Hospital Day 2

We are doing ok here. Unfortunately Preston developed another fever yesterday. So we are definitely here at least another day or so. He also is having more diarrhea today as well. The green watery kind, not sure if from his illness or if it is from the two IV antibiotics he is on, ampicillin and rocephin. They repeated blood work last night, and essentially it is unchanged. He was also weighed today. When weighed yesterday he was 8lb110z, and had on onesie. Today he was weighed naked and was 8lb7oz, so I am thinking that since this all started he has actually lost some weight. He was 8lb5oz on wednesday, and today 8lb7oz but has all of the IV stuff on him that adds an ounce or two, plus he has gotten a lot of IV fluid.
I thought I would wake up feeling much less tired today, but unfortunately that is not the case. Probably going to be anotehr long day. The WONDERFUL thing about today is that I don't have to go out in this ridiculous snow!!!:-) The town right next to us got 18inches, so I am assuming we are similar to that amount! Can you believe it, in october? Oh yes I can, got to love New England. But tomorrow it is supposed to get to fifty degrees, so hopefully I won't have to scrape my car off:-)
NOT loving having his blood taken

Much more awake and alert this morning:-)
My handsome little guy:-)

  1. I just read both of your posts. I am so sorry to hear you are having a hard time! My husband actually had meningitis when he was a little baby, too. I hope everything is ok. I'll be thinking of you. Hang in there. (((HUGS)))
