After my last post, I fell asleep until 5:45 a.m. and texted Rich at the hospital. K was doing really well. No fever and happy. I later joined them at the hospital and got the whole story. So K threw up as soon as they got in the ambulance. His chest X-ray looked okay and all they could find was an ear infection. His WBC was 29000 which is high - and indicates infection. Here's the crazy thing. My little fighter went from a fever from 106.7 to 98.6 with just one dose of tyelonol - and he threw up within 20 minutes of getting that dose. He did not receive IV antibiotics until later in the morning - like 7 a.m. His fever NEVER came back. I really think God healed that little bugger. Today he seems perfect. Super happy. Great oxygen saturation levels on room air - like 96-98% which is REALLY high for him. He has had two rounds of IV antibiotics and will stay tonight so they can do a third round in the morning - but he is really pretty much perfect for K. Totally unexpected and miraculous. After the ambulance left at 3:15 a.m. early Saturday morning, I completely expected him to be intubated and life flighted to a hospital with a PICU. God had other plans!
