Ct scan

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 2:21 pm

Well, at least we were home for a month before we had to come back to the hospital! (Although I was really aiming to be home the entire month of August without a hospital stay). I think we’ve been here at least 1 day every month since April.

Brock woke up yesterday with what looked like a stye on his eye. This morning it was much worse and his eye was almost swollen shut. We took him to clinic and the dr thought it looked infected. While we were there Brock decided to get a fever, just for good measure. So we drew blood cultures and got some fluids and iv antibiotics. He wasn’t acting like himself either – just acted like he didn’t feel well.

We also got the results from a lab they drew last week that measures the fungal infection. It was MUCH higher than it should’ve been so they admitted him and are going to do a ct scan tomorrow. I still don’t know if it will be under general anesthesia or not. If it is he’ll have to be intubated.

Pray he does well for the scan, that the fungal infection isn’t any worse, and that this will be a short stay.
