Day 15 - Fighting a Fever

Yesterday was another gut punch.  Jude was doing great in the morning, then around midday he developed a fever with high heart rates.  In a newborn, fever is very worrisome, so he had to get bloodwork, a catheter, start a couple of IV antibiotics, and will now be closely monitored for the next few days.  They aren't sure what is causing the fever, but maybe we will know more in the next couple of days.  This new development was heart breaking for us, because it means a new hurdle to cross before Jude is well enough to be released.

Sorry, no photos from yesterday.  Hoping for better things today.
