Still in the hospital

Yep, we're still here. I got here this morning and they had just told Dennison that we'd be able to go home just after noon. Well, less than 1/2 hour later, the doctor came and told me that his blood culture had just grown something, which means infection. Bummer. The blood culture they took in the emergency room Tuesday night still hasn't grown anything, it was the culture they took yesterday in the hospital that has grown bacteria. Interesting. So they took more blood to do another culture and put him on a different antibiotic. As long as this culture is clean after 48 hours and he doesn't get a fever and nothing else comes up, he can go home Saturday afternoon/evening. But we're not getting our hopes up. He's doing well right now. No fever, not much pain, and he just wants to play letter games on the computer and eat Popsicles. And the beginning of his next round of chemo has been put off until Monday. So he should have the weekend to rest. That will be nice. That is, if we ever get out of this hospital!
