+239 Still Febrile

Weight - 11.9 - He's not eating much

A CBC test was not done so I'm not sure what his blood counts are.

His temps still vacillate between 101-104. Dr. Dvorak feels he needs to do more tests. They are not invasive by any means. Today he will have an Ecocardiogram to make sure his Ventricular Septal Defect or heart is not infected. Then he will have a Renal Ultrasound to see if the Urinary Tract Infection has spread, possibly causing a pocket of puss on the kidney which is not responding to the antibiotic. They will take more blood to check for viral PCRs, which include things like cytomeglovirus (CMV), Eptein-Barr Virus (EBV) and HHV-6.

There is no telling when we might go home. Please pray for our family to have an inspiring Passover this weekend with all of this going on. It's hard to concentrate on my spiritual growth. Although, I'm learning a lot about patience. They are doing construction under our floor which includes drilling almost all day long. It's not peaceful here by any means. I eagerly look forward to a quiet weekend.
