Happy 4th of July! Kind of...

Good evening everyone,

Nathan woke up at 4 this morning throwing up. He woke up several times after that sick as well. Around 10, we noticed that he had a fever. We called the doctor and he told us to keep an eye on his fever and if it spikes again (it had went down some) we would need to bring him in. When we checked it about 1:30 it was up to 103.7. We headed to the hospital. They started him on IV fluids and two antibiotics. After the 1st antibiotic he got really sick. He went into Septic Shock. After about 45 minutes of them filling him full of fluids and giving him oxygen he got his color back and things got back to normal. They have taken him to the PICU for observation tonight and part of the day tomorrow if not all day tomorrow. He is doing much better now and should only get better from here. This does mean that he does have an infection, but we will not know until tomorrow what type of infection it is. It is possible that it is his central line and if that is the case it may need to be taken out. Please pray for Nathan over the weekend and we will update as soon as we can.
