+81 Days - Back in the Hospital

Last night David started vomiting, then had a fever of 100.7 at 5:00am. The protocol is for me to take him to emergency for any fever over 100.4. Michael came to RMH to pick us up and is hanging out with us. So, here we are. They have a state-of-the-art pediatric wing in the emergency room w/ Internet access and everything else we need. They took blood samples from his Hickman line and peripheral blood. His lungs sound a little raspy so he will get a chest x-ray. He will be admitted to 2 North for at least 48 hours. They started IV hydration and antibiotics. He is keeping breastmilk down and is talkative. We are not sure why he is ill. He is at +81 Days and so close to +100! I'm sure everything will be fine.
