Klaw is back in the hospital. He has what started out as normal cold symptoms. About 24 hours after he first started showing signs, he became too congested to drink from his bottle so I had to take him to the CHKD emergency room. As was expected, he was admitted and we got a room around 6:30am Friday morning. He's on d10 fluids to keep him hydrated & nourished. His initial flu screening came back negative but the fact that they suspected the flu got us a private room. SCORE! His first urine screening showed a large amount of e. Coli, so they are going to start him on antibiotics & retest his urine. If the second urine screen is different (not an overabundance of e. Coli), they can assume the first test was contaminated and stop the antibiotics.
Dr. Proud is concerned that he may fall into the group of Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorder kids who have compromised immune systems, so we will be testing his immunoglobulin levels before he leaves the hospital. There is a once-a-month injection he can receive to help boost his immune system should he need it. As with everything, there are risks and benefits. Since this is the first time it has been brought up, I don't have much more to share at this point. Hopefully, it will be a moot issue and nothing is wrong with his immune system.
