Gavin was doing better yesterday afternoon so we were able to come up to the regular unit late last night. He had received a blood transfusion as well as a calcium and potassium rider. Early this morning he got pretty sick again and spiked another high temp. Things are looking a bit more complicated that I thought they would be as now he is swelling and looks like he may need some platelets today as well as albumin.
Last night his one luman of his line clotted and we were forced to use TPA, a clot buster, on the line. TPA and infection do not mix and it run a high risk of blowing bacteria that was in that clot all through the blood stream, which is most likely what happened last night.
I'm trying to stay positive but I have to admit that I'm a bit nervous for making our trip. I guess we'll see. Knowing Gavin he could be back to his happy self in a few hours.
Thanks for keeping us in your prayers!
