Admitted...

Gavin was admitted this afternoon to duPont after a horrible night of fevers. We are all so exhausted. It looks like it is the fungus but all cultures taken this week were negative. At this point it gets tricky because Gavin is on so many heavy duty IV antibiotics and antifungals that it can make it difficult for the culture to grow.

We have started Amphoteracin, which is a more broad spectrum antifungal. Hopefully this will at least give him some relief, until we decide if the line needs to be pulled.

We are all very tired and really need a good night sleep -- certainly not our ideal way to bring in the new year.


Thanks for thinking of us!
