Loving the Hotel on the Hill

Okay, Mason must have a secret love for this place! He spiked a really high fever (104.4) last night which had all the nurses hopping. We were worried because the high fever was causing his heart rate to go too high and his O2 sats too go to low. The docs decided to draw more blood to culture looking for a bacterial infection. And they also started him on IV antibiotics.


So far we don't know what's causing the fever. The x-ray showed no pneumonia. The strep test was negative and the swine flu culture is still inconclusive.....or still pending. The blood cultures will take at least 48 hours to show anything. For right now we plan to be here until Tuesday evening at least and hope the Tamiflu and/or the antibiotic will kick his bug and he will feel well enough to go home.


In the mean time, Mason is loving all his one on one attention from Mom. Maybe that's his secret love about this place :-)

So sorry you are stuck there. Feel better Mr. Mason!! Enjoy the one on one time with your little miracle. Maybe they could get some transplant testing done while he already has an IV in??

I was just up there. I would have loved to buy you a treat at the Rainbow Cafe. I will be back on Thursday but I hope that you will be home. I hope that they figure out what is happening with little Mason. Hang in there, let me know if you need anything, I can be there in a heart beat!

Wow, 104, that is scary! I was there today and almost came to the PICU to say 'hi', but then I wasn't sure you were there or somewhere else. I hope he gets better soon, he doesn't need something like this right now!

Oh boy... Mr. Mason, I am sure you could probably talk your mommy into some great one on one snuggle time at home! Get better so you can enjoy some peace and quiet (and your poor mom, dad, and siblings too!).
