One sick baby!!
Gracie has continued to suffer from fevers almost every day this week, so after Tuesday's tests didn't reveal much concerning infection it was decided to call the Infectious Disease team. The first visit they gathered all of Grace's history from this stay and order what seemed like every blood test under the sun. Since we still hadn't received a positive growth, today we took a field trip down to CT scan and got scans of Gracie's head, chest, and abdomen. Guess what??? Still nothing!?!?
Today Grace was started on two different antibiotics since her CRP level (a blood test that shows there is an infection) doubled, so we are just treating what hopefully we will find soon. Its just so hard because looking at Grace you can tell she is sick, she is sleeping continuously and when she is awake she stares with very little emotion. Oh how I hope that these antibiotics will work and Grace will be fever free for a week, so she can go to cath lab and then come home.
