Lauren 5.11.08

Lauren is still in step down at Duke. The nurse called this morning around 2AM to let us know that Lauren has another infection, her fourth since being admitted to Duke. They have started on her fourth round of antibiotics. They think it was caused by the femoral line they had placed in her groin. Due to her trach they are unable to perform a spinal tap to rule out meningitis, but they don’t think that is what it is. Lauren is stable at the moment so hopefully they won’t have to move her back to the PICU. She is still very cute and smiley so she must not be in too much discomfort. Lauren’s surgery is still scheduled for July and I am continue to drive back and forth to learn trach care so we will be prepared when she is discharged. I have some new pictures I will post tomorrow.
