Day +12

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.


  1. My thoughts are with you constantly x

  2. Tous les matins, je viens lire le blog d'Hunter et tous les matins, je regarde mes enfants, en mesurant à sa juste valeur le bonheur de les savoir en bonne santé et la fragilité de cet état.
    Tiens bon Hunter, nous t'envoyons toutes nos pensées et tous nos espoirs de jours plus doux...
    Mille bisous tous doux,
    Sylvie et les garçons

  3. Hope that these fevers recede and Hunter is comfortable and engrafted very soon.

    WIth prayers and best wishes,


  4. Love and prayers. Thinking of you always.
