Second verse, same as the first.

After my last post we spent more time in the ED for cathing before getting in to see urology first thing the following morning, where we were taught how to cath the boy ourself. Upon arriving at our appointment Wyatt was feeling really crummy. His pain level was increased and he was looking very poor. Dr. R was tracked down and called. We were told to finish up the training and if the cath didn't help his pain then we could head on over to the ED for pain meds, labs and cultures from his line. In the end, we came home yesterday late in the took a little convincing for the ED doctor to agree, but really there was not much more they would have done for him that we don't already do at home.

This morning as I was enjoying the peace that comes with all three kids still snuggled in and sleeping in their beds, the phone rang. I answered and was a little confused when I heard the voice on the other end of the line. It was Dr. R, calling us in to the hospital yet again. The cultures came back positive and is growing both gram positive and negative bugs. So, we're here. Hooked up with antibiotics and all the usuals. His labs are all over the place. His liver numbers are continuing to rise, including billirubin. He's tired and hurting, but has not spiked a temperature as of yet ( which doesn't mean much...but I'm happy that it's not 107 degrees.)
