Surgery within 24 hours

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 9:58 am

Well we came back to the hospital b/c Brock had a positive blood culture (gram positive cocci in clusters) from Thursday night. They repeated the culture on Friday and it grew the same thing. He’s been on vancomycin for over 2 weeks (an antibiotic that SHOULD clear the infection he has). Since it’s not working they’re going to have to do surgery tomorrow morning to remove his infusaport. He’ll have to have a PICC line for awhile until they can do surgery later to put in another port.
I’ll update more when I’m on a computer instead of an iPod and Brock isn’t demanding attention. 🙂


  1. Sweet Brock and Family, We will keep you in our prayers!

  3. Brock has been on my heart so much lately. Praying for you all and especially for surgery. 291 days — wow! Thanks be to God for preserving Brock during these many long months. Continued prayers for healing and the day when his hospital visits will be over!
