Its been crazy.... we got home yesterday afternoon. Three hours later the hospital called me and said he had a positive blood culture. So we went back down. At first they were going to admit him for IV antibiotics.Then because there was a question of contamination and maybe not a true positive (but his white count was 17 thousand after tw0 rounds of antibiotics) they decided to draw two more cultures, give him an antibiotic shot and send us home. Right when we were getting ready to leave his stomach started to hurt really bad so they had to do an x ray and urine test. They think the stomach ache is cramping and may be from a viral bug or something. BUt they still don't know what is going on. He has the drs all stumped. Around dinner time tonight they should know if the other cultures are poitive. If they are then they will probably readmit him. Thank you for your prayers. I will keep you updated.
