YIPEE!!! I talked to the doc tonight and as far as he can see - the bug is no longer in Kevin's spinal fluid!! I just about hugged the poor guy - I think he was scared to death of me, lol! He did make sure that I understood that Kev's white count is still high so there is still some form of infection there - but the culture came back a big fat negative!!
So now we have to leave him on that medication for 4 more days, but I asked about his kidneys tonight and the nurse told me that his kidney is actually turning around for the better. Mind you there are still 4 days of the meds so anything can change - but let's focus on the good, ok?
So the Pittsburgh Post Gazette did a story on Kev and all of those that are supporting us. Thanks Michael for a story well written. It's always a little scary talking to reporters because you hear all these horror stories - but I seem to have been 'given' all nice journalists. Anyway, here is the link:
A soldier, a mom, a world of friends
Kinda weird seeing your photo in the paper. It's one thing when it's Kevin - he deserves it, but it's another when it's me. Oh - and this photo was taken the day before Kev left for Basic Training, almost a year ago. Not sure how Michael got it, but I am guessing Moe gave it to him (you better run, girly! LOL).
Ok, so to finish up - Kev's left arm was really active today. He brought it all the way up to his face one time and another he almost touched his right shoulder with his 'fingers' (his fingers are actually completely encased in gauze with splints up to his elbows). I was so excited. We didn't have any moments where he responded, but all in all - it was still a great day!
Gonna sign off early tonight. I am feeling a little nauseous. I sure hope I am not getting sick. I won't be able to go in to see Kev (not that I would risk it anyway if I were sick) and that would leave poor Breeze on her own.
Have a good night everyone! And celebrate real loud!
