FEVER AND INFECTION STRIKES AGAIN

Max always seems to know when something BIG is coming up...heart surgery, going home, etc.! As the day progressed, Max felt worse and worse. A few hours ago he spiked a fever of 102 and heart rate was hovering in the 200s. He was facing respiratory distress...and there was quite the concern. If he continued that trend, he would be back in the ICU. Fortunately, his fever has subsided with the help of some drugs...and he seems much more comfortable. He even was playing with his tongue...a favorite activity of lil' Max. Until then, he had been absolutely miserable all afternoon and evening. Heartbreaking...nothing was making him settle down.

Hopefully he continues to stay stable throughout the night...we cannot afford a serious respiratory infection. We currently are in "ISO" (isolation) until the tests come back tomorrow.

My fingers are crossed that is will pass very, very soon so Max can be home for Christmas.
