We have begun the Amphoteracin locks in Gavin's central line and now we just have to wait to see if it will work. Each luman gets locked with Ampho for 8 hours per day and then Gavin receives the normal Amphoteracin infusion over 2 hours. The locks will need to be administered for 7 days and then we will see if cultures grow after those 7 days. In the mean time cultures will be drawn daily to see the progress.

Gavin grew out another gram positive bug as well so we will continue treating that as well. In typical Gavin fashion we are already encountering our first glitch as his one luman will not drawn back blood, meaning we can not get a culture or draw back the Ampho lock. We will see what happens with that -- I'm not sure.

Everything that I previously stated about wanting to be here no longer applies. After 24 hours I have been reminded why I hate living in this place. Gosh, I need some major strength right now -- I just really do not want to spend another week away from home.
