False Alarm

Good news! The repeat lab work we did the other day to confirm the dangerously low white blood cell count came back normal! Hallelujah! There must have been some sort of error in the way the original labs were drawn or how they were handled or within the lab to get such a crazy result. But it doesn't really after. All that matters is that the labs turned out to be fine!

We're still waiting on the repeat PD fluid culture from yesterday to confirm whether or not Stephen has peritonitis, but the doctor didn't seem too worries, so I'm not getting worried about it. I am however a bit concerned about the crazy diarrhea Stephen still has and the super low blood pressure he's had for the past 24 hours. Plus, he just seemed off today and was a bit lethargic. I'm just hoping that maybe he's got a little stomach bug and this will pass by the end of the weekend. So we're staying at home this weekend and taking it easy. Maybe a little haircut for Master Stephen and a ride on the choo choo at the mall. Can't wait to see his face when he sees a real live choo choo train!!


  1. Hi Lindsey,
    Glad to read that things are on a positive note. Hope Stephen enjoys his choo choo ride at the mall and that all of you have a relaxing weekend.
