I would hazard a guess that it will come as no surprise to anyone that the spinal tap was not done today either. Kev's blood still didn't thicken enough - even with frozen plasma being infused into him. So they have decided to leave him off of the blood thinner overnight and check him at 4am. I think it may actually happen tomorrow. I sure hope so anyway. I am a little concerned about them putting him into the fetal position for it though. I just can't imagine how painful that will be for him. I hope they give him something for pain beforehand...
Kevin now has thrush as well. If I am not mistaken - that is basically a yeast infection located in the mouth and the back of the throat. His poor tongue is white and he has all kind of dried 'stuff' in his mouth and throat. They are medicating him so that he doesn't get it in his stomach. Keep your fingers crossed on this one and also he has another respiratory infection. Keep your fingers crossed on that as well.
Not really much else happened today. It was pretty uneventful.
I was kinda hoping I could sorta ask a favor of everyone? Kevin's birthday is July 6 (Breezy's is July 2 - 4 years and 4 days apart) and I was thinking it would be really nice for him if we could get a few birthday cards sent so that we can read them to him. He might not know on that day (but then again he might!) so would a few of you mind sending a card? You can just send it to him c/o me at my address on the right side of this post. If it's an imposition - don't worry about it. I just thought it might be nice for him.
Ok - I am going to sign off and go watch a movie with my daughter and my nephew. They have been waiting for an hour now for me to finish posting. I am just so slow sometimes.
Take care, everyone!
