Admitted...

Gavin was admitted tonight to Dupont for sepsis. It's so crazy how fast things can change. We were all sitting on the couch watching TV when Gavin started to shake and turn blue. As soon as the shaking starts we know that within the hour his temp will be through the roof -- and it was. 105. I got him to the ER and he was looking really bad. His blood sugar was near 700, he was floppy and the palest I have ever seen him. Thankfully he is doing better now and we were even able to bypass the ICU. His labs are looking off, especially with his lactic acid at 10.7 and his blood pressures are low. Cultures were drawn, antibiotics were given, boluses are being infused and now we wait.


This really stinks. It's 3am and too late for me to sleep. Rounds start in 3 hours.


***sigh.
