Joshua's come down with a yeast infection in his central line. Yeast is naturally in everyone's digestive tract and unfortunately, sometimes ends up in the bloodstream in people like Joshua. It colonized on his line (which is made of plastic and very attractive to bacteria and yeast.) The surgeon pulled out the old line and they want a complete course of antibiotics before they place the new one. We're looking at another week or so in hospital.
Pray that we stay infection free and that we can better control bacterial overgrowth in his little system.
I'll let everyone know when surgery date is scheduled.
Thank you for your prayers,
