Faye's infection is still causing problems. This morning her fever was down, she was sitting up and talking. Although she still didn't eat she did drink some which she doesn't stay down long. But after getting their hopes up that it was on its way out, she took a bad turn this evening. Her fever went to 104 again. She was shaking. And the nurses thought she looked really bad, like drained and pale I guess. The doctors took a look and said her blood wasn't circulating properly. They said she was "modeling" and her "cap refill" was slow. I think Nick said that's when you push on your fingernail and it goes white and wasn't going back to pink. The doctors told the nurses to prep some of the PICU guys because she might be coming up soon. But after a bolus and Tylenol through the IV (so she wouldn't throw it up) she started to get a little better. She was pretty agitated when she was awake for awhile but is sleeping now. They gave her Avitan for her stomach pain and that knocks her out. So, she is still in her room. And it doesn't look like the PICC line will have to be removed because the cultures from yesterday came back negative. Yay Faye! Keep Fighting!
