A quick update before I go back for Jonah's dressing change...
He has been much less fussy today, but very, very sleepy. This could be because he hasn't slept much in the last two days, but it could be he's getting sick. His temperature is currently 99.2 (a good range for a baby his age is 97-99), but this is after being unwrapped a lot today (many bandaging patch-ups) and having been on Tylenol all day. I just wonder how high it would be with no Tylenol and having been wrapped up.
His biopsy spot is also infected.
He only ate 25 cc's at his 6:00 feeding. Usually, he's ravenously hungry.
Please pray for Jonah - that if he does have an infection, the oral Keflex will take care of it. If it doesn't or the blood culture and the culture they did on the biopsy come back saying he needs something stronger, we will be facing the reality of a PICC line or broviac. Both of those are NOT good. The PICC line is very rough on his skin, they would have to put it in his neck, and it would be difficult to secure (thus lots of rubbing around and causing blisters, with a good possibility he would somehow rip it out anyway). The broviac would be bad because it would mean Jonah would have to be intubated (a tube down his trachea).
Please, please pray that the oral antibiotic will be enough.
Pray that Jonah is only tired and not sick. Please, Lord, no infection.
Pray that he will be relatively calm and pain-free during his dressing change.
Thank you for lifting him up.
