hi linda i think she is fine,

the doctor must be following the fever. if the fever continues for more than 1 day, there should be adequate cover with antibiotics and blood and urine cultures should be sent to find any focus of infection. transplant patients are prone to infections we know that, and therefore a careful follow-up is required.

hope this helps.
