Yes I've spoken with the doctor. He said for Chris to start taking his Zithromax again and to try to get his fever to break. This happens so much, I know exactly what to do to bring the fever down. After the 4th trip to the emergency room, the attending physician told me exactly what they do for him and said to try it at home. Today we went to the ear nose and throat doctor, to try to find the cause of a cough that Chris has had for over a year now. It seems to be what triggers the fever, and fatigue. Only to be told it's probably acid reflux, or allergies. Chris has been treated for both in the past. We have seen 3 doctors for it, and no one has done tests to see what is causing the constant runny nose, which drains and causes the cough. I truly feel it's mold or fungus in his sinsus. I simply can't believe that they won't test for it, just as a precaution. Chirs has a cd4 count of 4 on a good day, and a viral load of 7,000. The doctors keep telling us that all of his problems will go away when his cd4 count rises. It's been less than 10 for over 3 years. Sorry for venting, but getting help from doctors is becoming harder and harder. They just don't seem to listen. He is resting now, and hasn't run a fever since last night. Hopefully, he will have some sort of appetite when he wakes up. He hasn't consumed much in the past week. On a lighter note, my father called, they are putting in the pace maker in the morning. He is not worried at all, and tells me not to worry either. I'll be making the hour long trip to my parent's home tonight, to do the bookkeeping for my father's business, and to try and comfort my mother. Then it's back to work tomorrow. I commute and hour and a half one way to work... so it's going to be a long week. Again thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers, you have no idea how much they are helping.

Carl
