Dr. Kenneth Burman, a thyroid specialist at Washington Hospital Center who is not involved in Rehnquist's treatment, said it was not unusual for a
cancer patient to check into the hospital with a fever.
"It could be a minor local infection around the tracheotomy tube," he said.
A more serious possibility, he said, is that the cancer has spread and caused infection. Other possibilities, he said, are pneumonia, allergies to
medicine or reaction to chemotherapy
Another source says that President George W. Bush was unaware of Rehnquist's hospitalization until it was announced.
Isn't George W so up on things. Too busy with Rove.
