And we don't know why. He came home last night from work at his normal time with a fever and the chills so bad his teeth were chattering. Other than that (like it wasn't enough!) he had no other symptoms. Achy yes, from the fever and shaking like you wouldn't believe from the chills but nothing else. No vomiting, no sore throat, nothing like you would think from a bug or the flu. When I got up this morning for work, he was burning up so I called and got him into our doctor at 1:15 today. Around 3:30 I started calling and texting him but got no response. I called the dr's office and they told me that the doctor had sent husband to the ER. (The office is connected to the hospital). I called the ER and talked to husband who made it out like no big deal. And it's not in a way. But....he has a fever (as of about an hour ago it was 101.2), horrible chills, an elevated white blood cell count (17,000) and pain/burning when he urinates. Those are his only symptoms. No pain other than your usual fever aches, no rash, no obvious sign of infection, nothing. They did a CT scan to check for kidney stones, gall stones and apendicitis and it all came back normal. They tested for the Swine Flu and that came back fine. They've taken a lot of blood and urine....no bladder or kidney infection. His doctor came around while husband was still in the ER and did another quick check and decided to check husband's prostate. That was a little tender and maybe just a bit swollen so Prostitis is a possibility but they aren't sure. They also did a chest x-ray too but so far.....they don't know why his blood count is off. So for now, he's on IV antibiotic (second dose when I left a little after 9 tonight) and they will recheck his counts in the morning and see what the blood tests show. I'm going back up in the morning first thing so I can be there when the doctor does rounds. Hopefully we'll know more then.
