Another ER visit last night

It seems that Briley has been "sicker" off treatment than on.  But we are very happy she is off treatment.
Briley went to bed unusually early last night.  About the time Alicia laid down in bed, Briley woke up with the chills.  She could not get warm.  Her temp was 101.7. About 15 minutes later, she had a 102.8 temp.  We decided then to take her to the ER.  On arrival, her temp rose to 103.1.  
So she got her port accessed and lab draws.  She then got a rocephine infusion.  The lab results came back and showed that she is positive for the flu!  
We thought the flu season was well behind us.  We were wrong.  
She got a dose of Tamiflu and after a call to the oncologist, we got to come home.  She seemed like she was feeling much better by the time we left.  Upon getting home, her temp was down to 100.7.    By the time I finally laid down for bed she didn't have a fever and she's been fever free since then.  
We were all suppose to travel up to Stratford this weekend for Brad & Heather's newest addition, Caleb's baptism.  Alicia and I were going to be Godparents.  We won't be able to make it.  I feel really bad about that since we already had to cancel Caleb's baptism once before due to sickness.  Ugh.  At least Alicia didn't have to make the trip to Cooks today for Briley's scheduled appointment.
