The PIC line went in last night and they started his IV antibiotics of Co-Amoxicillin. Then this morning they got the blood tests results back which show an elevated white blood cell count, which was not what any of us wanted to see. So he is now back on the antibiotics Gentamicin and Tazocin, which is what he was on in the first place. His Potassium is also high 5.7, so they are keeping a close eye on that as well. In himself he is fine and ate all his breakfast and lunch. They weighed him today and he has lost another 6 pounds, but now he is eating properly I am hoping that goes back on fairly quickly. The physios walked him and got him to go down and back up some stairs and have discharged him from their care, so that was some good news. Today was his 3rd discharge day and he has missed it. One of the nurses indicated that that Keith would probably be coming home with antibiotics very soon. But on speaking to one of his doctors, they are in no hurry to let him go whilst he is still so unstable, which is a huge relief. So an up and down situation today.
