Mattie has been readmitted to the PICU. After we got home the last time, he developed a rash which I mistakenly thought might be Fifths Disease. When his symptoms worsened over the weekend, it was clear something was not right.
We made a trip to the ER last night for chest X-rays and labs. We were initially told everything was clear and were sent home.
This morning our primary care physician called me to let me know that Mattie’s labs showed a clear sign of infection and we were told to bring him in immediately.
We have been admitted and he is being treated for an infection that is in his blood.
Sometimes I just don’t know what to say.
