Turned out it was brain cancer.
We never knew the exact extent of my husband's cancer. They said it started in the kidney and spread to the lung but they did not scan anywhere else and no biopsy was performed because he didn't want one. His mind was mostly okay but there were a few times I wondered if it hadn't spread further than we knew about.

Thanks, but this is not my question or concern.

Why does she have such a sudden change in temp. now?

I mean, what happened to her body to cause her to not have her heat set on 84 when she gets back home?

She has been home from the hospital for several weeks now.

Well, since "bacteria" is the plural form of bacterium, your sentence should have been written as:
A virus or a bacterium is the cause.
Or, alternatively, you might have written something like:
Either viruses or bacteria are the cause.

However, about 99% of the population seems to be unaware that "bacteria" is the plural form of "bacterium", so I am not really faulting you.
