Hunter had a rough day. He is currently taking his second nap since he woke up this morning. His temperature reached a high of 105 degrees, making him very uncomfortable. It seemed sitting in my lap had a calming effect. Sadly, he spends a lot of time whimpering when he is awake. The nurses give him Tylenol every four hours to keep his fever down and possibly help his comfort level. This is the third day in a row his blood pressure has been high. He received two doses of Lasix earlier to lower it, which created many wet diapers. Also, his belly is huge, melon shaped. Hunter’s Attending Physician ordered an abdominal x-ray this afternoon. The initial report did not reveal anything worrisome. However, we are awaiting further results.
