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.

Nichole...I'm so sorry you guys are still in the hospital. The pics of Noah brought tears to my eyes, what a little doll!!! We are praying everything gets under control and you can go home soon. Take care Noah from your little buddy Azlan BIG HUG!

Hi Nichole,

Came here from Jamie's links...I have taken some time to read about the journey you have been on. Wow - your family is going through a lot right now. Just want to let you know that I will be praying for you. May God be near & give you the strength that you need to face each day.

Little Noah, are you still able to smile and do your eyes still light up even when you don't feel well? I'm praying for your fever to go down and the antibiotics work so you can go back home to your big sister and brother. May God comfort you and ease your pain and discomfort (I hate having a fever...) and continue to carry you and your family.
love Ramona
