Home!! Definately one of our quickest admissions ever! Blood cultures came back negative, meaning no line infection!! ID kept him on IV antibiotics until the 72 hour mark, just to be sure we had nothing slow growing, but all looks well and his line is still safe. Everyone was quite stunned that nothing grew, as it is so rare we get a negative culture when he is sick. So we are chalking this up to something viral that threw him for a bit of a loop. After a couple of days of full TPN, he is back up to his normal tubefeed/lipids and doing well. No IV antibiotics to go home with, which is a bit odd for us, so praying that we can keep him home!
