Today turned out to be a pretty rough day for Sam. They had to draw blood from him several times, perform a spinal tap, and he had to have a catheter put in, but it kept slipping out, so that also had to get done a few times. There was no sign of infection in his blood work, but Sam has become Anemic again and required another blood transfusion today.
I was there when several of his procedures were performed today and he definitely let the whole world know that he was not happy. With so much going on his feedings were late a few times today and in general he was very disgruntled all day today. Still no idea why he developed the fever this morning, but they have been able to control it with Tylenol. Hopefully his night will be uneventful and he will get some rest.
