Noah also recieved another blood transfusion today as his hemoglobin had dropped again. His color is much improved this evening. And he is still a little platelet eater. He recieved 2 units of platelets this morning and another 2 units this evening. Our doctor is suspecting that he has developed antibodies to the platelets, but we are still waiting for results from the blood services lab to confirm this. If this is the case, then they can look for donors to match him and that should help his body hold on to the platelets. (Thanks Anne for that comment. It was exactly what we had been discussing today and I do hope that this is the answer).
Blood cultures from yesterday have also come back growing 2 NEW bugs!! A new gram positive and now a gram negative. The lab hasn't confirmed exactly what type yet, but we have added even more antibiotic coverage. Not sure there is much else he could grow at this point! The good news is that we are no longer getting positive cultures for yeast, so it must finally be under control with the antifungals.
Praying for a better night. Please also pray for Kailyn & Joshua who understand so much more than we give them credit for and are having a difficult time as well. Noah continues to fight, and as long as he does, we will fight too.
