Another line infection!

William has been unwell since the weekend. He has bronchiolitis and has had some high fevers. We hoped this was all due to the virus but, yesterday, we got the call to say that one of his blood cultures does have a bug. Once again, it is one of his gut bugs. He had cultures earlier in the week that were clear so it looks like he has ended up with another line infection due to being run down and unwell. He has been neutropenic (low white cells) for the last 2 weeks so that doesn't help either. He is doing OK at home on the IV antibiotics so, hopefully, they will let us stay here.

Awwww, poor William. :o(

Really hope that he can stay home with his family and that the IVs do the trick. Hugs for his bronchiolitis too, he must be feeling so rubbish.
