transplant list and we're praying that doesn't change.
