Central Line Infection
Noah has had a setback. We were hoping to be home by now, but on Friday Noah spiked a fever. He was very sick friday and saturday. His blood cultures came back positive, showing a staph infection in his blood from his central line, as well as a bladder infection. The doctor pulled out his central line on Saturday evening once his final TPN was done and he was started on IV antibiotics. Yesterday he spiked a fever again, so they have changed his antibiotics and he had a good night last night. Needless to say, no more passes for us, so we are once again stuck at the hospital. He will need at least 10 more days of IV antibiotics in hospital.
