I thought about giving this post the title "Home, Sweet Home", but even though this hospital is nearly as familiar as home, I just couldn't bring myself to joke like that.
Spencer had a low-grade fever on Tuesday night. I called the transplant team and they had me take him to the Logan hospital to get labs drawn. A CBC revealed low white and red blood cells so Dr. E. called me late Wednesday night and said to bring him down to Primary's first thing in the morning. Several more labs later and she decided that he most likely has a viral infection and we would need to stay for a few days for some IV immunoglobulin.
Today they got results back from the blood cultures and were able to pinpoint the virus and start him on some IV antibiotics that should take care of it. Right now it looks like we'll be here 'til Monday and we'll come home with a PICC line in for a couple more weeks.
This picture looks like a sad Spencer, but really it's more like a bored Spencer. We're pretty much just hanging out, letting the IV meds do their thing.
It's been just over six months since his transplant and he's done SO well. We knew that we would hit our first "bump in the road" eventually. We're just so grateful that we caught it early and hopefully can move on quickly.
