Isaiah is Septic
Bad news on the home front. After a weekend at Worlds of Fun and riding his first roller coasters, Isaiah ended up sick on Monday at 4am. We took him in due to 103* temp and it has been a roller coaster week. He had to be put on the ventilator Tuesday at 1am, but has been more stable as the week has gone on. He was identified with strep, but the sudden onset caused the medical staff to check him for meningitis, which was negative. He is still on the vent 4 days later and they are currently working to make sure his kidneys aren't shutting down. He's been through this type of thing before, but it was usually because of having a central line. This was all just so sudden and really has us all on edge. Please continue to pray. We're hoping there won't be long lasting effects to the transplant, but we had early word the pancreas may have stopped producing ... Will update as we can.
