fungus continued...

Scott did have a reaction to the drug. He started shaking, like bad shivers, then he started to cry and said he was "anxious" and "nervous", two words I dont think he has ever used before. He was twitching all over and getting really distressed. The nurse stopped the infusion and gave the antidote and within a couple of minutes he was asleep and grinding his teeth. She then restarted the drug but ran it much slower. It took three hours altogether.
She said that Scott did very good, his blood pressure stayed stable and so did his temperature. She also said the reaction could have been far, far worse and that all went well. They are now running two anti bacterial drugs, trying to cover all their bases I guess.
I have no idea if any of these drugs will help, nor do the doctors, if Scotts fevers and exhaustion are due to something viral then none of this will benefit him.
Im going to bed now, hopefully tomorrow will bring a better day.

You're right Stephanie - it IS scary - to think they are pumping drugs into him when they don't yet know exactly what is causing his fever - and when he is having such a bad reaction to them. As always all I can do is keep him in prayer - I know you have trouble with that but it's my way.
Hope today turns a corner for you all. Love and hugs

I wish I could hold the sky up for you for a bit so you could get some rest.

It was good to read the words "I'm going to bed." Given the day, "good" is so relative, I know.

Hopefully this day will bring something better.

Sending lots of love to all of you.

I'm so sorry the day didn't bring better news and that you are faced with so much that is scary right now. I am holding you all close in my heart and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope so much that today is a better day.

What an amazing story about Benji. How special Scott was the first to meet him. Both Scott and Benji are very special. :)

Sending hugs and well wishes to all, Angel Laura
