View Full Version : Jacob developed infection

04-05-2009, 01:11 AM
Our poor buddy has been spiking a fever off and on today. Sure enough, one of his cultures came back positive. They started him on antibiotics through his IV this evening. :( They can't say for sure yet where the infection is coming from, but it was picked up in his secretions. Pray for quick healing for him. It's looking like we'll be here for at least another week, unless he turns the corner with this really quick.

Oh no. Poor buddy. I hope the IVs do the trick. Hopefully you know though that this can be common. It is almost part of the process. Fingers crossed that that is all it is for Jacob. Hugs, Suzanne

Oh no! I hope he gets better soon so you guys can be home. Gabriel just got out of the hospital on Friday and is still battling an infection of some sort. I can't wait for warmer weather!
