His heart rate shot up to 220 and oxygen plummetted which meant that he was septic. We still do not know which type of infection he has but it takes a day or two for the culture to "grow"
Nurse Shannon and Gwen were with us all day in the clinic. Notice that David is wearing his new UVA baseball shirt and is cuddled with his VT blanket. Even die hard Hokies can root for Wahoos when they are getting such great care from this place. He wanted to wear this shirt to clinic to show it off to Ms. Meghan and the other nurses.
Mike got here in record time. My heart breaks that Mike had to drive here so quickly under such stressful circumstances. It is a long drive here, it is even a longer drive when you are worried and want to snuggle your boy. It was stressful here with David when he was going septic, but I was surrounded by two awesome doctors and nurses that were keeping me calm. Mike was driving a long road solo with nothing but time to worry and think.
and getting a visit from the hospital clown. All our prayers for him to stabilize were answered. Thank you dear friends and prayer warriors for helping us through a tough afternoon. Fighting cancer is hard and infections are definitely the enemy. We are beyond thankful for you, the amazing and quick care we received today, and our Jesus who comforted us with His peace.
