Line Infection.

It's official, Wyatt has a line infection. We're still waiting for specifics, but do know that he's growing something. Our day was filled...seeing doctors and visits with those that saw our name on the door and came to say hello. We've been tucked in to our home away from home in the wing of the hospital that we're quite familiar with. Today consisted of a roller coaster of pain, fever and seizures. A lot of seizures came late this afternoon. One after another with little to no time between. Nerve wracking doesn't begin to explain the tense emotions hanging in the air. The doctors discussed several plans and after going over each of the options we decided to increase the IV seizure med early (remember we're weaning on to the full dose) in hopes it may help. And in the meantime ride out the seizures until we can no longer. It's scary and worrisome, to say the least. Our boy is sick.

I now plan to lay myself down on the makeshift parent bed and try to sleep. We were able to squeeze in a total of 2 hours of  "rest" (I use that term loosely) last night and I suppose I should take the clue from my heavy eyelids that this body of mine would like at least that amount this night too.

  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry to read this. I hope this stay is short, but effective and you all can be back home as soon as possible. Definitely get as much rest as you can, when you can.

  2. My fiancee told me of your son who came into her WCU class to read the other day. I just want you to know I am keeping him and your family in my prayers.
