Today was a loooong, but fun day. It snowed...and hard too! We are going to keep this update short and sweet. No new news is good news. Tomorrow they will be taking another set of peek and tough Amicacin levels...which means two blood draws, one in the middle of the night. So, Sage will hate that. Tomorrow is also football Sunday and I have informed sage that he WILL be giving up the TV so Mom can watch a few hours of games. The only bad news is that the doctors and nurses are inststant that because of the location of his PICC that Sage will not be able to practice or play basketball this season.
After such a fun day, I just don't have the heart to tell him. :*(
So far Sage's appetite has decreased significantly, but he is not sick from the increased Amicacin dosage that was started last night. We also won't know about his kidney function until after Monday. I am realistically optimistic that we will be released Monday afternoon to be home, on IV's on the sofa, by Monday night.
Sage felt so good today that he was playing in the playroom...made a haunted house craft (featured below)....played Tony hawk skateboarding....and went outside to play in the snow...TWICE! The first time he got to run around and around, and around. We made paper snowflakes for some of the kids that will be here for a while and hung them around our floor. Finally, my crafting brings happiness and not headaches :-) Then the second time was snowball mania with mom! Happy pics and video below :-) Day 1 of increased Amicacin is an overall success.
