Reactions To Blood

Mike's levels dropped drastically low on Monday and he was transfused.  He had a severe reaction to the blood and started again with rigors (severe shakes), fever, and rash.  Later in the afternoon another fever occurred, which would not go down after taking medication.  They called an Urgent Response Nurse to the floor to get him moved into the Step Down-ICU floor, which would have a cooling blanket.  The fever eventually came down and he received a boost of platelets. Mike was able to receive the majority of the dose before another fever occurred and rigors.  We have a new set of eyes looking at Dad today, along with his team following him on the Step Down floor.  Hopefully sometime today he will be moved back to Oncology after his levels come up.
