Dr. Black reported last week that Mrs. Black’s white blood count was low and that she would not be able to have her next chemo treatment today. Apparently, she was admitted to the hospital last weekend. This is from an email that we just received:

BeckyLynn Black was admitted to UNC Hospital Saturday night with a fever. She also has a sore throat and is having difficulty swallowing… As of this morning, the doctors still have no firm diagnosis, but are treating her with antibiotics. Her temperature must return to normal and stay that way for 24 hours (without any medication) before they will discharge her; she may be in the hospital several more days.
