Andrew was released early afternoon Tuesday.  He was sent home with an oral antibiotic.  Last night, Andrew was looking forward to watching the much hated Miami Heat play against his beloved Bulls, with his mom.  During dinner before the game, Andrew started to shiver, indicating he probably was developing a fever.  They went straight to Children's and were admitted later that night.

Andrew has many opportunities to see the Bulls, Hawks and the Sox with incredible tickets, but because of his health he rarely if ever has gone.  Sucks doesn't it.  I grieve and am sad for my son who is missing out on many things, but I guess I have to keep the faith God has a greater plans for Andrew than watching his favorite sport teams with incredible seats;-)

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 
Jeremiah 29:11

Will keep you updated, but it looks like at least a 48 hour stay.  



I found out Andrew's blood pressure went extremely low due to the three antibiotics administered to treat the bacterial infection found in Andrew's blood cultures.  As a result of the low bp, he was given dopamine to get his bp up and three bags of iv fluids.  He looks good and if the cultures from his blood are clear, we should be able to go home Sunday.  Please pray the cultures are clear.  

Happy Weekend!
