30/5/08 Over the last few days Skyla has been having lots of temperatures. Mostly In the high 38s, the highest has been 39.7 They think she has another infection. We have done cultures, wee samples, trachy swabs but nothing seems to be showing up. On Monday her sats dropped to 50% and wouldnt come back up so she had to be bagged. A few hours later they were 47% but come straight back up without being bagged. She has heaps and heaps of secretions too. As she is nearly impossible to get a central line into her they decided to just go with a iv cannula. She had one in her foot that lasted 1 day and yesterday they put one in her hand. She has been started on vancomyson and cefotaxime (not sure of spelling). They cover a range of things as we are not sure what we are up against again. Just when things are going so well, she goes down hill again. Its one huge roller coaster ride that we just want to end. When we find out what she has i will update as soon as i can. Thank you for all your prayers. Please keep them coming as Skyla really needs them again.
