The plans have changed many times with in the last 2 days. At one point we were going to go home today and then at another point we were going to go home tomorrow. Now we are not sure when we will get to go home.
Friday night Jaden's eyes were a little glazed like, and one had a little discharge. I pointed it out to everyone and we were watching it. Then Saturday morning both his eyes were like that as well and his ear had a rashy look to it. Since Friday afternoon until now Jaden only wants to lay on his left side and when he lays on his back he cries really hard. Then yesterday afternoon we did a rectal temp. to try and help stimulate him to poop. We then discovered he had a temp of 101.7. He had also been sleeping all day Saturday so we knew something was not right with him. We sent in blood work and saw that his CRP's were elevated which is to help with inflammation. This can be common after surgery so we were not overly worried. By the end of the day yesterday he was pretty miserable.
So today he has been very uncomfortable all day long. He has had a hard time sleeping because he is not comfortable. We have checked his ears, did a nose scrape, urine check and all has come up good. We did an echo yesterday, a chest x-ray this morning and an abdominal x-ray today. All looks well. We are hoping this is just a little bug that will work itself out. Well, just a little while ago we took another rectal temp. and that came up with 103.6. With a temp that high, obviously Jaden is feeling horrible. After that temp. we sent in more blood to be checked again.
Now obviously we will not be leaving tomorrow due to his temp. shooting so high. We will wait to see what his blood work comes back with and determine what we do from there. So we need strong prayers that nothing comes back and his temp. works it way through. We were here in November for 3 weeks and 10 of those days were just working through the antibiotic treatment. My goal is to just get home by Christmas Eve. So we have a few days to get this out of his system. I will update you all tomorrow with what we find in his blood work.
Love you all!
