Not too much to report. Gavin's fevers are down but he is still not looking well. He is still very grey and lethargic. As suspected his blood counts took a drop so he will be getting some blood and possibly platelets. No growth on the culture, which is just not all that comforting considering how sick he was.
The biggest news of the day came at 3:30am when Gavin's central line clotted off during blood draws. His veins are so unhealthy that all 10 sticks blew almost instantly. We finally found a nice spot in his scalp, which so far seems to be working. There is a huge risk de-clotting the line with the possibility of showering his blood with possible bacteria hiding within the line. This has happened in the past so I have some fear about doing the TPA.
Thanks so much for the overwhelming support with this admission. Gavin had almost 500 hits to his page yesterday -- that's 500 possible prayers for our little boy.
I'll update tonight if there are any changes.
