Last night was rough. Not because Gideon was super sick, but because he was super uncomfortable. If you follow my Facebook page, then you saw that we were up most of the night because Gideon likes to sleep on his tummy…and then his side…and then his tummy-side-back-tummy-back-side…. you get the idea.
As of this morning, the rash and fever are gone. They cut back on his IV fluids hoping to get him to eat more. In fact, that’s the only reason we weren’t discharged this morning. They wanted to keep him for the majority of the day, to give him time to improve his fluid intake. And thankfully, it’s looking like we will be going home sometime today.
We won’t know anything about the results from the nasal swab or the urine culture until tomorrow or the next day. As far as his blood work goes, they aren’t sure if his low platelet count is due to the virus he has, or the genetic disorder, or something else entirely. So we will come back in 4 weeks to have more blood work done when he is healthy again.
For now, we will be glad just to be home. Thank you for all the texts, emails, phone calls, and sweet gestures. We are glad to know that so many people are praying for our little guy.
He’s a trooper for sure.
