So as planned they took out my central line yesterday afternoon and I have not had a fever since and feel much better! So at this point I'm almost positive that the central line was the source of the infection. I will get a new central line sometime before the transplant. I have had a bad cough which is now the focus. They even put me on oxygen because I can't breathe deep without coughing. The idea of going on Oxygen bothered me at first but it has actually made me much more comfortable. Today I will have a CT scan of my chest and tomorrow they will do a procedure to biopsy "anything" in my lungs. I also woke up this morning with some mouth sores which is surprising because I have not had many problems with them before. Overall, I'm feeling really well - I just need to get rid of this cough.
