This afternoon we got word that Gavin's blood cultures are growing fungus and a gram positive coxi, which is probably the same staph infection from his previous central line site. Certainly makes us sad but at the same time at least now we know what we are treating. Gavin is looking a little better after getting blood, though he still is looking jaundice and we were warned that he may even look a bit worse due to the increased blood volume.
Our plan right now is to go home in the morning. We will continue all three iv meds that are running now and also add the Amphoteracin locks to try to clear the yeast. The locks have never worked but they may buy us some time at home for the rest of the week. Unfortunately, because Gavin has yeast in his line there is always the chance that he will get very sick and need to come in to have the line pulled right away. I think at this point we will try to get cultures again on Friday and then decide from there what the next step will be.
I'm very ready to end this day. It's been a long one. Gavin is peacefully sleeping in his crib and Madi and daddy are safe at home. Now it's time for me to attempt a few hours of sleep.
