I should have updated this yesterday, but I was too busy running around preparing for what I was told would me 10+ days in the hospital.
Wednesday the doctors came in and informed us that Brinley's blood cultures came back positive. There is an infection gr owning in her central line leading to her heart. So they switched up the antibiotics to two different kinds, one is very 6 hours, the other is every 8 hours. The type of infection is gram positive cocci in chains, which could be a number of different infections. We were told yesterday that nothing had come back from the labs, so my mind was in over drive on how I was going to manage the next 10 days in the hospital.
I ran home and packed a bag for Carter because he is now being shipped off to Gramma and Papa's house. Unfortunately, Blake has meetings, and I'm stuck in the hospital with Brinley, so Carter is going to have some good one on one time for grandparents. He's really excited for it. I did get to spend sometime with him Wednesday which was important to both of us, I miss him like crazy when I'm here.
Also the news came back that the virus was indeed strep, which means we should be going home this weekend! Carter will still be going to my parents house, because Brinley will still need IV antibiotics everyday for 10 days, but it's a lot better than having to stay here. Her counts have picked back up, platelets are 93, WBC .9, Hemoglobin 87. She may need a blood transfusion before we head home, but that will just give her an extra push to feel better.
