Our quiet day ended with some bad news -- YEAST. Gavin's doctor recently read some pediatric article on treating fungus in central lines without having to pull the line by locking the line with antifungals. Because access is becoming such an issue for Gavin it would be wonderful if we can save this line. The only bad part of trying something new is that if it doesn't work we will still have to pull the line and pretty much double the length of our stay. He is feeling pretty well, still not himself but ok. We are also making some calorie adjustment in his TPN to help him put on some weight. He has not gained in almost 6 months -- we need to see some meat on those legs. He is now on D25 in his TPN, for all you who deal with TPN probably realize that it's a crazy high amount of sugar.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments today. I always love to read them throughout my long days here at duPont.
