Short hospital stay:)

So, sorry it's taken so long to update. Charlie only had to stay at PCMC for 3 days. Came home with another PICC and just got that out last week. Since then, fever-free and loving the summer weather. Here's a few hospital pics and fun home pics

Late night ice cream treats:)

 Hmmm...Maybe a doctor  some day?

 Lots and lots and lots of TV while in the hospital

In the hospital again:(

So, we had attempted once again to get Charlie off his antibiotics. And once again, he spiked a fever. And after his labs came back a little elevated, his doctors thought it would be best to start him on Zosyn again. We'll be here at Primary Children's for at least a couple days, then home with another PICC line. In the meantime, we will try to find out what is causing the infection.

Post more tomorrow...

I figured it's seriously time to update this blog. It really has been a while. Luckily, not much has happened with Charlie. A few months back we got the go ahead to take him off his antibiotics. But, about 2 weeks after that he got a fever so we put him back on them. Fortunately, his labs were good and no cholangitis. Then mid April we tried again to take him off the antibiotic but after missing only 2 doses he started getting sick but no fever. And, as luck would have it, I was in the hospital in labor at the time:) So, even though he didn't have a fever, we started him up on the septra again. Turns out, it was just a normal cold that all the other kids got as well.
For the time being we're keeping him on both meds for a bit.
