Still Positive...

Yes -- Gavin's cultures are still positive for all of his unwanted guests, in fact we are now getting fungus out of both lumen which we thought one had previously cleared. We are waiting now to be called down to the OR to have his line removed and a temporary femoral line placed. He will also be getting some platelets as his low.

It has been a very long day. I basically been sitting here on this "bed" or whatever you want to call it, waiting for an OR slot to open. We did get to go on our field trip down to the cardiac lab where we watched Baby Einstein and got to pick toys out of the treasure chest .... oh -- and Gavin got an echo.

Thanks so much to those who sent the flowers to me today -- you have no idea how happy this made me feel.

I was thinking about you and was hoping that I would find you were home enjoying life with your babies. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family this evening.

Uh, it was ME who sent you the flowers...yeah, that's the ticket! Doh! I wish I HAD...that wasn't very *very* of me. ;-)
I hope your night is going better and that Gavin came through his line replacement well. I've been thinking of you and praying for you. I'm currently in L&D...wondering if I'm going to meet Brian tonight. :-( Let's hope not!
Hang in there, Karen.
