Yesterday's crisis seems to have subsided although a new infection could still throw things out for Pads. You may have picked up that his latest blood count shows neutrophils at 0.26 (count of 1.0 is minimum safe level), which is quite a hike better than yesterday. Temperatures have been staying below 38. Also, the breaks in his skin are showing signs of healing, so that should be a one-way street.
He's generally a bit better in himself although the morphine continues to have a doping effect. And, as his white blood cells come back, they may start to affect the complex drug diet, so this may not help him feel any better. The prediction is that the drool will continue to the weekend, which also means continued disturbed nights.
