They redid all the tests today, new blood cultures, new urine and a nasal swab. They want to confirm a positive result with the new tests. Since starting the antibiotics his fever is gone, his breathing is better and he is becoming a good eater. Hoepfully we will have more answers tomorrow.
As if that wasnt enough though, poor little guy has a questionable mass on his left thigh and his left leg won't straighten out. They put an ortho consult in, they should be in tomorrow. Has anyone experienced anything like this with a premie, my mom thinks maybe his muscle/joints may have not finished growing in utereo yet???
I am so clue less and feel so helpless. Hopefully it's something small. They originally thought the mass was from the vitamin K injection he got at birth, but since he is two weeks old now and it hasn't resolved, they are a little concerned.
I'll keep you guys updated.
