Preston is still is running a high fever. Not dropping below 103 yet. It is freezing in his room right now hoping that it may help him a little to try and break it. He has diarrhea so bad so today they are going to increase all his electrolytes since normal saline fluids are not enough since he is going so often and now they are doing more cultures on that.
He has not got out of bed in 3 days and is still very weak but at least today a lot more alert and more talkative.
He is getting a blood and platelet transfuion today also. We are hoping that it will give him some more energy. Anything that could help him fight this off is great. His fever is eating up his platelets trying to get energy. 2 days ago his platelets were 72 and today they are 16.
We still can only give him tylenol which is frustrating. Motrin destroys platelets and since his platelets are so precious, they can not give it to him and the other option is only a last resort.
Today Stephanie turned 1 month old. So glad she is here but boy does this past month seem like such a blur. Can't believe she is 1 month old and we have not even really had a chance to enjoy her. Can't wait until we can enjoy everyone!!!
Thanks again for everyone's support and phone calls. We appreciate it and is nice to hear friendly voices oncein a while.
