Virus has decided to join the party . . .
In one of our brighter moments today, we find Isaiah sitting and playing Trouble! with a couple of the Child Life volunteers. I was pretty exited to see this after last night and the fever we've been fighting for the last few days. He did have a pretty good day overall, but alas again tonight we're spiking a temp and it's all the tell-tale signs a virus has crept in. He's having blood work done just about every 8 hours and his white blood count has been up and down but over 50 for the better part of 3 days (normal range is 5-13). The wash Sunday night was supposed to help alleviate some of the infection issues, but it appears VRE is the preliminary bug we're fighting. He's had it before but with the way things look I'm looking at a Fri/Sat recovery. He's fighting hard, and a visit today from the Orth's and all the cards from his friends at Church really made his day. Thanks for the continued support!
