Positive Culture

The Boy has some sort of staph infection. The blood culture was positive. Tomorrow they will find out exactly what kind of infection, and they'll be treating it with vancomycin in the meantime. That's one of the really strong antibiotics.

The scan today was decent. Some areas of concern in the lungs that they think are related to his coughing and cold; he will be rescanned in three weeks.

Scared? You bet. But he's my boy.

Yikes, glad to hear that you know what is going on, but sorry to hear that he'll need strong antibiotics. Hoping for a speedy recovery. Keeping you guys in my thoughts.
