Home Sweet Home

Yeah Mason is back home! Mason and I (Mom) got home last night(Monday) at 11pm. It was a long 3 days at the hospital, but Mason is feeling much better now. The funny thing is, I think his body finally kicked what he had on its own! He didn't have any more fevers after Saturday. All of the blood tests and stool cultures did not come up with anything except for the elevated CPR(level of infection). By Sunday The CPR level had come way down, from 7.6 to 4 and by Monday to 3.5. The normal is 0.5 . So we know for sure he had some kind of nasty infection, but at least his body is finally fighting it off. There was speculation now of a little bit of viral pneumonia in his left lung and/or possibly a viral tummy infection. But what matters most is he is feeling and looking much happier.

His hematocrit(sp?) level was lower than heart babies should be,( I can't help but think all those awful blood draws had to of contributed to this) so he got a blood transfusion yesterday before we came home. That always perks him right up.

Thanks for all your love and support. Summer

He looks good in his pictures. We should get together before RSV season again. We decided to keep Carter in after Sept. 5th this year.
