Hey, danf, since you're a hunter, hopefully your docs have included a tick panel to rule out Lyme, ehrlichia, anaplasmosis and looked at other arthropod-vector dzs.

Keep cool, get sent home ASAP.

Yep, tick borne stuff is on the list. They are also testing for histoplasmosis which is a Midwestern fungal issue. Doc swabbed way back inside my nose today to test for viral stuff. Some of the tests are going to take a few days to come back.

Looking like I'm staying here at least until Monday. Docs still haven't figured out what's causing my fevers and I had another decent one early this morning.  :(

All the best, Dan.  Hope you will be back on the rocks soon!

I have certainly come to that conclusion, John.

Got put on prednisone and an antibiotic today. Had a fever last night as well as this morning. No real chills/shakes with either one, so at least that part is getting better. I've felt better today than since I've been in here.

Dan,

Glad to hear you had a better day today. Let's get this figured out so you can come home soon and spend even better days climbing.

Hang in there and thanks for the update.

I think that Dan went home today. not sure if they figured it completely out, but it seems as if he's feeling a lot better!

Glad to hear that, Dan.  Well done! :)
Hope you and the docs figure out the root cause and get that treated!

Awesome! Glad to hear you're on the mend. Take your time getting better. No reason to rush.
