tues afternoon update

His platelets WERE 97, so that is an improvement. The bacteria he had was a staph which is a common staph that all people have on his skin. On skin it's ok, in blood stream, as Jay put it "it make little boys feel puny". His bilirubin level is still high but that is expected since he doesn't really eat. Only way to fix that is to get him put back together again and let him eat more than a tiny drop of milk at a time.

otherwise, he is doing well. After they get a couple negative blood cultures they will see about a new PICC. Maybe he'll develop a good vein by then.

Glad to hear that things are looking up again for Riley. He's such a sweetie pie in his pictures. We continue to think about him every day and pray for God to watch over him. Love, Debbie and Gary

So good to hear positive remarks in your update. It is also nice to "hear" you sounding more upbeat today. Riley continues to prove he is one tough little guy, and he will continue to get stronger as he heals.
He has a strong Mommy also, and you WILL get through this...one day at a time!
God Bless,
