Facebook update from Help Anton

Day +4 Anton was more tired today than normal. He slept until 11am and only got up because I woke him up. After he woke up he played on his floor mat for awhile, and did some occupational therapy. Then we played games together and he was once again ready for a nap at 2pm. He slept from 2pm until 5pm when I woke him up. After he woke up we watched cartoons then did a dressing change. His central line looks infected (redness is spreading) so they cultured the site to check for infection. After dressing change we played games again then read books then it was time for Anton to go to sleep. He felt pretty warm so I took him temp and it was 101.3 :( the nurse came in a took in a little bit later and it was 100.7. Anything over 100.5 is considered fever on this floor which means they send in blood cultures. Blood cultures take several days to grow so we won't know about that for a while but should have the skin cultures back soon. If his central line is infected it will have to come out and a new one will be placed. Praying for wisdom for the doctors and protection for our sweet boy. I will keep y'all updated. - March 30, 2015 at 10:33PM
