Wednesday Morning Update
Hello from Mr. Jefferson's University. David's update is as follows:
--Spiked a fever around midnight. Tylenol worked and slept fine. Still unsure why this is occurring.
--Handled meds overnight better than yesterday.
--Pulse rate is still elevated and an area of continuing concern.
--Nothing has grown to determine which bacteria he has.
--Chest x-ray did not indicate pneumonia but he did have a little fluid on his lungs.
--He is awake this morning in an alternating grumpy/friendly mood. We are just happy to see him sitting up and talking with us.
Cute story. Laura has been talking with him about his birthday party which will be in July. He keeps insisting that he is going to have his party here at the hospital. While we cannot wait to get home with a healthy and well David, it is a testament to this place that he is okay with being here because he knows he is well taken care of.
I hope that the summer is going well for each of you. Thank you for your continued prayers for our little RockStar.
Doctors just met with us during rounds and still no news on the blood cultures. He is not comfortable even talking about discharge until fevers go away and the pulse rate goes down and stays down. The fluid on the lungs helps us understand why his breathing was labored yesterday. We are all thrilled with his progress but we will all breathe easier when that pulse rate gets down and stay down.
Thank you all so much for your prayers.
