Still Fighting...

It was a rough day.
Found out Ben was RSV positive.
Not a good diagnosis for him.
He spiked another 104 degree fever.
He was pouring snot from mouth, nose and trach.
Lots of coughing and suctioning.
The doctors think he might have a secondary infection
due to the high fevers.
The next couple of days will be rough.
They are starting him on Vancomyacin,
along with his Ciprofloxin.
Hopefully it will cover any bacterial infection
that is secondary to the RSV.
Right now Ben is resting comfortably.
I'll update more tomorrow...
