So Close to Going Home!
Hey everyone! Well, Lincoln got over his CMV and was discharged on Monday back to the Tiverton House. Unfortunately we are back in the hospital! Tuesday, after Lincoln got discharged we took him to clinic for a check up. There the Dr's told us that we no longer need to be here and that we can finally return to Fresno! We were making plans to come home this weekend when we experienced yet another set back. On Thursday morning Lincoln woke up with a 103 temp and a heart rate over 200. We immediately took him to the ER. We knew he had another bug but didn't know what. They quickly put him on antibiotics and later that day he seemed to feel better. They decided to readmit him to determine what he has. The last 2 days have been filled with tests, x-rays, cultures and medication. We still don't know what he has since most of the cultures are still pending. They are leaning toward pneumonia or an infection in the lungs due to an aspiration. Regardless, Lincoln is on multiple antibiotics and he is doing and feeling much better. If we get answers from the cultures in the next 24 hours, they should be able to specifically treat him and hopefully get back out of the hospital on Monday or Tuesday...and then on to Fresno ASAP. Keep him in your prayers! We are so excited to come home but Lincoln seems to like this place! We love you all! J&K
