It continues....

Joshua did excellent today, his platelets increased and is drinking more milk. Around7:45pm he was being very fussy, and the nurse turned his position. We notice that his right leg (where he has his IVs) was swollen and all the numbers (blood pressure/heart rate) were looking awful.It reminded us from last Friday when he was infected by the two deadly viruses. The nurse called the doctors to notify them of the situation. The doctor stated we just had to wait, it could just be from the position he was in or the infection may have traveled to his bone. After giving him some pain medication, Joshua's numbers went back to normal. The doctors are still wondering why his leg was swollen. They are keeping a close eye on Joshua tonight just to make sure the leg doesn't get any worse.

  1. Probably just the IV. Hope you feel better today baby Joshua. Keep being a strong boy so you can come home.
