Evan had a good day today although he did test positive for rhino virus aka the common cold. I guess it is inevitable that he would catch a cold at some point and for all intents and purposes he is handling it quite well and is headed in the right direction. Since it is a virus it will just have to run it’s course. He started pedialyte this afternoon over a continuous feed and the plan is to start slowly until he is back up to his normal feeds. Slow and steady! His Gleevac is on hold until he is eating regularly again.
Thanks to my quick thinking I grabbed his medicine schedule before heading to the ER and they are doing a fantastic job keeping him on his schedule so we should be able to get back into our routine fairly quickly. Cameron is apprehensive about this hospital admission (rightfully so). I snuck out a tad earlier than usual to spend some time with him this evening.
All in all I would say it was a good day.
