Another Day at Batson
Today has been another busy day, full of questions. The test Carter had performed on his intestines yesterday did not work. The test had to be performed again. Thankfully, our surgeon was able to come to x-ray and perform the test himself. He still ran into a bit of trouble and Carter ended up having to have a tube placed down his nose into his stomach. The test took almost all day. Once we got back to our room and settled in Carter took a nap. A little while after Carter woke up he spiked a 104 fever, his heart rate has been in the 200's and he has been breathing fast. They have given him some tylenol and are trying to come up with a plan to treat him. They need to make sure all of his intestines are still as intact as they were and that he does not have an infection. Needless to say it looks like this hospital stay is not going to be as short as we thought. Carter is still not eating and the 1-2 oz. I have gotten him to take have come back up within 30 minutes. Please continue to pray for healing and that we can figure out where this fever is coming from so it can be treated correctly.
