Turns out that Jackson's fever, shaky feeling and cold was all related to one of the 4 antibiotic drugs that he is on right now. He is on the drugs mostly as a precautionary, because he has ZERO immune system. The one drug that he got is known to cause what our nurse called "Shake'n'Bake" in about 3% of the kids, and apparently Jackson was part of that 3%.

Shake'n'Bake refers to the shaking and shuddering that Jackson was doing yesterday, and the "Bake" part refers to the fever.

Thank goodness they have other drugs, and they took him off of this one. I just wish I would have known before hand, because he was a very unhappy boy yesterday.

Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
