And now!!!

Yesterday night/early morning the boys arrived had test run and an IV placed in order to start antibiotics. He slept pretty good and had a nice day Saturday. Gators hematocrit was low so they did a transfusion and continued to monitor him the rest of the day. He seemed to perk up a little and wanted to ride the tractor. The rest of Saturday was pretty quiet. Sunday they told us nothing had grown out yet and we would most likely go home Monday. He continued to have IV antibiotics and rested all day. We also made it to fast and testimony at the branch. The spirit is amazing there, I am pretty sure that angels attend that meeting. Also the hospital would be Our Saviors first stop. You testimony can either be shattered by Illness or it can grow immensely. I have decided the burden is too great for me and that the only way to go is to rely on Heavenly Father. He in turn can touch everyone else who is either watching over my home babies, or guiding the hands and hearts of the nurses and doctors. Another fun thing, Gator was moved from the ghetto in J pod to O pod which is practically the Hilton!! Who hoo!

Amen!!!!! I could not have said it better. I love going to church there. For the ghetto, YUCK!!!! They have been telling me for years that they are going to redo it. I LOVE moving to the other rooms. You go from the ghetto to that and my spirits are lifted quickly. I wish we could come and see you tomorrow when we are up but I don't dare take K around days before her surgery. Hoping that all goes well!!!!

Yay for getting out of ghetto pod! I am glad he seems to be doing fairly well there and I hope it brings him peace of mind to have a team monitoring him so that nothing gets missed!

SO glad to hear that things are looking up! We continue to pray for each of you.
I too agree with your feelings towards the branch there! I was super bummed out when we had to leave last weeks sacrament early for a potty break! :)

Hey Brynn!
There is a new type of "bug identifier" being used at PCMC. I'm pretty sure it is called FilmArray. It can scan for 21 different bugs in one hour. Have they tried this? Maybe it can help at least rule out what it is NOT. As we all know all too well Medicine in a process of elimination. Best of Luck getting Gator healthy and home.
