Last night he had a reaction to a platelet transfusion -- high fever and shakes, but once they gave him some steroids, thing started to settle down for him. He's very, very sick right now.

NO BIG IMPROVEMENTS
In some respects Johnny has had slight improvements -- his dangerously high WBC count is slowly inching down and some of his chemistry's look pretty good considering. He is still in pain, retaining fluid and sleeping a lot more. His lungs look 'cloudy' but don't show fluid accumluation, the doctor's think it's just the fluid he's retaining that is showing up. Or it could be the high WBC's showing up in his lungs.
