Well, the did another echocardiogram and it shows damage to the heart valve, to what extent needs to be seen in the future. 2 weeks ago the echo was still okay, so the damage was done within the last two weeks, what a bummer. All we needed was for the blood cultures to be done sooner, but nobody thought about it. Had he not almost passed out the other day and had to be taken to the ER, they would still not have been ordered and he would still continue to be miserable and probably be getting a bone marrow biopsy to test for Lymphoma. Oh dear Lord, it just never ends. Well, no use crying over spilled milk, we just have to live with the facts and go from there. At least 4 weeks of IV antibiotics and then another echo to see what the damage is. If the valve needs to be fixed we'll have it done. At least he seems to feel better, no fever, no night sweats last night.... We went to see him twice today and he was so happy. He can't wait to come home!
Here is a page I did this morning. It's for the Itunes challenge at DD. I really like it, but not many people shared my enthusiasm :) That's okay, Rachel and I still like it. It's funny how people like some things that I find just okay and then dislike something that I really love. Different tastes I guess.
