Update...

Gavin continues to be very sick. We started having issues with low blood pressures and have been working to get them up with extra bolus' of fluid. Gavin will be receiving blood in the next hour as his counts has dropped. We already have a positive culture for gram negative rods -- the yucky type of bugs.

The plan right now is to continue all 5 antibiotic infusions, give blood, give lasix to help him pee, repeat all his labs and hopefully get him feeling better.

Thanks for your prayers and encouragement -- it makes this chaos a lot easier!
