Gavin is really having a hard time. Last night he continues to spike fevers as high as 105, with intense chills and abdominal pain. His spleen and liver and both now distended down into his pelvis causing extreme pain. Despite the platelets he receives yesterday his numbers dropped even lower.
The plan today is to give ore platelets, more albumin and more lasix. We will be leaving soon for the ICU where we will pull his central line, which grew out another set of Gram Negative Rods within 8 hours of last nights culture. They will then attempt to place a Fem line in the PICU and hopefully we will be able to return to the floor tonight.
Things are not looking good for our trip. Needless to say we are all feeling a bit defeated and very disappointed.
